Boxing legend Mike Tyson appears to have revealed the medical emergency that actor Jamie Foxx recently suffered that landed him in the hospital.
During a recent episode of the PBD Podcast, Tyson, 56, who has been friends with Foxx, 55, for decades, claimed that the “mystery” health emergency was a stroke.
“He’s not feeling well,” Tyson said. “They said a stroke. I have no idea what happened to him.”
The New York Post reported that the facility that Foxx has been receiving treatment at specializes in treating adults with “severe complex conditions,” including stroke recovery.
Foxx was hospitalized on April 12 for what was described at the time as being an undisclosed “medical complication,” according to an Instagram post shared by his actress daughter, Corinne.
Foxx suffered the emergency while in Atlanta shooting his newest film “Back In Action” with costars Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close. Some family members flew in from out of town to be with him shortly after the emergency happened.
“From the Foxx Family: We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” Corinne Foxx wrote. “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. Much love, The Foxx Family.”
No symptoms or possible diagnoses were mentioned in either Corinne’s post or any subsequent reporting — and no indication was given as to how long the “Any Given Sunday” actor might need to remain under a doctor’s care.
