Jacob Elordi, the Aussie heartthrob of “Saltburn” fame, allegedly found himself in a tussle with a reporter who’s apparently known for being as persistent as a fly at a barbecue. The drama unfolded outside a hotel in Sydney, where Jacob was probably just trying to enjoy a bit of down-under downtime after scoring a nod at the AACTA Awards.
Now, here’s the kicker: Joshua Fox, the intrepid journalist from KIIS FM, decided to play paparazzi and pester poor Jacob with questions, probably thinking he’d scoop the latest gossip faster than a seagull snatching a chip. But instead of handing out autographs and posing for selfies, Jacob allegedly got a tad miffed.
According to the Sunday Telegraph, things escalated quicker than a kangaroo on a caffeine high. The police got involved, and before you know it, there’s more drama here than in a season finale of “Married at First Sight.”
And get this, Joshua Fox isn’t your average reporter. Oh no, he’s the mastermind behind “MAFS Funny” on Instagram, where he probably thought he could capture the next big scoop faster than you can say “G’day mate!”
But fear not, no one was hurt in the scuffle, unless you count Jacob’s pride. The NSW Police are on the case, probably scratching their heads and wondering how they ended up dealing with a brouhaha straight out of a soap opera.
Meanwhile, Jacob’s busy prepping for the AACTA Awards, where he’s up for best supporting actor for his role in “Saltburn.” Let’s hope his red carpet walk is smoother than his encounter with Mr. Fox. But hey, who said showbiz was boring?
