Jodie Foster’s rep has slammed reports that the actress attacked a 17-year-old boy in a Los Angeles shopping center.
Reports claim Foster had a run-in with the teenager after he took snaps of her and her sons as she emerged from a movie theatre.
The father, who (surprise, surprise) wishes to remain anonymous, says his son was there to see a movie with his girlfriend, clapped eyes on Foster, and took some snaps of her and the kids.
According to a police report obtained by RadarOnline, Foster allegedly poked the teen in the chest and grabbed his left arm during the May 29 incident.
“Jodie Foster attacked my son at the parking lot at The Grove,” the father claimed.
“Jodie pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm.”
The report adds that Foster, get this, hissed at the teen: “Do you even have a mother, you slime ball?”

Foster’s mouthpiece has naturally called crapola on the claims, sniffing out high grade BS.
“The young man was most definitely a professional paparazzi. He had a large camera bag and a 1000 mm telephoto lens,” the rep tells UsMagazine.com.
“He tailed Jodie and her young sons from the movie theater to valet parking. He crowded her and her children and took photos of them the whole time. She touched him on the elbow in an attempt to take him aside to talk to him and tell him to stop. He scared the kids.”
A source tells us no charges have been lodged against Foster and police will be taking no further action.
Update: The one which would have settled this ‘he said, she said’ dispute has “mysteriously disappeared”. CCTV footage taken at The Grove during the incident has gone AWOL, according to the teen’s father.
“When the incident initially occurred with my son I contacted The Grove to make sure they had video surveillance in the valet area,” the father told RadarOnline.
‘They assured me they did. But detectives told me that when they contacted The Grove for the surveillance video it had “mysteriously disappeared”.
Oh, the plot thickens. What do you guys reckon really happened?
