Jamie Foxx Got Shermed Up In College… and He Has Flashbacks From Getting Wet?!

- By Bossip Staff

Recently, Jamie was in an interview and divulged that back in his drug-ee college days he got “wet” and had to ride it out.

Jamie Foxx credits a college pal with saving his life when he was left in a near-comatose state after his drink was spiked with the hallucinogenic drug PCP. The Oscar-winner was studying music at the United States International University as a teenager and was enjoying a dorm room party when he started to feel strange. He quickly realized his drink had been spiked by an acquaintance, and his senses began to shut down as the drug took hold. Foxx’s quick-thinking pal soon realized his dilemma and came to his aid, rushing him to a nearby hospital to try and flush the drug out.

But despite making a full recovery, the Ray star suffered severe flashbacks for months, leaving him terrified and paranoid. He explains, “I was drinking whiskey and it didn’t taste funny, so I had no idea. It took about 15 minutes and I knew something was wrong. I said to my roommate, ‘Something is going on, and I don’t know what it is, but I’m going to ride it out. “That was the last thing I said, and then I was almost in a coma and I couldn’t move, couldn’t talk, couldn’t even say, ‘Take me to a hospital.’ My friend could see something was badly wrong and he took me to the emergency room. ” He stayed with me. Then he took me back to the dorm and I was afraid of the dark and he would talk to me every night and calm me down and say stuff like, ‘You’re ok, the demons aren’t real.’ He saved my life.” It was only after the event that Foxx found out Pcp – a hallucinogenic which prevents the body and brain from working in sync – stays in the body forever, and he still fears haunting flashbacks more than 20 years later.

He adds, “I read up on Pcp after it happened. It leaves a fingerprint and you can’t get it out of your system. It happened to me when I was 18 and I had 11-months of harsh flashbacks, and then when I was 26, and another when I was 32, and that was the last one. But I always worry about it coming back. You’re afraid of the dark, afraid of things you see on television, you feel that things are coming at you. I felt paranoid, and paranoia is craziness. It’s not good.” »

PCP is one of the most serious and deadliest drugs out there. No wonder Jamie is so wacky and zany. Besides, to rock a curl like the one we have pictured up top is usually a sign that someone has gotten wet. SMH

    That’s crazy, why would a man drug another man unless he wanted to harm him some kind of way. That’s sad. I hope Jaime will be alright.

    I didn’t know PCP was that serious.

    Me either. I am going to let google be my friend and research. I tell everyone to either carry your drink with you or get a new one if you left it for one second(I don’t care if it’s water). Trust no one because some ppl like to see other ppl trip and will slip a “mickey” in a minute. Sick ppl in the world.

  • Mock Rock Star

  • Role Play

    Jamie is blessed to have come out OK. I know a young man, from college, that never quite regained his mind after his soda was spiked at a party. Sure hope it wasn’t his roommate who actually did it to him. College buddies will do a lot for a laugh. Moving forward, someone may need to advise Jamie to stay away from roles like the one wherein he recently played a schizophrenic man. I heard he had a really difficult time with it. Hard on the mind roles like that could easily trigger him into to having flashback.

    Wow. this article just answered a lot of my questions concerning Jaime….. He’s lucky though, cuz many people are institutionalized right now, because of the after effects of PCP….
