• Jamie Foxx is back on the news
  • This time it's for a rape allegation
  • THIS is what we know so far

The scene of the alleged crime? None other than Catch NYC, the glitzy New York City hotspot where stars shine and scandal simmers. According to the lawsuit filed this Monday at the New York State Supreme Court, Foxx is accused of a 2015 incident that's got everyone's jaw on the floor.

Jamie needs to prove his innocence

The plaintiff, going by Jane Doe to protect her identity, is not holding back. She's thrown down the gauntlet, accusing Foxx of "intentionally and without consent" crossing lines no one should cross, including groping her in ways that scream front-page news. And get this – Foxx was allegedly "intoxicated" during the ordeal!

It’s all likely because of the upcoming expiration of the state’s Adult Survivors Act. The act, enacted back in May of 2022, created a one-year period wherein alleged victims of sexual assault could file civil suits on charges where the statute of limitations had lapsed; the period expires on November 24 of this year.

As per 'Variety' magazine, the suit accuses Foxx of meeting the woman at a bar, where her group asked him for a picture. Foxx allegedly began complimenting the woman, and then took her by the arm and brought her to a secluded area where he began to grope her, before putting his hands into her pants and sexually assaulting her.

The suit alleges that a security guard observed the groping, but did nothing; Foxx stopped after one of the woman’s friends came to check on her.

It says that "a nearby staff member walked away" despite the plaintiff stepping back in an effort to get away. Foxx then continued the assault by putting his fingers inside of her until the plaintiff’s friend came to the area, according to the court documents. Jane Doe isn't just going after Foxx. She's taking a swing at the big leagues, suing Catch Hospitality Group and its related entities for dropping the ball on hiring and supervision. Talk about a plot twist!

It's up to the courts now

The stakes? They're sky-high. Jane Doe claims she's been left with a laundry list of woes – physical and emotional injuries, anxiety, distress, embarrassment, and even economic harm. The price tag on her suffering? That's for the courts to decide.

"Plaintiff suffered and continues to suffer severe emotional distress and anxiety, humiliation, embarrassment, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other physical and emotional damages," the document reads. The suit lists the restaurant; its employees; and the co-founder of Catch Hospitality Group, Mark Birnbaum, as defendants. The plaintiff is seeking a trial by jury, and compensatory and punitive damages.

Foxx, fresh off a mysterious medical episode earlier this year, hasn't chimed in yet. His reps and the plaintiff's attorney are playing a game of cat-and-mouse with CNN, who's on the hunt for the scoop.
