Hollywood's History of Sexual Misconduct

"The incident never happened," the actor's lawyer says.

Jamie Foxx is the latest Hollywood star to be accused of sexual assault, and he has called the allegation "absurd."

According to TMZ, a woman filed a report with the Las Vegas Police Department, claiming the Oscar-winning actor struck her in the face with his penis after she refused to perform oral sex on him at a party he was hosting in 2002.

Foxx learned about the 16-year-old allegation when TMZ reached out for comment.

"Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him," his lawyer, Allison Hart, said in a statement. "The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman's absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story."

"The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened," the statement concluded.

The accuser, whose identity has not yet been revealed, cites the #MeToo movement as inspiration for coming forward after all these years. She told TMZ she was asked to leave the party, and went to a Los Angeles hospital the next day for treatment for a panic attack she suffered after alleged incident.
