Jacob Elordi is allegedly involved in a police investigation in Australia after he apparently assaulted a radio producer on Saturday.
First reported by Australia’s Daily Telegraph, the “Euphoria” star was at a hotel in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs when he was approached by a man named Joshua Fox, a producer for “The Kyle and Jackie O Show” on KIIS FM.
According to the details, Fox claims he asked Elordi if he could have some of his bathwater for Jackie O on her birthday – a reference to the viral scene in “Saltburn.” Elordi allegedly asked Fox to stop filming and delete the footage, and from there the situation escalated.
“I refuse to because I feel uncomfortable right now and this is the only evidence,” Fox said on “The Kyle & Jackie O Show.” “And then Jacob kind of just flips and he kind of pushes me against the wall and his hands are on my throat.”
In a statement to Variety, the New South Wales Police said they are investigating the matter.
“Officers attached to Eastern Beaches Police Area Command are investigating after a man was allegedly assaulted outside a hotel in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs,” a statement from NSW Police reads. “Police were told about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday 3 February 2024, a 32-year-old man was allegedly assaulted by a 26-year-old man. The man did not sustain any injuries. Inquiries into the incident is continuing.”
Elordi is currently coming off of performances from movies like “Priscilla” and even hosting SNL. The actor is nominated for supporting actor on “Saltburn at the BAFTA Film Awards. He is also nominated for the Rising Star Award.
His upcoming projects include Paul Schrader’s “Oh, Canada” and Guillermo del Toro’s “Dr. Frankenstein,” in which he’ll be playing “The Monster.”
