It looks like Jamie Foxx is the latest celebrity to get hit with a #MeToo tale.
A woman has popped up from 2002, claiming Foxx slapped her with his penis during a party at his Las Vegas home. Law enforcement says Foxx’s accuser came forward last week, saying that “she and a friend were attending a party” when the Oscar-winning actor allegedly tried to make her perform oral sex. Then, according to her, Foxx slapped her in the face with his penis over her refusal.
TMZ reports the accuser told them a friend of Jamie’s told her to leave the house after the alleged incident. She says she went to the hospital when she returned to home to Los Angeles the next day because of a “severe panic attack.”
Las Vegas police say the case is still listed as an open investigation. Unfortunately, the statute of limitations on this sort of case is only three years in the state of Nevada.
As Foxx adamantly denies these claims, his lawyer, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, tells TMZ, "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."
Hart went on to say, "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."
According to TMZ, Foxx’s accuser says “the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claims she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.”
