Corinne Foxx Says Dad Jamie Once Went to a BF’s House to Scare Him!

Jamie Foxx sure knows how to embarrass daughter Corinne!

While appearing on Wednesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Corinne — who is an executive producer on the Netflix comedy “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!” alongside her famous father — revealed how the show is inspired by their real-life father-daughter dynamic.

“I think it’s the second or third episode, but in the show he goes to Sasha — the name of the daughter — her boyfriend’s house to intimidate him and scare him and he brings all his muscular friends with him, and that really happened to me in real life,” the 27-year-old dished to Kimmel.

However, Corinne wasn’t aware that Jamie actually did that until years later!

“I didn’t know until years later because my boyfriend was too scared to tell me. My dad was like, ‘Oh yeah, we went to his house and I brought all my tough friends and we did the whole shotgun speech.’ And I was like, ‘That makes sense now. In retrospect, that makes sense.’”

Unfortunately, Jamie’s scare tactics eventually led to Corinne and her boyfriend’s breakup.

“He was very scared, especially around my dad,” she explained. “It all added up at the end. I was like, ‘Oh yeah, that makes sense. That’s why he broke up with me. OK.’”

During her interview, Corinne revealed what it was like to grow up with her father — who, in addition to being an Oscar-winning actor, is also a Grammy-winning musician.

“When I was 10 years old, my dad — you know he’s an entertainer, so he had to go to clubs and get checks and do things — he was like, ‘Hey Corinne, really quick, we just got to pop into this little thing,’ and he took me to a club with him when I was 10,” she recalled.

“There were popping bottles and there’s girls and I’m like, ‘What am I doing here? I know I’m not supposed to be here right now. I know my mom would be mad right now.’ “

Jamie is also dad to daughter Annalise, 11.
