Jamie Foxx sued for alleged sexual assault in NYC restaurant

The case alleges that Foxx sexually assaulted a woman at a restaurant in New York in 2015

Jamie Foxx is being sued over allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman at a restaurant in New York in 2015.

A lawsuit, which was seen by the Independent, alleges that the Django Unchained star had been at Catch NYC & Roof in NYC when the alleged incident occurred.

The plaintiff in the case, who has not been named, arrived at the restaurant at around 11pm, according to the lawsuit, and was seated at the table next to Foxx.

She claims that a few hours after arriving she had asked the actor for a photo, which she says he agreed to.

The plaintiff then goes on to allege that Foxx, 55, who she claims appeared to be intoxicated, replied: "Sure, baby, anything for you."

She also alleged that Foxx had told her that she smelt 'so good' and had a 'supermodel body'.

The woman goes on to allege that Foxx pulled her by the arm to a back area of the rooftop, where she claims that he began to touch her inappropriately.

The lawsuit alleges that the actor touched her breasts underneath her top.

The plaintiff then goes on to claim that Foxx allegedly put his hand inside her underwear and sexually assaulted her.

The alleged assault ended when her friend saw what was happening, the lawsuit claims.

The documents also claims that a security guard had seen the assault but did not intervene, The Independent reports.

Now she has brought a civil case against both Foxx and the restaurant and is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

She claims that she suffered from 'emotional distress, anxiety, humiliation, embarrassment, post-traumatic stress disorder and other physical and emotional damages' and received medical treatment after the alleged incident, which she says is a result of the alleged 'sexual assault, abuse, assault and battery'.

UNILAD has reached out to representatives of Jamie Foxx and Catch Hospitality Group for comment.

The case comes as the New York Survivors Act is is set to end on 24 November.

This act allows survivors of alleged sexual offences to bring a civil case after the statute of limitations has expired.

That means that once a certain amount of time has passed since the alleged offence, they can no longer file criminal charges.

However, the act gives people the option to bring a civil case where a criminal case can no longer be filed.

A spokesperson for Jamie Foxx told UNILAD: "The alleged incident never happened. 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 re-filing this frivolous action."
