Multitalented actor Jamie Foxx has found himself the subject of a shocking #MeToo allegation. An unidentified woman has come forward to claim that Foxx assaulted her at a party 16 years ago and the incident has still left her traumatized.
The woman says she and a friend met Foxx at a party held at his home in Las Vegas in 2002. At some point, she and Foxx began to get intimate during the party. According to TMZ, the woman claims that Foxx took out his penis and wanted her to perform oral sex. When she refused Foxx angrily slapped her in the face with his penis. Next, a friend of Foxx told the woman she had to leave the residence. The woman left and went to the hospital the next day for treatment for a severe panic attack.
Foxx’s attorney Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer stated, “Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him. The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman’s absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story. The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened.”
The alleged victim claims she filed the report just so it will be on record in case other women have similar incidents. Las Vegas police have listed the case as open investigation but the statute of limitations for an assault of this nature in Nevada is three years. Foxx’s lawyers plan to sue the alleged victim.
