Jamie Foxx in possible grave condition

This is top trending on Twitter. I don’t know how legitimate this is , but the lack of updates in Last few weeks is suspicious.

I thought he just made a public statement yesterday. Are they cloning this man or what? The bizarre drastic change in details daily is very bizarre.

I'm assuming no public statement was made yet as to what his health issue is.

by Anonymousreply 2May 10, 2023 11:39 PM

Did *he* issue a public statement, or did his publicist issue a public statement in his name?

Because the fact that they decided to finish the movie he was making without him, using doubles and CGI, does indicate that this has been extremely serious. The filmmakers didn't expect him to be able to be back at work after a reasonable delay.

Rumor is he may have experienced an aneurysm.

"I find it crazy that nothing solid has come about what exactly is going on. I wouldn't be surprised if literally 1 or 2 family members know and that's it."

It's illegal for anyone to make medical information public without the consent of the patient, or their decison-maker, and Foxx has always kept his private life private so his family seems to be doing what he'd wish. FYI it's also a firing offense for hospital staff... so I bet the hospital management is patrolling the halls with machine guns to make sure the staff knows how important it is to keep their traps shut.

And yes, when a previously healthy man of 55 is in the hospital for a month, it's bad. I'm assuming there's some sort of disability happening, if he hasn't progressed to home or rehabilitation by now.

by Anonymousreply 58May 11, 2023 11:15 PM

R58:- ordinary citizens aren’t subject to health privacy laws, so a family member who hears health information then discloses it isn’t subject to HIPPA. As you say, though, they should respect the wishes of the sick person.

If it was in fact an aneurysm, the end results vary wildly. Some recover rather quickly, some slowly, some have serious complications such as a stroke and even a heart attack, and some get progressively worse and don't make it. Obviously he didn't recover quickly, but hopefully he is on the mend.

by Anonymousreply 60May 11, 2023 11:56 PM

I assume he is on a ventilator and the family chose to see how he progresses. Sometimes they improve but sometimes they progress to brain death, then the organ donation people are required to ask the family if they are interested in donation. That is a very difficult decision to make and sometimes can take a week for the family to decide and then it takes 3 or 4 days to allocate the organs and arrange for transportation for the recovery team or teams. A month is actually pretty normal if the stroke/aneurysm rumors are true.

Last year a coworker age 52 had an aneurysm which then resulted in a stroke. They had her on a respirator for several days hoping she'd get better but her brain started to deteriorate until she was declared brain dead. She had lupus and was taking the medication Azathioprine which has been known to cause bleeding and heighten the risk of an aneurysm in some people.

The are probably not saying anything for one reason and it is not related to HIPPA. If he is cognizant and is the one making decisions it is likely because that is how a lot of the black community—especially men—can be about illness. It's perceived to be demonstrating weakness and subordination.

J. Foxx is in bad condition. As stated, they're finishing the movie *without* him.

Also, Funky Dineva points out: if he were able to, he'd post a video from his hospital bed. ("Hey guys, I had a scare, I've got the best medical team around me, though, and I'll see everybody real soon.) He would be reassuring the financial people that they're going to get a return on investment.

But R73, if any family members choose to release medical information to the public, they have to face the wrath of the person whose confidence they've violated, and the wrath of all the relatives who think the leaker had no business taking someone else's medical history to the public.

The fact that Foxx himself hasn't made an appearance is very worrying. Maybe he really is just private, but most celebrities who are known to have had a medical emergency do what Jeremy Renner did, make a video as soon as they can, telling the public and the entertainment industry that they're still around. The public has short memories, the entertainment industry has far shorter ones, and every day that Foxx is out of the public eye is a day that all the good roles are being offered to other actors. Celebrities make videos from their hospital beds because doing so is a good career move, a good career move Foxx isn't making. So yeah, ('m *very* afraid for him.

He could have had a stroke, and that could be related to genetics, the tendency of middle-aged black males toward high blood pressure, steroid use in bulking up for his upcoming Tyson biopic, or, of course, illegal drug use which for years has been rumored to be rampant with him.

But I'm not sure there's been any mention yet of another possibility: He did not have a medical emergency. The truth is that he behaved in an unacceptable enough way, and enough of the shooting needing him was in the can, that his employers simply decided to exercise their option to remove him from the production. And he had his family put out the "medical complication" story to cover that up. That NYPost story in March, about him having a "meldown" on set concluded with a cryptic but so telling line about how no one in the production "likes Jamie very much right now," or "is very happy with Jamie right now." For that much to leak out means his behavior was pretty bad.

