Foxx speaks to "Extra" about near-attack at Philly hotel

"I can’t really speak on it. There was a little drama but they fixed it and worked it out. Thanks to the Philadelphia Police department. We’re good," said Jamie Foxx to "Extra" host Mario Lopez, who asked the actor about an encounter with an intruder at the AKA Rittenhouse Square on March 22. TMZ reported earlier today that a 49-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after Foxx's security personnel recognized him as the man who days earlier had allegedly tried to gain entry into Foxx's room.

"I can’t really speak on it. There was a little drama but they fixed it and worked it out. Thanks to the Philadelphia Police department. We’re good," said Jamie Foxx to "Extra" host Mario Lopez, who asked the actor about an encounter with an intruder at the AKA Rittenhouse Square on March 22. TMZ reported earlier today that a 49-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after Foxx's security personnel recognized him as the man who days earlier had allegedly tried to gain entry into Foxx's room.

Philadelphia Police today identified him as Steven Taliver, according to the People Paper's David Gambacorta and Dafney Tales. Taliver, who also uses the alias Joe Mitchell, is being held on $250,000 bail. Taliver, who according to court records also spells his name Toliver, is charged with burglary, criminal threats, stalking, false imprisonment and harassment. He faces arraignment and preliminary hearing on Tuesday.

TMZ reports that Foxx, who was here shooting “Law Abiding Citizen” physically struggled with a man who identified himself as Beyonce’s producer and tried to force his way inside, once Foxx cracked the door.

“We have no record of a guest under the name of Jamie Foxx so we can’t comment on any incident involving him,” hotel spokeswoman Caroline Kerrigan told us earlier today. When we asked Kerrigan whether the incident may have occurred with a guest who looked exactly like Foxx, but stayed under an alias, she offered no comment. Foxx’s publicist said he had a call in to Foxx’s lawyer. A “Law Abiding Citizen” spokeswoman did not return our e-mail this afternoon.
