We can finally put rumors of Jamie Foxx being paralyzed by a COVID vaccine to rest.


The star’s representative has finally spoken out about rumors that the star was paralyzed due to complications from the COVID vaccine, and calls them “completely inaccurate.”

But let’s back up to get the timeline straight.

In early April, news broke that 55-year-old Foxx was hospitalized for a “medical complication.” But there were no real details shared about the star’s hospitalization, and speculation ran rampant.

Media outlets continued to rumble about the star’s health status, and at one point it was reported that the family was “asking for prayers,” which suggested that things were dire for the actor.

But on May 12, Foxx’s daughter Corinne took to social media to put those rumors to rest. She posted on her Instagram story, “Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday. Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”

However, weeks passed without much of an update.

Then Hollywood journalist A.J. Benza appeared on the podcast, “Ask Dr. Drew,” and claimed that he had the scoop about what was really going on with Foxx.

Benza claimed that “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. The blood clot in the brain caused him at that point to be partially paralyzed and blind.”

Benza then told host Dr. Drew Pinsky, “I am thinking, ‘Is that why he blew up on the set a week before this medical emergency happened?’ Is that why he fired three or four people because he had had it with these mandates?”

Benza also called Corinne’s statement into question, saying it didn’t make sense. “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. Then you tell me your father is playing pickleball, give me a break. There is a great shroud of secrecy around Jamie Foxx.”

And just yesterday, media outlets reported that Foxx was in an intensive rehab program that focuses on recovering from strokes, learning how to walk again.

In an email with NBC News, a representative for Foxx said that the rumors were “completely inaccurate,” but that hasn’t slowed the rumor mill.

Of course, this could all be put to rest if Foxx himself were to appear in public to dispel the rumors – but there must be a reason that he hasn’t done it so far.

Whether it’s because the star and his family values medical privacy and he’s dealing with something else, or because he physically can’t remains to be seen.

But it’s clear that the family does not want people to tie Foxx’s alleged condition with complications from a COVID vaccine.

Either because there’s really no connection, or because they don’t want people to use him as an anti-vax talking point.

Either way, the truth is out there – but it remains elusive.
