“So I’m backed against this wall,” Fox continued. “He’s right in my face and his two boys are now on either side of me…I’m feeling quite intimidated.”
“The way they’re surrounding me, I’m thinking something’s going to happen here. Someone’s going to jump me or something. So I say, ‘No, I’m not deleting that,'” the producer recalled. “I refuse to because I feel uncomfortable right now, and this is the only evidence. And then Jacob kind of just flips, and he kind of pushes me against the wall, and his hands are on my throat.”