Whether drug-fueled, steroid-fueled, or simply rage-aholic/diva-aholic, or a combination, he could have crossed a line. That is a Netflix production and they're probably buying it from some production company that put together the package. That means there are layers of people above even though he's the big star and gets a ton of kowtowing and leeway. That would help explain why there have been no statements by the director, the top oversight executives, the production company, or by Netflix. Sure, they're trying to protect the movie, but that doesn't account for the raging silence. It's very odd. It means that something pretty bad went down. Either a serious medical issue related to destructive substance use. Or no serious medical emergency, but behavior that crossed a line in a way that they just decided to pull him, and they're keeping mum for HR reasons.

It doesn't matter how big you get or how many awards you win. if you are viewed as a loser or a cripple you're fucked. Viability is critical to careers. Also may be insurance implications and financial ones because he was in the middle of filming and collapsed.

Well, R190, no way is it a coincidence that this "emergency" occurred right after it was reported that skeezy characters were around the set trying to get cash out of Jamie Foxx, something about a Rolex, and the same report indicated he had a "meltdown" on set, demanded firings he probably had no right to demand, and was currently very unpopular with everyone involved in the production. "Druggie" is one of the suggestions that comes to mind reading a report of that kind. Something was up with Mr. Foxx, something not good at all, and it wasn't random that this "complication" occurred hand-in-hand with the behavior and events in that article.

I think that a stroke is by far the strongest possibility here, possibly a hemorrhagic stroke. He's a middle-aged African-American man, which means high odds of blood pressure issues that are resistant to medication (sadly common among AA's), he's a hard-driving Type A personality, he's reportedly been under unusual stress lately, and then there are the whispers about drugs, which would dramatically increase the odds of a stroke if there really was cocaine or meth on board.

And BTW several of those factors would increase his risk of a hemorrhagic stroke, and less can be done about a hemorrhagic stroke than an ischemic one. These days a person can be given "clot-buster drugs" or an endoscopic device can remove the kind of large blockages that used to guarantee death or disability, but less can be done about bleeding in the brain. There are ways to limit the amount of damage done by bleeding into the brain, and to limit the amount of bleeding, but once the blood is in among the neurons nothing can stop it from immediately doing damage.

The thing about a stroke, and I'm generalizing here because there are different kinds of strokes, but since my father was a stroke victim who suffered from hypertension all his life and only had one functioning kidney, but the first 72 hours are critically important to recovery. If there is some physical deficit, that is especially true. I want to say something here. Your 50's are critically important to your healthy. If you have been cavalier and neglectful of developing healthy habits, things can start to go wrong when you're in your fifties, and the wake up call your body sends to you may knock you on your ass. I had a good friend who had a massive heart attack out of the blue. He thought he was fine. He only ever went to the doctor when he got sick. Never had a real physical. Yes he gained weight, yes he only exercised once in a while in great bursts, and he did enjoy going to parties and drinking on weekends. But he always said he was going to do better sometime in the vague future. It caught up to him.

The dark rumor is that he has been HIV positive for years but never got tested and now had developed complications from AIDS. This is why there is zero talk about his condition or what happened and his treatments. Not sure I believe it but that is what people are saying as what happened.

OK MAgazine? Ugh. Look to the degree rumors gain traction, at some point they will tell us something. But whatever they say it will be the minimum. If he really did have a blood clot on his brain that left him paralyzed and blind that would be terrible. My heart goes out to him and his family.

R272, that is utter BS. How can he be HIV poz if he never got tested? do you even check what you write. fucking rubbish.

You have to go for health check ups for insurance purposes for films...you get check ups all the time.

