In June, a woman came forward accusing the entertainer of slapping her in the face with his genitals in 2002 after she refused to perform oral sex.

Jamie Foxx will not be charged after being accused of having slapped a woman's face with his penis 16 years ago in Las Vegas.

Now, though, the case is closed after police determined it fell outside the statue of limitations, according to TMZ, which adds that any potential civil suit against won't be allowed for the same reason. The case was previously listed as an open investigation. A spokesperson for Jamie denied the allegations.

Foxx's attorney told DailyMail.com: 'Jamie Foxx emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred'. TMZ has now learned the case against Foxx has since been dismissed. When she refused, she claimed Foxx struck her with his genitalia.

She reportedly claimed she was ordered out of the house by one of Foxx's friends following the incident, and later had to receive treatment for a severe panic attack when she returned home to Los Angeles the following day. The woman said she finally stepped forward after being inspired by #MeToo.

A representatives speaking on the behalf of the actor said that such an incident had never occurred, and he would be filing a report against the accuser for lying to the police about him. "The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday [June 8] because the incident never happened". Foxx is in the clear - at least criminally - because the statute of limitations of 3 years has long since run.
