Hollywood actor and rapper, Jamie Foxx has been implicated in the #MeToo movement by a woman who accused him of using his penis to slap her face in 2002.
The woman filed a police report last week claiming that nearly 16 years ago, the 50-year-old actor, whose real name is Eric Marlon Bishop, tried to make her perform oral sex on him at a party at his house in Las Vegas. She claims that when she refused, he struck her in face with his penis.
The woman further claims that after the alleged assault, one of Jamie’s friends told her she had to get out of the house. She claims she went to a hospital the next day when she got back home to Los Angeles to get treatment for a severe panic attack.
The accuser says the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claims she wanted the alleged penis-slapping incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.
Jamie Foxx denies the allegations and brands it an “absurd lie”.
His attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, told TMZ:
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. 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 [Tuesday] about this story.
The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened.
