Police investigating Jacob Elordi after alleged assault

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Joshua Fox asked the actor: “Jackie wants a birthday present…she's a big fan of the movie.

When the interpreter of Felix in Saltburn questioned the nature of the request, Joshua Fox then allegedly continued and demanded that he put “his bath water“. The water in question has a direct link to one of the scenes in the film Saltburn, in which Oliver (Barry Keoghan) drinks Felix's (Jacob Elordi) bathwater in an attempt to suck out all the fluids he can. Initially believing it to be a joke, the actor ended up asking to stop filming at the producer's insistence.

Joshua Fox claims that Jacob Elordi asked him to delete the recording, but the situation escalated when he refused to remove them from his file. “If I delete these images, there will no longer be proof that this meeting took place“, he explained during Monday's Show.

According to Joshua Fox, Jacob Elordi then “rocked and pushed” the producer “against the wall“, before pretending to strangle him. The outlet reports that Joshua Fox made a report to the Waverley police station in Australia shortly after the alleged confrontation, but has yet to make a formal statement.
