Jamie Foxx accused of slapping woman's face with his penis in 2002
The Django Unchained actor has empathetically denied that this incident ever occurred and called it an 'absurd lie'
Inspired by the #MeToo movement, a woman has now approached the police accusing Jamie Foxx of slapping her face with his penis at his Las Vegas house 16 years ago.
According to TMZ, the accuser, who has remained anonymous, alleges that Foxx tried to get her to perform oral sex on him at a party held in his Las Vegas house in 2002. She told the police that she refused and, as a result, he smacked her in the face with his penis. She added that she was even asked to leave the party by one of Foxx’s friends right after the incident.
She also claims that she had a panic attack after returning to her home in Los Angeles the next day and had to go to the hospital.
Law enforcement sources informed TMZ that the accuser’s case has been listed as an open case, however, the statute of limitations in Nevada in such cases is three years and has since expired.
While is Foxx is calling the accusation an 'absurd lie', his attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, told TMZ that 'Jamie Foxx emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred.'
She also went on to say that Foxx will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman in response to her filing a false police report against him.
According to Hart, Foxx was never approached with regards the incident, until earlier this week.
"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," Hart said.
Hart added, "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 accuser says that the #MeToo movement pushed her to finally make the accusations and tell her truth. She did it not just for herself but for any other accusers that may come forward in response to her opening up.
Police confirmed a woman accused Foxx of sexual assault in a report filed last Friday.
“A female victim came to the LVMPD and alleged that a sexual assault occurred in the Las Vegas area in 2002 and named Jaime Foxx as the suspect,” Las Vegas police said in a statement.
A police source told The Daily News the alleged incident was too old for possible criminal charges.
“There was an allegation of a penis slap to the face and possible sexual assault, but this is outside the statute of limitations,” the source told the publication. “We did take a report, but there won’t be any investigation or follow-up.”
Foxx has never been married but he has two daughters from prior relationships. He is currently in a relationship with Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise's ex-wife. The two went public with their long-rumored relationship last year.
The former “Dawson’s Creek” star and the “Django Unchained” actor are believed to started dating in August 2013. But they reportedly kept their relationship under wraps, possibly because Holmes’ divorce settlement with Cruise included a clause banning her from publicly dating for five years, according to The Mercury News.
The #MeToo picked up steam in Hollywood after The New York Times and The New Yorker published exposés about Harvey Weinstein in October 2017. Over the past several months, more and more popular male celebrities faced sexual misconduct and sexual assault allegations.
Meanwhile, Bow Wow is clearly not buying the allegations against Foxx. In a lengthy rant on Instagram, the rapper explained that he didn't believe Morgan Freeman's accusations nor will he with Foxx's.
"I was going to let this shit slide. After Morgan Freeman, I said 'get the fuck outta here.' Now, Jamie... get the fuck outta here." He said, "A lot of y'all women need to get up off your mothafuckin' ass and get a job man. Go get a fuckin' job. Stop trying to use celebrities as a scapegoat. Cut that shit out. Nobody believe you."
"They hire the same fuckin' woman to represent them. It's the same story. Every week, it's somebody new." he said, "Y'all makin' it bad for women that's really out here getting touched and abused by mothafuckas. 'Cause ain't nobody going to be believin' them."
