In a shocking turn of events, renowned actor and musician Jamie Foxx is facing serious accusations of sexual assault stemming from an incident that allegedly occurred in 2015 at a popular NYC restaurant. The details of the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ on November 22, paint a disturbing picture of the alleged assault, leaving many to wonder about the truth behind the claims.
According to the documents, an unnamed woman has filed a lawsuit against Foxx, aged 55 at the time of the incident, and the Catch NYC & Roof restaurant. She is seeking compensatory and punitive damages, citing the need for medical treatment and the enduring pain and emotional distress resulting from what she describes as “sexual assault, abuse, assault, and battery.
What happened between Jamie Foxx and this woman
The woman alleges that the encounter took place after she requested a photo with Foxx inside the restaurant. Despite agreeing to the snapshot, Foxx’s behavior allegedly took a disturbing turn. Describing her as having a “supermodel body” and smelling “so good,” Foxx reportedly began touching her inappropriately. Witnesses, according to the lawsuit, noticed her discomfort but turned away, failing to intervene.
As the photo session continued, Foxx allegedly escalated the situation by placing both hands on the woman’s waist and moving them under her top, reaching her breasts. Shockingly, the lawsuit claims that Foxx then proceeded to put his hands into the woman’s pants, touching her intimate areas. The woman asserts that the assault only ceased when her friend intervened after witnessing the distressing incident.
The lawsuit has been filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, a law enacted the previous Thanksgiving, which allowed a one-year window for sexual assault plaintiffs to file civil claims, regardless of the statute of limitations. This window is set to close on Thursday, November 23, adding urgency to the unfolding legal proceedings.
As of now, representatives for Jamie Foxx have not provided a response to the allegations, leaving the public in suspense. The gravity of the accusations and the potential impact on Foxx’s career and personal life cannot be understated, and the unfolding legal battle will undoubtedly draw widespread attention.
