Jamie Foxx Disputes Woman’s Alleged 2015 Sexual Assault Incident

A woman has filed a lawsuit alleging that Jamie Foxx sexually assaulted her at a rooftop bar in New York in 2015, a claim the actor denies.

The lawsuit was filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan by a woman known in the documents only as Jane Doe. The suit alleges that Foxx touched her breasts and groped her under her pants against her will.

The suit states that the woman and a friend were seated at a table next to Foxx’s at Catch NYC in 2015. They asked Foxx for a photo, and he took several pictures with them. It says that afterward, he began complimenting her “super model body” and told her she looked like the actor Gabrielle Union.

According to the suit, he then took her to a secluded area, where he touched her inappropriately despite her attempts to pull away. When the woman’s friend found them, he stopped and the women walked away, the suit says.

A statement released in response from a representative for Foxx said 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,” the statement said.

The woman is seeking damages to be determined at trial, the suit says. The lawsuit was one of many filed this week under a temporary New York law, the Adult Survivors Act, which allows adult victims to sue over alleged sexual attacks that previously would have been outside the statute of limitations. The law expired after Thursday.

The Associated Press does not typically name people who say they have been sexually abused unless they come forward publicly.
