JAMIE FOXX RELEASES STATEMENT ON ASSAULT ACCUSATIONS
Jamie Foxx has responded to accusations of trying to force a woman to have oral sex with him at a party at his home in Las Vegas in 2002. According to his attorney, Allison Hart, Foxx said that the woman’s claim is an “absurd” lie, though the woman has gone so far as to report the alleged incident to Las Vegas police.
“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“, said Hart. “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 about this story.
The woman told police the incident happened when she and a friend were attending a party at Foxx’s home in Las Vegas, according to TMZ. The woman claimed that Fox tried to get her to perform oral sex on him. When she refused, she alleges that Foxx struck her in the face with his penis.
After the alleged assault, the accuser told TMZ, one of Foxx’s friends told her to leave the house. She told TMZ she went to the hospital the next day when she returned to Los Angeles to get treatment for a severe panic attack. Hart said there is a reason the woman waited so long to go to police: “The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years .. because the incident never happened.”
