Woman accuses Jamie Foxx of sexual assault, Foxx denies allegations

In a recent lawsuit filed in New York, a woman known as Jane Doe has accused actor, singer, and comedian Jamie Foxx of sexually assaulting her at a rooftop bar in 2015. Foxx has vehemently denied these allegations, stating that the incident never occurred. The lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, claims that Foxx touched the woman's breasts and groped her under her pants without her consent.

According to the suit, the woman and her friend were sitting at a table next to Foxx's at the Catch NYC bar when she asked him for a photo. They took several pictures together, after which Foxx allegedly made inappropriate comments about her appearance, comparing her to actor Gabrielle Union. He then reportedly led her to a secluded area, where he allegedly touched her breasts and genitals against her will.

The incident came to an end when the woman's friend discovered them, causing Foxx to stop. The suit states that the two women then walked away from Foxx. In response to the lawsuit, a representative for Foxx released a statement asserting that the alleged incident never took place and referred to a similar lawsuit filed in 2020, which was subsequently dismissed. The representative expressed confidence that the current claims would also be dismissed, and indicated that Foxx plans to pursue a claim for malicious prosecution against the woman and her attorneys.

Jane Doe is seeking damages, the amount of which will be determined during the trial. This lawsuit is one of many filed under the temporary New York law, the Adult Survivors Act, which allowed adult victims to sue over alleged sexual assaults that would have otherwise been outside the statute of limitations. The law expired on Thursday.
