Jamie Foxx accused of sexual abuse in new lawsuit

Jamie Foxx was sued on Wednesday, November 22, for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a New York City rooftop bar in 2015.

The woman, identified in the lawsuit as Jane Doe, alleges that Foxx took her to a secluded corner of the Catch NYC rooftop lounge, rubbed her breasts and groped her under her pants against her will.

According to the lawsuit, the woman and a friend were sitting at a table next to Foxx and Mark Birnbaum, the bar’s owner. Around 1 a.m., the woman’s friend got up and asked Foxx for a photo. Foxx agreed and they took several photos.

Foxx then began complimenting the woman, according to the lawsuit, saying “Wow, you have that supermodel body” and “You smell so good.” The suit also claims he told her she looked like Gabrielle Union.

She alleges he then grabbed her arm and led her to a more secluded part of the roof, where he groped her breasts through her crop top. The suit claims she was caught off guard and tried to pull away from her, but Foxx then reached into her pants and “placed his fingers into Plaintiff’s vagina and anus.”

The lawsuit alleges that a security guard witnessed the groping but did not intervene. The woman’s friend came and found her, and Foxx stopped touching her and left.

The lawsuit alleges that the woman was in pain and had to seek medical treatment as a result of the attack.

In the action, the woman seeks compensation for pain, suffering, emotional distress, anxiety and humiliation.

The lawsuit also names Birnbaum and Catch NYC as defendants, alleging they allowed the attack and failed to adequately supervise their employees.

The lawsuit is one of many filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which opened a one-year window to file sexual abuse allegations that would otherwise be barred by the statute of limitations. The deadline to file such claims is Thursday, November 23, 2023.
