In an appearance on the PBD Podcast, Mike Tyson accidentally let the cause of Jamie Foxx’s condition slip. “He’s not feeling well. They said [it was] a stroke.” Tyson then clarified, “I have no idea what happened to him.”

Host Peter Bet-David lamented how these health issues can crop up in an instant, saying, “We were at a restaurant in LA, and he showed up and looked really good, and then all of a sudden, you hear the stories about (his hospitalization).”

Since Mike Tyson is a close friend of Foxx, it’s likely he knows what is going on. However, it’s also likely he’s sharing the same rumors that have constantly been circulating regarding the actor’s condition. We honestly won’t know until Foxx himself makes a statement.
