Jamie Foxx sued over pathway after woman gets injured

Jamie Foxx is being sued over the state of his pathway after a woman who attended a party in his home claimed she suffered serious injuries after tripping on his sidewalk.

The 'Soloist' actor is the subject of a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming he has been negligent about the upkeep of a sidewalk by his house.

Catherine Jones claims she attended a party at the 44-year-old star's home last year and suffered serious injuries after tripping over outside and blames Jamie for not looking after the area properly.

According to gossip website TMZ.com, she is suing for hospital expenses and other damages, a sum totalling at least $10,000.

This isn't the only problem Jamie has faced in recent times.

Last year, the 'Django Unchained' actor was reported to have been involved in a "full-on fight" with former business associate Breyon Prescott during an Usher show.

Onlookers claim the incident occurred after Jamie invited some of Breyon's friends over to his table, but didn't ask his former pal to join them.

The pair then had a confrontation, before Breyon reportedly punched the actor, who immediately struck him back before friends, including music producer Jermaine Dupri, waded in to help.

Jamie - who was unhurt - was escorted out of the building through a back entrance and accompanied by security guards as he returned to his car.
