Stylist Claims Jamie Foxx Intentionally Inflicted Emotional Distress

R&B singer Jamie Foxx caught a break in a lawsuit filed against him, where a stylist claims the actor failed to pay for her services. Superior Court Judge Jane L. Johnson rejected Stacy Young’s motion to amend her lawsuit on Monday (Jul 24.), ruling that it did not comply with state court rules, after she tried to add allegations that Foxx insulted her and disparaged her abilities in the presence of others. Young and her lawyers maintained that the alleged remarks are grounds for seeking damages for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Young first sued Foxx for breach of contract in February, claiming he did not pay her all of the nearly $6,000 she said he owed her for work she did in dressing him for an awards show and press junkets. Young’s lawyers said after the judge rejected the amendment that they planned to refile the allegations according to court rules. In court papers, Foxx’s lawyer, Allison Hart Sievers, maintained the new allegations are “complete fabrications and have no merit whatsoever.”
