Hollywood heartthrob Jacob Elordi was allegedly involved in an altercation with a TikToker and KIIS FM employee outside a popular bar.
The altercation is said to have unfolded outside the Clovelly Hotel in Sydney’s eastern suburbs at 3.30pm on Saturday.
KIIS FM radio employee Joshua Fox, 32, approached the 26-year-old actor for comment before an argument allegedly broke out, the Daily Telegraph reported.
NSW Police said an investigation had been launched after a 32-year-old was allegedly assaulted by a 26-year-old.
USA Online Post Australia can reveal police have seized CCTV of the alleged assault. Mr Fox is yet to make an official statement
Hollywood heartthrob and movie star Jacob Elordi was allegedly involved in an altercation with a TikToker and KIIS FM employee outside a popular bar
KIIS FM radio employee and TikToker Joshua Fox has been contacted for comment.
“The man did not sustain any injuries,” a NSW Police spokesman said.
“Inquiries into the incident are continuing.”
Elordi, who recently starred in the blockbuster Saltburn, had been at the hotel for several hours, cozying up before the alleged incident unfolded.
The Australian Hollywood star, 26, raised eyebrows earlier this month when he made disparaging comments about The Kissing Booth film franchise, in which he starred between 2018 and 2021, in his GQ Men of the Year cover story.
“I didn’t want to make those movies until I made those movies,” he told the publication, adding: “Those movies are ridiculous. They are not universal. They are an escape.’
But fans of The Kissing Booth slammed Elordi online, calling him ‘ungrateful’ and ‘disrespectful’ to his former colleagues.
“Jacob Elordi needs to understand that when you mess with a project like his, he’s also messing with his co-stars, the creators, and especially the fans,” one user wrote.
“Those movies are important to a lot of fans. Don’t dismiss them because you suddenly moved a pen,’ they added.

Another agreed: ‘I don’t like actors who downplay their humble beginnings, where their careers began.’
The Kissing Booth was Elordi’s second film role and – thanks to record-breaking fan binges – he soon became a household name.
