The beef between Tommy Davidson and Jamie Foxx is decades old, but Davidson has just reheated it with some scathing commentary in his new book.
On screen, the “In Living Color” co-stars scored huge laughs, however, behind-the-scenes, Tommy claims it was no joking matter. According to PageSix:
“In his upcoming memoir ‘Living in Color,’ Davidson writes that the pair were filming a sketch in which Foxx was playing one of his breakout characters, Wanda — who truly believed she was the most gorgeous woman in the world — who was giving Davidson a massage.
The “Strictly Business” actor claims Foxx veered off script by strenuously pulling on Davidson’s underwear, trying to rip them off and leaving him naked.
Davidson says it was lucky he was lying down because his first reaction was to sit up and “bust him in his mouth, saying, ‘What the f–k, motherf–ka!’” Davidson surmises that Foxx did it for no other reason than to get a cheap laugh at his expense.”
Davidson also claims when the pair met back up for the film “Booty Call” tensions still ran high. So much so, that during a “friendly” basketball game, things got ugly real fast when Jamie rushed Tommy, almost causing a major injury. “If I had hit my head on the hardtop concrete, that would have been the end of me,” he writes. “I was ready to give Jamie some street-fighting lessons too, but the crew pulled us off each other and held me back.”
“Living in Color” is set to be released on January 28 — we’re guessing Jamie won’t be reading it.
