Update, Thursday, November 23 at 2 p.m.: Jamie Foxx has denied the allegations in a sexual-assault lawsuit filed against him over an alleged encounter at Catch NYC in 2015. Per Deadline, a spokesperson for Foxx is claiming that the alleged restaurant incident “never happened.” “In 2020, this individual filed a nearly identical lawsuit in Brooklyn. That case was dismissed shortly thereafter,” the spokesperson said. “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 re-filing this frivolous action.”

Jamie Foxx is being sued for a sexual assault he allegedly committed at Catch NYC in 2015. According to documents obtained by TMZ, the unnamed plaintiff met Foxx at the New York restaurant and asked for a photo around 1 a.m. She says he replied “Sure, baby anything for you,” while seeming intoxicated. He then reportedly said “Wow, you have that supermodel body,” “You smell so good,” as well as comparing the plaintiff to Gabrielle Union. The plaintiff says Foxx then pulled her to the back of the rooftop, where he began rubbing her breasts under her shirt. She says she tried to get away, and was spotted by security, who looked away. She says Foxx then put his finger in her vagina and anus, for which she had to be treated medically. She is suing Foxx, Catch, and its employees. This is one of many lawsuits recently filed against powerful men in the entertainment industry, including the quickly-settled suit filed against Sean “Diddy” Combs, and the suit against Axl Rose that dropped the same day as the one against Foxx.
