The health of the widely adored star from Disney’s Soul and Marvel’s Spider-Man, Jamie Foxx, has been all over the news as the actor suffered a serious and mysterious illness. Just weeks ago, Foxx faced a dire medical emergency with very few details released to the public, which spurred wild speculation and rumors. With the medical complication keeping him completely out of work, Anti-Vaxers tried to connect it to the effects of the COVID-19 vaccination, claiming it left him blind and paralyzed.

It was serious enough that the Foxx family asked for prayers, but they never specified the cause of his illness. The story about the vaccine blinding and paralyzing Jamie Foxx spread, and then former boxer Mike Tyson suggested it actually may have been a stroke. But Foxx’s representative recently stated the vaccine claims are “completely inaccurate.” New information proves that the rep was telling the truth.

Page Six reported that the star was spotted looking strong while playing a round at Topgolf in Illinois on Saturday and that an eyewitness said Foxx’s swing “was better than the people with whom he was competing.” Jamie Foxx apparently looked normal enough, with the ability to move all of his limbs. The sighting proves that Foxx is not only not paralyzed but certainly not blind either. TMZ clarified that this “Topgolf location is near the physical rehabilitation facility in Chicago,” where Foxx has been on the mend.

Jaime Foxx himself indicated his improving health by tweeting for the first time since his incident. He simply tweeted, “Boat life,” followed by a fox emoji. Then “Celebrating summer with @brownsugarbbn” and “Stay blessed!” Foxx has owned BSB Brown Sugar Bourbon since 2021.

If Jamie Foxx is well enough to be boating in the Chicago River and sipping on some bourbon, it seems like things are definitely looking up in terms of his health.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
