Saltburn actor Jacob Elordi is said to be involved in a police investigation in New South Wales, Australia, following an alleged altercation with the Australian breakfast radio show producer Joshua Fox.
Local media reports that the altercation took place at the Clovelly Hotel in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, where Fox is said to have approached Elordi with a camera. Multiple reports state that Elordi asked Fox to turn his camera away and delete the footage. The radio producer refused, at which point the altercation escalated.

“Officers attached to Eastern Beaches Police Area Command are investigating after a man was allegedly assaulted outside a hotel in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs,” New South Wales police said in a statement to Deadline. “Police were told about 3.30 pm on Saturday 3 February 2024, a 32-year-old man was allegedly assaulted by a 26-year-old man.”
The statement added: “The man did not sustain any injuries. Inquiries into the incident are continuing.”
Born in Brisbane, Australia, Elordi is best known for his in Sam Levinson’s Euphoria. The Aussie actor most recently starred in Sofia Coppola’s subtle biopic Priscilla and Emerald Fennel’s viral Saltburn, for which he is nominated for a BAFTA.
He’s next set to star in Guillermo Del Toro’s Frankenstein adaptation for Netflix and will feature in Paul Schrader’s next feature, Oh, Canada. Based on the 2021 novel Foregone by the late Russell Banks, the film tells the story of Leonard Fife (Richard Gere), a famed documentary filmmaker who takes stock of his life, with not long to go after being stricken with cancer at 80 years old. The most unreliable of narrators — and men — Fife offers the viewer a look at his home life, as a draft-dodging artist who abandoned one family for another, consistently evading any sense of responsibility for actions as he starts a new life in Canada.
