Actor Jamie Foxx Accused Of Slapping Woman 16 Years Ago…With His Penis
Last week, an unidentified woman told the Las Vegas Police Department that actor and comedian Jamie Foxx slapped her in the face with his penis when she refused to perform oral sex on him.
But the alleged assault didn’t happen recently or even within the three-year statute of limitations for the state of Nevada. This supposedly happened 16 years ago.
According to TMZ, the 50-year-old Academy Award winner is fighting back legally on the claim that she filed a false police report.
Allison Hart, Jamie’s attorney, told TMZ that Jamie denies the accusation and that he only became aware of the accusation when the news outlet reached out to his people for comment yesterday.
“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,” she said. “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.”
What’s interesting is that the accuser never filed a report around the time that the alleged incident occurred, something that Jamie’s attorney also points out.
“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,” she added.
According to Las Vegas PD, the accuser and a friend attended a party hosted by Jamie. When she refused to perform oral sex on him, he allegedly slapped her in the face with his penis.
The accuser told TMZ directly that after the alleged assault, one of Jamie’s friends told her she had to leave the party. She further claims that she suffered a severe panic attack the next day when she returned to her home in L.A., something for which she sought treatment at a hospital.
Although the statute of limitations has expired, Las Vegas PD is classifying the accuser’s report as an open investigation. The accuser also told TMZ that she was inspired to come forward after so many years because of the #MeToo Movement and wanted to encourage others who also wanted to come forward.
