We associate awards season with unflattering couture gowns more than hand-to-hand combat, but after Jamie Foxx got jumped at Usher’s pre-Grammy show last night, we aren’t quite so confident. According to RadarOnline, Foxx fought with his former manager, allegedly duking it out before Usher even finished performing. “Jamie and the other guy started fighting about half way through Usher’s set at around 11:30pm,” their source says. “The fight spilled to the outside area and I don’t think Usher even noticed because the place was so packed with people.” Said the eyewitness, “When they got outside security intervened and after some cops approached both men seemed to make-up with one another before they left.” But…but…but Jamie has an Oscar! We though for sure that guaranteed you’d never have to sucker-punch your way out of a street fight ever again!
MediaTakeOut claims two friends of Foxx’s ex-manager joined in the fight, but Damien Dante Wayans described it as “a little altercation … between two friends” when interviewed by TMZ immediately after the fact. Said MTO’s source, “They didn’t beat [Jamie] too bad, but he definitely got a bunch of fists to the head.” Seems like there are a number of better ways to get a slice of Foxx’s fame other beating him mercilessly. Then again, we’ve never worked with movie stars.
