Mike Tyson suggested that the health scare that left Jamie Foxx hospitalized could’ve been a stroke.
The boxing legend clarified that he has “no idea” what happened to the Hollywood star, but “they said a stroke.”
The New York Post reported:
Foxx, 55, was treated at a Chicago facility that specializes in treating adults with “severe complex conditions,” reportedly including stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and cancer rehabilitation.
“He’s not feeling well. They said a stroke. I have no idea what happened to him,” Tyson, 56, said on the PBD Podcast.
It was initially unclear what Foxx’s condition was, and he was first hospitalized in Atlanta, Ga.
On April 12, Foxx’s daughter Corinne, 29, announced on Instagram that her father was under emergency medical care.
“We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” the statement from the family said. “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.”
A month later, on May 12, Corinne took to Instagram to give an update on her father’s condition, disputing claims the family is preparing for the worst.
“My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday!” she said in an Instagram story. “Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!”
Foxx was photographed filming “Back in Action” with Cameron Diaz, 50, just one day before he was rushed to the hospital. While he has been bedridden, production continued with his body double after a short pause.
The “Ray” star took to Instagram on May 3 to thank his fans and followers for their support.
“Appreciate all the love!!!” the post said. “Feeling blessed.”
