Actor Jamie Foxx experienced a mystery illness on April 11 which forced him to leave the set of his movie, “Back in Action.” He has been out of the public eye since, and there has been little information about his health or when he might recover.

Now, however, Tinsletown journalist A.J. Benza claims to know what happened: Foxx suffered from the aftereffects of an mRNA COVID vaccine jab. Appearing on the “Ask Dr. Drew” podcast earlier this week, Benza alleged his source for this information had first-hand knowledge and was “someone in the room.”

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.

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?

Speculation and misinformation ran rampant after Foxx’s disappearance from public life. His daughter Corinne announced on May 12 that he was fine:

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!

Benza called those claims “all lies” and “baloney.”

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.

Dr. Drew weighed in on the seriousness of a blood clot and its threats to someone’s health:

Blood in the brain is a cerebral bleed. It is not a stroke. A stroke is a blood clot in an artery to the brain that cuts off the blood supply to the brain and the brain dies.

It has been widely known that he had a stroke, right? They have said stroke many times. To say it is a blood clot in the brain, it is a stroke. It is a blood clot in an artery that cuts off the supply … that part of the brain is dead.

It has very serious consequences. It depends on which artery and what the anatomy of that artery is to what parts of the brain and what not.

It must be reiterated that what Benza says here is uncorroborated. The 61-year-old started his career at Newsday, worked as a gossip columnist for the New York Daily News and E! Entertainment, and has made numerous television appearances. That doesn’t make automatically make him credible, but it does show he’s not just some rando with no entertainment background.

If this turns out to be true, it will be yet another tragedy caused by the vaccines. If however, it turns out to be false, then Benza is going to need to hide for a couple of years because the backlash will be strong.
