Hollywood journalist A.J. Benza recently reported that actor Jamie Foxx is “partially paralyzed and blind” after developing a “blood clot in his brain.”
On April 11, Foxx “experienced a medical complication” and was immediately put under emergency medical care.
Since his hospitalization, Foxx’s family has remained tight-lipped on the actor’s condition, releasing minimal information to the public.
However, during a recent appearance on the online show “Ask Dr. Drew” with media personality Drew Pinsky, former New York Daily News columnist Benza shared shocking new details about Foxx’s medical situation.
Benza reported that a source close to Foxx told him the actor is now “partially paralyzed and blind.” This source, according to the journalist, was “in the room” and had first-hand knowledge about the circumstances surrounding Foxx’s hospitalization.
“Jamie had a blood clot in his brain after he got the shot. He did not want the shot, but the movie he was on, he was pressured to get it,” said Benza. “The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”
While Benza is suggesting that Foxx has been experiencing serious health complications, on May 12, Foxx’s daughter Corrine reported that her father was making significant progress in his recovery.
“Sad to see how the media runs wild. My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating,” said Corrine. “In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”
Benza, however, dismissed this statement as “all lies.”
“If you read into what they were saying early on, ‘He is communicating with us,’ that doesn’t mean talking. That could be anything. Writing. Sign language. I know those little code words,” Benza said. “Then you tell me your father is playing pickleball, give me a break. There is a great shroud of secrecy around Jamie Foxx.”
Just days after Corrine’s statement, Foxx’s family members were spotted visiting him at a physical rehabilitation facility in Chicago that reportedly specializes in stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and cancer recovery.
