Oscar winner Jamie Foxx was stunned to discover the man he hired to decorate his home was a drug kingpin in the middle of an Fbi investigation.

The Ray star insists he had no idea he was working with a criminal - because there was no record of the man's murky past when the actor vetted him.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "(We) find out the feds (agents) were watching him for a year... Some of the fed guys were working on the construction (on my house), so that's why s**t was always shoddy."
