Jamie Foxx Quiet About ‘2002 Genital Slap Accusation’ On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Yesterday, the internet (us included) would seemingly have a field day about an accusation of Jamie Foxx slapping a woman with his genitals. According to TMZ, an unidentified woman alleges that back in 2002 when she turned down giving Foxx oral sex, he then struck her with his penis. The woman would share that she was inspired to tell the story because of the current ‘Me Too’ movement. That same day, Foxx was scheduled to sit with Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the newest season of FOX’s ‘Beat Shazam’. Despite the controversy surrounding Foxx, he would decide to stay quiet about the accusations. Instead, Jamie would impersonate LeBron James and his crazy house parties.

Jamie Foxx has now become the latest celebrity accused of some sort of sexual misconduct. According to reports, Foxx has been alleged by an unknown woman to have slapped her with his penis back in 2002. According to an exclusive shared by TMZ, the woman says she was struck by Foxx’s penis when she wouldn’t agree to perform oral sex on Foxx. Jamie’s attorney has spoken out, stating that he “Emphatically denies the incident occurred.” On top of his denial, Foxx will reportedly file a police report against the woman for filing a ‘fake police report.’ Curious to see if Foxx will address this when he kicks off his long-awaited comedy tour.

The alleged incident took place in Las Vegas 16 years ago. The woman told police she was attending a party at the actor’s place, when he asked her to perform oral sex. She claims that after she refused, Foxx struck her with his genitalia. After the alleged encounter, the woman claims she was instructed to leave the house. If this is true, then Foxx acted in a very irresponsible manner. Maybe if he had checked out an escort review beforehand he could have found a woman willing to perform oral sex. When she returned home to L.A. the next day, Foxx’s accuser claims she went to the hospital after suffering from a panic attack related to the assault. Though the Las Vegas police department has the case listed as an “open investigation,” the statute of limitations has already passed, since it’s three years in Nevada.

Jamie Foxx Set To Star In New ‘Spawn’ Movie

Jamie Foxx is ready to leave his mark in the comic world as it was announced today that he will star in the upcoming ‘Spawn’ movie. The film which will be produced by Blumhouse film will also serve as the directorial debut for Todd McFarlane. Now, this isn’t the first time Spawn will be turned into a movie as it was turned into a film in 1997 with actor Michael Jai White.

He is convinced to become a Hellspawn warrior in exchange for being able to be reunited with his wife.

So this is one pissed-off antihero who attends to dispatching the scum of the city in good and evil battles that encompass Earth, Heaven and Hell.
