American actor, Jamie Foxx has denied sexual assault allegations after he was sued over an incident that allegedly happened in 2015.
In the new lawsuit, the 55-year-old actor was accused of placing ‘both hands’ on a woman’s waist, before moving them ‘under her top.’
Jane Doe, the plaintiff, claimed he “started rubbing her breasts” after he “pulled her by the arm to the back area of the rooftop” at Catch NYC & Roof.
She claimed further that the ‘intoxicated’ actor told her “she looked like Gabrielle Union” and touched her private areas.
Foxx’s spokesperson denied the allegations in a statement to DailyMail.com, saying: “The alleged incident never happened. In 2020, this individual filed a nearly identical lawsuit in Brooklyn.
“That case was dismissed shortly thereafter. The claims are no more viable today than they were then.
“We are confident they will be dismissed again. And once they are, Mr. Foxx intends to pursue a claim for malicious prosecution against this person and her attorneys for re-filing this frivolous action.’”
Doe in her lawsuit alleges that the incident happened around 1 a.m., a few hours after she and a friend were seated away from him at the celebrity hotspot.
According to the lawsuit, “the plaintiff’s friend asked Foxx if he’d take a photo with her and the plaintif” and he allegedly replied: “Sure, baby anything for you.”
She claims Foxx “seemed intoxicated at the time” and told her “she looked like Gabrielle Union.”
Furthermore, the plaintiff claimed he told her: “Wow, you have that supermodel body” and that she smelled nice.
After Foxx allegedly got physical with her, Doe said she “attempted to step away and noticed a security guard and others who saw what had happened” but says they “chose to walk away.”
The plaintiff said things developed fast and alleges that he “slid his hand into her pants and put his fingers on and in her vagina and anus.”
Once her friend saw what allegedly happened, the plaintiff said her pal rushed over and ‘Jamie stopped touching her.’
The plaintiff claimed to have sought medical treatment and encountered pain as well as emotional distress “as a result of the ‘sexual assault, abuse, assault and battery.”
Doe is suing Foxx, Catch and its employees for compensation and punitive damages.
