Sexual Assault Allegations

A woman has brought forth a lawsuit, alleging that actor, singer, and comedian Jamie Foxx sexually assaulted her at a rooftop bar in New York back in 2015, a claim vehemently denied by the actor.

The legal action, filed on Wednesday in the state Supreme Court in Manhattan by an individual referred to as Jane Doe in the legal documents, asserts that Foxx touched her breasts and groped her beneath her pants against her will.

According to the lawsuit, she and a friend were seated at a table adjacent to Foxx’s at Catch NYC in 2015. The women requested a photograph with Foxx, and they took several pictures together, as detailed in the suit. Subsequently, Foxx began complimenting her physique, likening her appearance to that of the actor Gabrielle Union.

The lawsuit goes on to describe how he then took her to a secluded area, grabbing her by the arm, and proceeded to place both hands beneath her crop top, touching her breasts. When he attempted to reach into her pants and touch her genitals, she attempted to break free. The incident was interrupted by the arrival of the woman’s friend, at which point they walked away from Foxx, as stated in the suit.

A response statement issued on Thursday by a representative for the 55-year-old Foxx firmly refutes the alleged incident. The statement notes that a similar lawsuit was filed by the same individual in Brooklyn in 2020, which was subsequently dismissed. The statement asserts that the current claims are no more credible now than they were then, expressing confidence that they will be dismissed once more. Additionally, it states that Mr. Foxx intends to pursue a claim for malicious prosecution against the individual and her attorneys for re-filing what is characterized as a frivolous action.

The lawsuit seeks damages, the exact amount of which will be determined during the trial, as outlined in the legal document.

This legal action is among several filed this week under a temporary New York law known as the Adult Survivors Act, which enabled adult victims to pursue legal recourse for alleged sexual assaults that would have previously fallen outside the statute of limitations. It’s worth noting that this law expired after Thursday.

As a general practice, The Big Big News refrains from disclosing the identities of individuals who claim to have been sexually abused, unless those individuals choose to make their allegations publicly known.
