Jamie Foxx denies allegations he 'penis slapped' a woman
"The incident never happened."
Jamie Foxx has been accused of 'penis slapping' a woman in 2002.
However, the actor has denied allegations.
TMZ reports a woman came forward last week accusing the Django Unchained star of sexual misconduct.
According to the publication, the complainant told police last week she and a friend were attending a party at the actor's house when he tried to get her to perform oral sex.
She claims when she refused, Foxx struck her in the face with his penis.
Foxx, 50, denied the woman’s claim in a statement through his solicitor, Allison Hart who told TMZ the alleged incident was only reported to police last Friday.
“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 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."
The woman also alleges that one of the Foxx's friends asked her to leave the house following the incident and she later had to receive treatment for a severe panic attack at a hospital in Los Angeles.
The accuser says the #MeToo movement, spearheaded by the public revelations of sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein, inspired her to finally file the police report.
She also claims she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.
Foxx is reportedly dating Katie Holmes. Pictures surfaced of the pair together just last year and the internet went crazy over Hollywood’s best kept secret relationship finally out in the open.
The photos came after years of speculation that the duo were dating but both actor’s constantly dodged questions.
