Jodie Foster claims teen's attack story a 'fabrication'

Posted on

A rep for Jodie Foster denies that the actress attacked a teen outside an L.A. mall, telling People that the story is a “fabrication.” “This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo,” the actress’ rep told People. “He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens. He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet.” The incident in question happened on May 29, according to police reports. The 17-year-old claimed Foster “came after him [and] poked him in the chest” and “pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm” after he asked her for a photo.
