Jacob Elordi has been going through a great time in his career lately. The Australian is the star of the Amazon hit "Saltburn", the premiere of which received comprehensive media coverage worldwide. However, now the actor finds himself in trouble, under police investigation.

One of the reasons "Saltburn" became so popular is the viral scene that spread across social media. In it, the character played by another star of this film, Barry Kheogan, drinks water from the bath of the character played by Elordi.

This scene was referenced by Joshua Fox, producer of "The Kyle & Jackie O Show", who recently met Elordi at the Clovelly Hotel in Sydney and jokingly asked him for his bath water as a gift for Jackie O, while recording the whole thing.

As Fox confessed on Monday's "The Kyle & Jackie O Show" broadcast, Elordi asked him to stop recording and not use the material. According to Fox, he agreed to these terms when Elordi attacked him, pinning him against a wall and putting his hands on Fox's throat.

"I'm backed against this wall. He's right in my face, and his two boys are now on either side of me", said Fox. He also highlighted that after this incident, he decided not to delete the recording of it, as this is his only proof of Elordi's assault.

New South Wales Police confirmed this event in its statement for "Variety": "Officers attached to Eastern Beaches Police Area Command are investigating after a man was allegedly assaulted outside a hotel in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Police were told that at 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 are continuing," - wrote Australian police. For now, legal representatives of Elordi did not refer to the whole incident.
