Cause of Jamie Foxx Stroke Revealed?

Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx was hospitalized last month after suffering a medical emergency.

Actor Jamie Foxx Suffers Medical Emergency

There was much speculation Foxx suffered a stroke after reports surfaced of the famous actor receiving rehab at a Chicago facility specializing in stroke recovery.

Boxing legend Mike Tyson later said in an interview that Foxx suffered a stroke.


In an interview with Dr. Drew, American gossip columnist and television host A.J. Benza offered more details about Foxx's medical condition.

Benza spoke with Dr. Drew about Hollywood being untruthful about COVID-19 and the experimental shots.

"I had somebody in the room who let me know that Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot but with the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it," Benza said.

"What I found out from the man in the room was that the blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind," he added.


Benza's comments conflict with updates on Foxx's health provided by his eldest daughter.

From Marca:

As previously reported, Jamie's eldest daughter has been providing updates about his health scare on Instagram. On May 12, the 29-year-old addressed an article claiming that she and her family were "preparing for the worst" regarding her father's condition. She swiftly shut down the media's speculations.

"Update from the family: It's disheartening to see how the media sensationalizes things. My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks and is recovering well. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for all the prayers and support!" she penned. "We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!" teasing the then-secret We Are Family series.

"AJ is rarely wrong when he puts himself out there. How many more? It took until May 11, 2023 for SAG/Aftra to end the requirement of shots/boosters to work on set. Many actors & crew got it because they were scared of being blackballed or losing agents," Mel K wrote.
