Entertainment Desk

Australian police are currently investigating an incident involving actor Jacob Elordi and a reporter who accused him of grabbing his neck during a radio show prank. The incident took place in Sydney over the weekend, and the New South Wales police have confirmed that they are still looking into the matter. As of now, Elordi has not been charged with any crime.

Elordi, who was born in Brisbane, Australia, was at a bar in Sydney with his friends when reporter Joshua Fox approached him. Fox, who is known for playing pranks on controversial occasions, asked Elordi to fill a container with water from his bathtub in reference to a scene from the movie Saltburn. In the film, the character played by Barry Keoghan drinks water from a bathtub in which Elordi had previously masturbated.

During the exchange, Elordi asked if Fox was recording the interaction, and when Fox admitted that he was, the actor requested that the video be deleted. Fox agreed, but later refused to delete the footage from the ‘deleted’ folder. According to Fox, Elordi then “speeded up” and “put his hands around my neck” before leaving with his friends.

The police received a report that a “32-year-old man had allegedly been attacked by another 26-year-old man,” although the alleged victim “did not have any injuries.” The investigation is ongoing, and Elordi, who is currently one of the most famous actors of his generation, has not commented on the incident.

The incident has sparked controversy and raised questions about the boundaries between celebrities and the media. It also brings attention to the impact of pranks and jokes in the entertainment industry, and the potential consequences they can have. As the investigation continues, many are waiting to see how the situation will unfold and what actions, if any, will be taken.
