Jamie Foxx was spotted looking relaxed amid allegations he once slapped a woman with his private parts nearly 16 years ago.
The actor was reportedly on his way to tape an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday in Los Angeles when he flashed the surfer's classic "hang loose" sign at paparazzi.
The alleged incident took place in 2002. The woman told police she was attending a party at Foxx's home when he asked her to perform oral sex on him. When she refused, he allegedly struck her with his genitalia.
After the encounter, the woman said one of Foxx's friends told her to leave the house. She claims she visited the hospital the next day when she returned home to L.A. following a severe attack.
Through his lawyer, Foxx denied the claims to TMZ, which the Las Vegas Police Department is reportedly still investigating despite the statue of limitations expiring many years ago.
"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. 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," his lawyer said.
"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 claimed she only recently reported what happened because she was inspired by the #MeToo movement and wanted the incident to be on the record in case others want to come forward with their own experience with Foxx.
Foxx, who seems to not be too affected by the allegations based on the latest photo, has kept his personal life out of the public eye recently. He ended an interview a few months ago abruptly after the reporter asked him about his rumored girlfriend, Katie Holmes.
During the festivities surrounding the NBA All Star Weekend, ESPN Michael Smith asked Foxx about his Valentine's Day plans with the actress.
"...And I know that you're prepared, I saw pictures. Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball on Valentine's Day, like some real Love and Basketball game?" Smith asked.
Foxx removed his headset and walked away from the interview without saying a word.
The two have been rumored to be seeing each other for several years now, with the two appearing in public together fairly recently at Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy party back in January.0comments
"They'd both been in public relationships before," a source close to Foxx told Us Weekly in January. They care about each other a lot and they tried to stay as quiet as possible because they didn't want to ruin that."
Holmes was previously married to Tom Cruise from 2006 to 2012, and has one daughter, Suri; while Foxx has two daughters of his own.