What was the cause of all of the brain clots and aneurysms that were happening to people for decades and centuries before the development of the covid vaccines?

by Anonymousreply 289June 2, 2023 12:19 AM

According to statistics you are 5 times more likely to develop a blood clot from COVID infection than from the COVID vaccine. And you are 8 times more likely to develop myocarditis from COVID infection than from the COVID vaccine.

by Anonymousreply 290June 2, 2023 12:28 AM

r288 well let's see. If you start to show symptoms of AIDS and they are trying to figure out why you are dying...then perhaps they would know you have it, as a medical professional. Saying he has been HIV + for years but refused to get tested is just making an assumption if the end result is he is dying of AIDS-related complications. Perhaps worded incorrectly. The rumor is he has had unprotected sex with men for years and has never ever gotten an HIV test and now has developed complications from being HIV + untreated. Does that satisfy the narrative for you? Its just a fucking rumor anyways. Roy Cohen died of AIDS but refused, even to the end to admit he had it.

So true R296. The daughter seems to be searching for any narrative to distract and spin. She would indeed be signing it from the rooftops

ThInk about it. If you were close to your father, and he was the bread winner, the head of the family, and he was always there for you, healthy active, working every day, with a very lively personality, and then suddenly he collapses, is diagnosed with a stroke or blood clot to the brain, or a tumor, or WTF ever and he has surgery, and he is paralyzed and has to go to a rehab facility, etc. in a matter of weeks, your whole world has been upended and you're just trying to process it and get through it and see about getting your father all the help you can. I don't expect much from his kids. This has to be hard on everyone close to him.

by Anonymousreply 298June 2, 2023 12:51 PM

Ugh I hate that his health crisis will forever be associated with the damn Covid-19 vaccine. That shit was likely started by a hoodrat blogger looking to get clicks online. Black people are blaming the vaccine every time a black man has to go to the hospital now. The man can have high blood pressure, diabetes and not been to a doctor in 10 years and people will still say its the vaccine. And I say this as a black person.

I know his daughter is being cautious, I guess the family is worried about him not being able to work? But Jamie has been wildly successful for a long time. They need to just plan on him retiring so they can tell people what's going on and end the nasty speculations.

by Anonymousreply 299June 2, 2023 1:13 PM

Think about it. Actors at Fox's level have to be insured doing movies. Especially if they are action movies. "Cast and crew insurance reimburses production companies for expenses related to filming delays that are caused by injuries or death to insured artists. Illnesses can also be covered, although this typically requires a medical examination." HIV tests are not mandatory. You might be thinking why would he not get a test? By State law, HIV infection is a reportable condition in California. This requires laboratories, health care providers, and testing providers to report all cases of HIV infection to their local health department. This reporting requirement is necessary to timely monitor current trends in the epidemic and to ensure continued funding by federal and State funding agencies for local HIV treatment and prevention services. It would get out.

The fact they have said nothing about what happened to him, his current condition etc leads to all kinds of speculation. The movie he was filming should be able to cover costs with insurance but NOT if he has HIV or AIDS-related complications and never got tested by the production company. A basic physical would cover anything except maybe cancer but that is not so much an immediate illness.

Not saying any of the rumor about AIDS is true, but the fact they are very silent about what it is may be due to insurance claim reasons.

by Anonymousreply 300June 2, 2023 1:36 PM

I think they're silent because he is in bad shape. They are probably hoping he gets better and then he can decide how much he wants to say. Obviously, since he has personally not released a statement through his manager, or whatever, things do not look good. And all the anti vaxxers out there trying to stir some shit need to get a life. But getting back to Jamie, if he could talk, or Even sit up in a bed and smile to show people he's progressing, that would help dispel some of the rumors. But obviously he can't. I believe he would if he could. Right now, all his family and friends and fans can hope for is that he's getting everything he needs to recover at this rehab facility in Chicago. At some point, he will have to be release to go home and continue some kind of out patient therapy. Personally, I believe the longer he stays in rehab in Chicago, the better it is. That means t here's hope.

They won't be able to keep it quiet too much longer. Think about this. How many people on that movie set knew? He collapsed. He was rushed to the hospital. Certain key people involved with that movie know what happened next. Then his family was notified. Who knows how many people that included? And a few close close friends? People talk to one another. And lets not even think about all the people connected to a hospital or a rehab place who had to know. Personally I think it's a fucking miracle no one has leaked so far. Not saying they would leak directly, but they talk to people or people overhear them and it gets out.

I heard that he had a similar neurological episode when he was a teen. I’m wondering if he has a rare condition that the medical system is unfamiliar with. Even if he is not so nice in “real life” his work is a source of happiness for many people. He has always been portrayed by the press as eccentric. I recall one incident where he was apparently playing a naked basketball game. When asked about it he said “it is for clinical reasons”
