Jamie Foxx Sued for Sexual Assault

The incident reportedly occurred in 2015.

After the bombshell lawsuit filed by former Bad Boy artist Cassie against Sean “Diddy” Combs comes another sexual accusation against another prominent entertainer.

Multihyphenate Jamie Foxx has just been sued by a woman who claims the actor sexually assaulted her in August 2015 at a NYC rooftop bar. The unidentified woman filed the lawsuit on Wednesday, Nov. 22, in the New York Supreme Court. She alleges that Foxx fondled her and then violated her when he stuck his hand down her pants. She also named the rooftop bar, Catch NYC & Roof (Catch NYC Inc.,) Catch Hospitality Group, and the owner of the venue, Mark Birnbaum, in the paperwork.

The woman alleged she was with a friend when they were sitting near Foxx. After asking to take a picture with him as he sat with Birnbaum, an “intoxicated” Foxx “roughly” took her phone and took more pictures while making suggestive comments. After doing so, he allegedly grabbed her by the arm to take her to the back of the rooftop, and that is where he slid his hand under her shirt and started rubbing on her breasts, according to the suit.

She also claimed that when she tried to get away from him, the  Any Given Sunday actor slid his hands down into her pants and placed his fingers in her vagina and anus. A security guard allegedly witnessed the act, but the guard walked away. She also stated that when her friend came over, the comedian stopped the sexual assault and then headed over to the security guard.

The alleged victim states that she is suing the venue because the owner and the staff did nothing to stop it and were “negligent” in protecting their clientele. She stated that they “had knowledge of Foxx’s propensities for aggressive behavior toward females, the potential for unwanted sexual touching, and his bad disposition when consuming excessive alcohol.”

She required medical treatment due to what took place, experienced “pain and suffering,” and still feels the effects of the assault. She added that it caused “severe emotional distress and anxiety, humiliation, embarrassment, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other physical and emotional damages.”

She is asking for unspecified damages.
