Over a month since Jamie Foxx was hospitalised with a mystery illness, the truth about his condition has finally been confirmed.
It comes after the actor broke his silence on social media earlier this month…
Foxx is best known for his work in movies such as Django Unchained, Dreamgirls and Collateral. The 55-year-old first broke out in Hollywood with his leading role as Ray Charles in the 2004 movie Ray, for which he won an Oscar.
More recently, the actor has turned his skill set towards the behind the scenes film work. He worked as writer and producer for the recent series Alert, as well as Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.
His daughter Corinne Foxx announced the news of his hospitalisation on Instagram.
She said: “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.
“We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”
Foxx has 2 daughters, with Corinne, who shared the news, being the eldest, born in 1994. She is an actress in her own right, having starred in Dollface and Safety.
Foxx also has another daughter who was born in 2009.
Foxx became unwell while filming in Atlanta for the upcoming Netflix film Back in Action with his co-stars Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close.
An insider told CNN in the week after his hospitalisation: “They are running tests and still trying to figure out what exactly happened.”
And then, at the beginning of May, Foxx spoke out for the first time on social media.
“Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed,” Foxx wrote.
He also thanked Nick Cannon, who stepped in to host his show “Beat Shazam” while he’s been away.
“Appreciate ya my boy @NickCannon,” he wrote in his stories, adding: “See u all soon.”
But now, the truth about Foxx’s condition has finally been confirmed…

A source revealed to the outlet that Foxx has been there since the end of April, and is “recovering well.”

She also revealed that her father had even been playing pickleball!
