The health incident of Foxx did not occur on the film set, and it was not by an emergency vehicle that he was transported to the hospital, despite initial concerns. He eventually broke his silence on May 3, sharing an update on Instagram and thanking his followers for their support. His daughter also gave an update, revealing that he was out of the hospital and recuperating​.

However, the specifics of Foxx’s health concern remained largely undisclosed, leading to widespread speculation and a number of theories about what may have transpired. One such theory was proposed by Hollywood journalist A.J. Benza on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s online show “Ask Dr. Drew.”Benza, citing a source close to Foxx, claimed that Foxx became “partially paralyzed and blind” from a brain clot after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, allegedly under pressure due to his latest film.
