Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx is vehemently denying an allegation from a woman who says he slapped her in the face with his penis, The New York Post’s Page Six and TMZ report. Foxx reportedly called the allegation an “absurd” lie.
“The alleged incident took place in 2002, but the woman making the claim only went to Las Vegas police last week, according to TMZ. The woman claims she and a friend were partying at the Oscar winner’s pad when he allegedly asked her for oral sex. She claims that when she refused, Foxx slapped her face with his penis,” The Post reports.
TMZ reports: “The accuser tells us … after the alleged assault, one of Jamie’s friends told her she had to get out of the house. She claims she went to a hospital the next day when she got back home to L.A. to get treatment for a severe panic attack.”
TMZ notes that Foxx intends to take legal action against the accuser.
The report quotes Foxx’s attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, saying: “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.”
TMZ adds: “Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD lists the case as an open investigation. However, the statute of limitations has long since run — it’s 3 years in Nevada.”
Foxx won an Academy Award for his lead performance as Ray Charles in the 2004 movie “Ray.”
