Jamie Foxx has been accused of sexual misconduct, regarding an incident that occurred in 2002, TMZ reports.
The alleged assault happened in Las Vegas, and according to law enforcement, the accuser, who remains unnamed, told cops last week that she and a friend were attending a party at Foxx’s place. When Foxx tried to get her to perform oral sex, and refused, the star actor allegedly struck her in the face with his penis.
Jamie Foxx is claiming the allegations are false and is already seeking legal action. His attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, told 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 adds, “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.”
Additionally, TMZ claims that Vegas PD lists the case as an open investigation, however the Nevada statute of limitations (3 years) has long since passed.
