23 Nov - Jamie Foxx is now joining the list of the many Hollywood actors that is being sued for an alleged sexual assault.
In a case that was filed under New York's Adult Survivors Act, a woman has accused the 55-year-old actor of inappropriate touching back in 2015, saying that Foxx (real name Eric Marlon Bishop) placed his hand on her waist when she asked for a photo, and began moving them under her top to rub her breasts.
She also stated that he dragged her to a secluded area of the rooftop at Catch NYC & Roof, where he touched other areas of her body.
The lawsuit also claimed that Foxx seemed intoxicated at the time, and made a comment that the plaintiff looked like "Gabrielle Union". He also praised her supermodel body as well as her scent.
The assault halted, the documents claimed, when the plaintiff's friend came to her aid. She stated that she suffered from emotional distress as a result of "sexual assault, abuse, assault and battery."
The lawsuit also named Catch and its employees, and seeks compensation and damages for what had happened.
Foxx has not responded on the lawsuit at the time of writing.
It is noted that the New York's Adult Survivors Act provides a one-year window for sexual assault plaintiffs to file civil claims regardless of the statute of limitations. The one-year window closes on 23 November.
