A new list of influential men have reportedly been sued for sexual assault and or harassment, including actor Jamie Foxx, former president of Bad Boy Records, Harve Pierre, former NFL star and ESPN host Marcellus Wiley, music mogul Jimmy Iovine, actor Cuba Gooding Jr, musician Axl Rose from Guns N' Roses, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, the Mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, the former Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, and Sean "Puffy" Combs has been accused of sexual assault, by more women. A third woman reportedly came forward accusing Puffy and R&B singer Aaron Hall from the R&B group Guy of taking turns raping her at Aaron's New York apartment in the early '90s.

Most of these suits have come under the New York Adult Survivors Act—the same act that Cassie Ventura used to file the now-settled lawsuit against Sean "Puffy" Combs. The ability to file under the ASA expired last week. Governor Kathy Hochul signed the Adult Survivors Act, creating a one-year look-back window for survivors of sexual assault that occurred when they were over the age of 18 to sue their abusers regardless of when the abuse occurred, according to NY.gov.

The details of all of the claims are not known, yet Axl Rose's alleged victim said he assaulted her in 1989 in his hotel room. Jamie Foxx's accuser alleged that Jamie inappropriately touched her at a NYC rooftop restaurant in 2015. According to Yahoo, Jamie Foxx stated, “The alleged incident never happened. In 2020, this individual filed a nearly identical lawsuit in Brooklyn. That case was dismissed shortly thereafter,” a spokesperson for Foxx said in a statement to In Touch. “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.”
