Jamie Foxx Targeted in $40K Scam on Netflix Film Set: Report

One employee was allegedly fired recently after someone apparently attempted to steal more than $40,000 from the “Blame It” rapper, 55.

This same employee may have been involved in past attempted scams involving wealthy celebrities, and police may have been called to the set of Back in Action over the Foxx dustup.

“This film has been a bit of a nightmare,” a source reported, citing filming delays due to bad weather in London as well as the firing of at least one employee.

“One staffer has been sacked, and there are investigations after someone tried to get access to £33,000 in cash from Jamie Foxx,”

the source claimed

“It sounds as though they tried to offer up a Rolex watch as part of the deal but now there’s an investigation into everything going on.”

“People will be glad when this thing finally wraps,” they added about the investigation.

The chilly weather in London — where the cast has been filming in recent weeks — has also become a big issue, the insider explained, while adding that the recent alleged con was “a bit more sinister.”

The Netflix film is Diaz’s first project since the 2014 musical-comedy “Annie,” which also starred Foxx.

The 50-year-old actress announced her retirement from Hollywood in 2018 and opted to focus on raising her family.

According to the reports, Netflix bosses reached out to authorities after learning of similar attempts at swindling actors out of cash.
