Holy Shit, The Internet Had No Idea That Jamie Foxx's Real Name Isn't Jamie Foxx

It's something completely different.

Surely you know Jamie Foxx? He's an Oscar-winning actor, Grammy Award–winning singer, and overall superstar.

And because we know him as Jamie Foxx, it's hard to imagine that he could potentially have ANOTHER NAME...a ~real~ name.

Well, there you have it! You're welcome.

When you find out #JamieFoxx isn't even his real name?

Bye!
