"While we still don't know exactly what happened to Jamie or why he's there ... we know the facility specializes in stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury rehab, spinal cord injury rehab and cancer rehabilitation.
One source tells us Foxx arrived at this facility in Chicago in late April -- after initially getting treatment in an Atlanta hospital -- and sources connected to Jamie tell us he's "recovering well."
Foxx has now been in a hospital for more than 6 weeks straight, and as many of us suspected, the cause is one that dare not be named:
"Journalist A.J. Benza says he spoke to someone in the room with Jamie Foxx who said Foxx has a blood clot in the brain after getting vaccinated.
According to the source Foxx did not want the vaccine but the movie studio forced him to get it if he wanted to stay in the film. No word on the accuracy of this claim yet.
Benza asserted that the blood clot in Foxx’s brain resulted in partial paralysis and blindness, claiming that his source, someone with direct knowledge of Foxx’s hospitalization, provided this information.
Benza went on to speculate whether this medical emergency was the underlying cause of Foxx’s recent outburst on set and the subsequent firing of several individuals, suggesting that Foxx may have reached a breaking point due to vaccine mandates." -----------------------------------
Benza, it should be noted, has been a Hollywood reporter for decades, so it's totally possible he got the inside dope.
Hollywood studios - just like virtually all pro sports teams around the world - require a "vaccination" to work. The current SAG/AFTRA contract allows producers to require the clot-shot, er the totally effective and safe covid shot.
Making this theory even more possible is the fact that Netflix produced the movie ("Back In Action"). Netflix has perhaps the strictest covid protocol of any production house. The below quote from Variety:
"In July, Netflix became the first Hollywood studio to set a blanket policy requiring that the casts of all of its U.S. productions be vaccinated, as well as the crew members who come in contact with the performers on its films and shows.
Those rules encompassed everyone working in “Zone A,” which is the new, COVID-era industry term for the parts of a film or television set where actors, directors and other essential crew work."
And in a totally unrelated story, Ray Stevenson's cause of death has still not been announced despite it being nearly 2 weeks since his death.
So to recap, the vaccine is totally safe and you should get your 5th booster immediately.
If you do, can I have your stuff should you suddenly & unexpectedly die from reasons that have nothing, and I mean nothing, to do with the shot?
When he sues the movie company for making him get vaccinated....
How DARE YOU intimate that anyone should be held liable for forcing the use of an utterly unsafe, ineffective, super cool drug who's long term effects are still not known sure to be nothing worth mentioning.
Well another week has gone by and still no word on when he'll be released. The only update is that a rep yesterday told reporters that the reports of Foxx getting a stroke were "wildly" inaccurate, yet gave no other details - including if he's even had a stroke.
Given the fact that he has not spoken or been seen publicly, the potential for bulla is strong.
Meanwhile, Universal Pictures has also pushed back the release date of Foxx's film STRAYS from June 9 to Aug. 18, presumably to give someone time to ADR and/or time to recover enough to promote that film.
Which is looking more and more like wishful thinking. Regardless, I wish him a speedy recovery.
With absolutely no public appearances, no Instagram posts since the first one, which didn't feature him by the way. No updates on his condition, no inspirational videos of him therapy of any kind, nothing besides his publicists to dispel the rumor that the vaccine has caused a problem for him.
8 days since the last post... and no updates or pictures to be found on the net.
Somehow I'm guessing he's not playing pickle ball after all.
Tried to find out when "Back in Action" is going to debut on Netflix, and there's nothing - not even a "later this fall" type of date.
Not announcing a date is very rare for Hollywood which still puts a premium on release dates being announced, then met.
Not to far a stretch to think that the film will never be finished because, even though principal photography wrapped in April using body doubles and stuntmen to fill in for Foxx, most movie's record most or even all the dialogue in post. Only a very few Hollywood films use the dialogue from the set (Quinton Tarantino being one of the few exceptions to the rule).
If Foxx can't speak (or worse), then ADR/looping would be impossible. Foxx way too big a star to try and fake his face using a voice over actor, so the producers are potentially in a very tough jam.
The initial medical event happened in mid-April, yet Foxx remains in seclusion in a hospital as we wrap up the first week of July.
Still no video or photos of him much less live conversation or any updates from doctors. He's been re-cast in his own TV show, missed one movie premiere, and looks to miss another one this month.
Obviously the chances of him walking out perfectly healed are quite small, if not non-existant. The only real question is will he ever leave at all, and who - if anyone - will be sued for what happened.
As detailed above, there's a pretty significant chance that the clot-shot was the direct cause of his condition, and that Netflix made him get it over his objections. But will Foxx (or his family should he die) be willing to sue Netflix and/or Big Pharm for permanently maiming and/or killing him? The same is true for whatever insurance company is involved with any of the productions affected by his absence.
That remains to be seen, bviously, it'll be pretty hard to sweep him under the rug if he (or his family) wants to raise hell down the line.
Yet by this time next week Foxx will have been in a hospital for 3 months, an extraordinarily long time (women giving birth are usually discharged in one day; open heart surgery patients 7-10 days).
