Mike Tyson revealed Jamie Foxx’s health issues may have halted the boxer’s long anticipated biopic once again.
The project, which has been in the works for more than a decade, recently gained traction in the form of a TV movie only to face another hurdle when Foxx suffered an undisclosed “medical complication” last month.
When asked on the “Valuetainment” podcast if he was following “what’s going on with Jamie Foxx,” Tyson said, “He’s not feeling well.”
Host Patrick Bet-David said, “Something’s going on.” The legendary boxer added, “Yeah, they said a stroke.”
When Bet-David asked if Foxx is still involved in the Tyson biopic, Mike gave an equally candid response.

“Well, it was a possibility. I don’t know what’s going to happen now. But, you know, it’s a strong possibility.
“If we don’t know by now, they don’t want us to know,” he responded.

Jamie Foxx’s relatives were seen leaving a medical facility in the Chicago area more than one month after the Oscar winner suffered a mysterious health scare.
While he continues to recover, his game show, “Beat Shazam,” will return to FOX Tuesday with Nick Cannon filling in as guest host and Kelly Osbourne taking over the DJ booth.
Corinne revealed April 12 in a since-deleted Instagram post that Foxx, 55, experienced a “medical complication” the day before, and “quick action and great care” helped guide him toward recovery.
The family has not disclosed Foxx’s medical issue.
“Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed,” he wrote.
Corinne is keeping the family business running, though, and revealed on Instagram, “‘WE ARE FAMILY’ coming 2024! The Foxx family is headed back to our home on @foxtv & we can’t wait for this new show!”
