Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx has denied all allegations after being accused of sexual assault amid a slew of other accusations against other US celebrities.

The lawsuit alleges the assault occurred while Foxx was at a New York rooftop bar eight years ago on 26 August at around 1am in the morning.

According to the lawsuit, in the summer of 2015, White House Down actor Foxx, 55, allegedly agreed to getting a photo taken with an unnamed woman, saying ‘sure, baby, anything for you’.

It claims he went on to say, ‘Wow, you have that supermodel body,’ while at Catch NYC and rooftop, before later grabbing the woman by the arm and pulling her to the ‘secluded’ back of the rooftop.

It is here where it is alleged there was ‘heinous touching and sexual assault’ which has resulted in ‘severe emotional distress and anxiety’ as well as post-traumatic stress disorder for the woman.

His spokesperson has since spoken out over the claims in a new statement, obtained by PA.

‘The alleged incident never happened,’ they said. ‘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 refiling this frivolous action.’

The lawsuit, filed at the New York Supreme Court, alleges that Oscar-winner Foxx – real name Eric Bishop – was ‘operating through his position as a well-known celebrity.’

The woman, identified only as Jane Doe in court documents, is also suing Catch NYC and rooftop and its owner Mark Birnbaum, alleging they were ‘negligent’ and ‘failed to use reasonable care to prevent the acts described’ in the lawsuit.

The accuser is suing Foxx for damages, alleging ‘sexual assault, abuse, assault and battery’.

It comes as the New York Adult Survivors Act is set to expire on Thursday, a law passed last year which allows a temporary window for those who allege sexual assault to file past the state’s normal deadlines.

The New York Adult Survivors Act came into effect on Thanksgiving Day last year after a ‘look-back period’ for sexual assault cases where the statute of limitations had already expired was authorised.

It has given voice to victims of historical sexual assaults, and led to cases involving the likes of Donald Trump and Bill Cosby.

A year on, and it expires today, November 23.  More than 2,500 actions have been filed in a year. 

Since, alongside Foxx, a number of prominent figures have been accused of sexual assault.

Sebastian Chacon

Daisy Jones & The Six actor Sebastian Chacon has been accused of rape and sexual assault – accusations he ‘vehemently denies’.

Axl Rose

Guns N’ Roses rocker Axl Rose has been accused of assault and battery by a model and actress in 1989, which he has denied.

According to the complaint, obtained by People, he used his celebrity status to ‘manipulate, control and violently sexually assault’ the now 61-year-old model, Sheila Kennedy.

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has spoken out after he settled a lawsuit filed by US singer Cassie, in which claimed she was a victim of rape and violent behaviour during their decade-long relationship.

Claims were settled just a day after they were filed at a New York federal court.

Earlier this year, Oscar-winning actor Foxx revealed he suffered a medical emergency, and spent several weeks in hospital due to a mystery illness.

He later explained how he could have died if it weren’t for the fast actions of his sister who saved him, before telling fans:  ‘You’re lookin at a man who is thankful… finally starting to feel like myself… it’s been an unexpected dark journey… but I can see the light.’ 

Upon his return to social media in July, the actor was forced to shut down the conspiracy theories about his mystery illness, including that he had been cloned during his time away from the public eye. 

However, it’s not been an entirely smooth return as Jamie recently faced accusations of antisemitism after an Instagram post he shared about ‘fake friends’ and ‘fake love’, writing: ‘They killed this dude name Jesus… what do you think they’ll do to you?’ 

He later apologised while Friends actress Jennifer Aniston was dragged into the controversy when she reportedly ‘liked’ the post, which has since been deleted.

Metro.co.uk has approached reps for Jamie Foxx for comment.
