Jacob Elordi is reportedly involved in a police investigation following an alleged assault in Sydney, Australia, local media reported.

The 26-year-old "Saltburn" actor got into an "altercation" with KIIS FM radio producer and TikToker Joshua Fox, 32, outside a hotel on Saturday, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

In a statement to Business Insider, New South Wales Police said: "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 about 3.30pm 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," it added.

The Sunday Telegraph reported that Fox approached Elordi outside a hotel in east Sydney where the actor had been socialising. Elordi then became angry at some of the questions Fox directed at him, per the report.

Fox made headlines in Australia last year for crashing several "Married at First Sight Australia" weddings.

Elordi is back in his home country ahead of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTA) on the Gold Coast, Queensland, where he has been nominated for his performance in Emerald Fennell's "Saltburn," in which he starred alongside Irish actor Barry Keoghan.

Elordi was also nominated for a British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) award for best supporting actor for his role as University of Oxford student Felix Catton in the film.
