Reportedly, Jane’s case is filed under New York’s Adult Survivors Act, which gives Iovine 20 days to respond to the summons, which can be increased to 30 if the summons isn’t delivered to him in person. The claim has damaged his reputation a lot, and people are eager to hear his side of the proposed claim.
Jimmy Iovine’s Spokesperson spills the bin on the recent claims
Despite a lot of efforts made by several media houses, no exact information was revealed by Jimmy about his latest scandal. However, one of his spokespersons talked to Variety about the recent accusations and was shocked to see them. He stated that no one had ever made these claims before, and they were completely baffled after seeing the accusations.

“We are quite shocked and baffled by this alleged claim. This inquiry is the first we’ve heard of this matter. No one has ever made a claim like this against Jimmy Iovine, nor have we been contacted or made aware of any complaint by anyone, including this unknown plaintiff prior to now,” said the Spokesperson.
Jimmy Iovine isn’t the only one who has been at the center of controversy since the passing of the Adult Survivors Act. Famous personalities like Jamie Foxx, Cuba Gooding Jr., and many others have already been accused of s*xual assault under the act. Whether the claims turn out to be true or false, it has degraded the reputation of the $1 billion net-worth entrepreneur.
