In court documents obtained by Radar Online, she says: ‘I was sexually assaulted as indicated in the Complaint and as a result, I suffered psychological and emotional injuries.’
‘I do not desire to publicly disclose my identity as a victim of sexual assault because this matter is highly sensitive, and I have already experienced significant shock, shame, and embarrassment for my disclosure due to the prominence and celebrity status of the Defendants.’
‘This case has already been on every major news outlet and has caused me to fear for my safety given the fame of Defendant,’ she added.
‘It is very difficult for me to come forward and talk about the events that occurred. The sexual assault I suffered has caused my depression, anxiety, lack of sleep, distress, and I am fearful that a public disclose will cause further emotional trauma.’
Foxx has denied sexual assault allegations after the star was sued over an alleged 2015 incident.
In a new lawsuit, obtained by DailyMail.com on Wednesday, the 55-year-old Oscar winner was accused of placing ‘both hands’ on a woman’s waist, before proceeding to move them ‘under her top.’
The plaintiff, identified only as ‘Jane Doe,’ claimed he ‘started rubbing her breasts’ after he ‘pulled her by the arm to the back area of the rooftop’ at Catch NYC & Roof.
She further claimed the ‘intoxicated’ star told her ‘she looked like Gabrielle Union’ and touched her in her intimate areas.

A spokesperson for Foxx denied the allegations in a statement to DailyMail.com, saying: ‘The alleged incident never happened. In 2020, this individual filed a nearly identical lawsuit in Brooklyn.
‘That case was dismissed shortly thereafter. The claims are no more viable today than they were then.
‘We are confident they will be dismissed again. And once they are, Mr. Foxx intends to pursue a claim for malicious prosecution against this person and her attorneys for re-filing this frivolous action.’
Meanwhile the Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff – who are representing the plaintiff – said in a statement to DailyMail.com that the allegations of the lawsuit being previously dismissed are ‘baseless and untrue.’
The statement went on to say that due to the passing of the Adult Survivor’s Act (ASA) ‘thousands of sexual abuse survivors have bravely come forward to hold their perpetrators accountable.’
‘The scars from sexual abuse have no time limits. The time for change is now. There should be no statute of limitations for any form of sexual assault or abuse. Those responsible must face consequences, especially those using their celebrity status to victimize others.”
In her lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges the incident occurred, around 1 a.m., a few hours after she and a friend were seated at a table away from him at the celebrity hotspot.
According to the lawsuit, ‘the plaintiff’s friend asked Foxx if he’d take a photo with her and the plaintiff’ and he allegedly replied: ‘Sure, baby anything for you.’
She claims he ‘seemed intoxicated at the time’ and told her that ‘she looked like Gabrielle Union.’
Additionally, the plaintiff claimed he told her: ‘Wow, you have that supermodel body’ and that she smelled ‘so good.’
After he allegedly got physical with her, the plaintiff said she ‘attempted to step away and noticed a security guard and others who saw what had happened’ but says they ‘chose to walk away.’
The plaintiff says things escalated quickly and alleges that he ‘slid his hand into her pants and put his fingers on and in her vagina and anus.’

Once her friend saw what allegedly occurred, the plaintiff said her pal rushed over and ‘Jamie stopped touching her.’
The plaintiff claims to have sought medical treatment and suffered pain as well as emotional distress ‘as a result of the ‘sexual assault, abuse, assault and battery.’
She is suing Foxx and Catch as well as its employees for compensation and punitive damages.
The suit is filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which opened a one-year revival window to file sexual abuse claims that would otherwise be barred by the statute of limitations.
The deadline to file such claims ends on Thursday.
At the time of the alleged incident, he was in a relationship with actress Katie Holmes, who he split from after six years of dating in May 2019.
He was previously accused of sexual misconduct after a woman claimed he ‘slapped’ her ‘with his penis’ in 2002.

In 2018, the Las Vegas police confirmed to People that a ‘female victim came to the LVMPD and alleged that a sexual assault occurred in the Las Vegas area in 2002’ and Foxx was named ‘as the suspect.’
At the time, Foxx’s lawyer issued a statement to the outlet denying the claims.
‘Jamie Foxx 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,’ Foxx’s attorney said. ‘The first time Mr. Foxx became aware of this woman’s absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred sixteen years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives today about this story.’
The lawyer added, ‘The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last sixteen years until last Friday because the incident never happened. We consider it to be extraordinarily reckless for any publication to publish this bogus story.’
The allegations come seven months after he suffered an unspecified medical emergency in April, which left him hospitalized for months.
In August, he revealed to his fans that he ‘is ‘finally starting to feel like’ himself again after his health scare.

While speaking to his 16.8 million Instagram followers, at the time, he opened up about going through ‘an unexpected dark journey.’
Despite the challenges in his recovery, the performer said he ‘can see the light’ and is ‘thankful to everyone that reached out and sent well wishes and prayers.’
‘I have a lot of people to thank… u just don’t know how much it meant… I will be thanking all of you personally… and if you didn’t know… GOD IS GOOD… all day every day,’ he concluded.
The update came less than a month after Foxx giving his first detailed update on how he has been doing since getting discharged from the hospital.
Foxx informed fans that he is not ‘blind’ or ‘paralyzed’ in an emotional three-minute recording about his health.
‘I went through something I never thought I would go through. I know a lot of people [were] waiting or wanting to hear an update, but to be honest with you, I didn’t want you to see me like that man,’ he admitted, with tears in his eyes.
The actor, who returned to work last month to film a commercial in Las Vegas, continued: ‘I want you to see me laughing, having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, [or] a television show.’
‘I didn’t want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through.’
The father-of-one added that he went through ‘hell and back’ to survive and has experienced some ‘potholes’ on his ‘road to recovery.’

The Beat Shazam host also praised his sister, Deondra Dixon, and daughter, Corinne, 29, for ‘saving’ his life and keeping the details around his hospitalization private.
‘To them, to God, to a lot of great medical people, I’m able to leave you this video,’ Foxx added. ‘I cannot tell you how great it feels to have your family kick in in such a way, and y’all know they kept it airtight, they didn’t let nothing out, they protected me, and that’s what I hope that everyone could have in moments like these.’
He proceeded to show how his ‘eyes are working just fine’ by moving them from side to side, before making it clear that he is ‘not paralyzed.’
Speaking to fans directly, he said: ‘I just want to say I love everybody and I love all the love that I got.’
The actor got choked up as he warned: ‘If you see me out from now on and every once in a while I just burst into tears, it’s just because it’s been tough, man. I was sick, man. But now I got my legs under me, so you’re gonna see me out.’
‘Man, I know they talk about people crying on videos… but I’m not going to do a take two, it is what is is,’ he mused. ‘Like I said, I want you to remember me for the jokes that I crack and the movies that I make — some of them good, some of them ain’t (I think I’ve got a good one out), and songs that I sing.’
‘I’m here on earth because of some great people. I’m here on Earth because of God, man,’ the performer concluded. ‘I’m on way back.’
Foxx captioned the video: ‘Thank u a billion to everybody… been a long road but all the prayers great people and God got me through.’
In July, the star was reported to be in ‘amazing shape’ as he resumed his work commitments, an insider told TMZ.
Another source added to People: ‘Jamie was putting in really long days and was spot on. It was like nothing happened. You would have never known [he had a health issue].’
