American actor Jamie Foxx has reportedly suffered partial paralysis following a COVID-19 vaccine complication.
The vaccine, according to Hollywood journalist A.J. Benza, resulted in a blood clot in his brain that led to him being “partially paralyzed and bl+nd” in addition to a series of other complications.
Benza claims the news was confirmed by a source close to Foxx.
“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,” confessed the journalist, who formally worked as a columnist for the New York Daily News, during an appearance on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s online show “Ask Dr. Drew.”
“The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind,” Benza alleged, as he insisted his insider was “someone in the room” with first-hand knowledge of Foxx’s hospitalization.
Foxx was admitted to the hospital after suffering a “medical complication” on Thursday, April 11, according to his daughter, Corinne Foxx.
“Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time,” she said.
The 55-year-old’s medical woes began while filming his latest movie Back in Action. The movie, also starring Cameron Diaz, is said to have moved forward with production without Foxx, using a body double in his place.
