American actor Jamie Foxx has joined the ever-growing list of celebrities that have been accused of sexual misconduct - this time the incident in question was slapping a woman in the face with his penis in 2002. Foxx has denied this allegation and has called it an "absurd" lie.
The alleged incident took place in Las Vegas, where the woman was attending a party at Foxx's place and he asked her to perform oral sex. When she refused, Foxx allegedly struck her in the face with his penis and told her to leave.
Allison Hart, Foxx’s attorney, told TMZ that "Jamie Foxx 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.
"The first time Mr. Foxx became aware of this woman's absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred sixteen years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives today about this story."
“The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last sixteen years until last Friday because the incident never happened. We consider it to be extraordinarily reckless for any publication to publish this bogus story.”
The Las Vegas police department has listed the case as an 'open investigation' as the statue of limitations has already passed.
A statement from the police read; "On June 8, 2018 a female victim came to the LVMPD and alleged that a sexual assault occurred in the Las Vegas area in 2002 and named Jaime Foxx as the suspect. A report was taken and the incident will be investigated. Due to the nature of the crime, no further details can be released."
Foxx is currently in a relationship with actress Katie Holmes. They have been together since 2013; "Jamie and Katie's relationship is not a secret but they both like to keep it under the radar."
