After being urgently hospitalized a month ago, American actor Jamie Foxx has spoken out for the first time. In a recent Instagram post, Foxx expressed his gratitude towards the outpouring of love and support he has received from fans.
"Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed," Foxx wrote, accompanied by emojis of praying hands, a red heart, and a fox.
Nick Cannon Steps in as Guest Host
In a separate post, Foxx publicly thanked Nick Cannon, who took over as the host of his hit show "Beat Shazam." The actor took to social media to express his appreciation, writing, "Appreciate ya my boy @NickCannon.
See you all soon." The show's Instagram account also announced that Kelly Osbourne will be filling in as the DJ. The statement read, "This season, not wanting fans of the game show to miss a minute of the fun, Nick Cannon has offered to fill in as guest host for his friends, Jamie and Corinne Foxx.
Kelly Osbourne will be filling in as DJ."
Medical Complications and Speculation
The public is still unaware of what exactly happened to the popular actor, with his family only reporting that he was suffering from "medical complications." His daughter, Corinne, revealed that her father was rushed to the hospital in mid-April due to a "medical complication." She wrote on Instagram, "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." A source close to Foxx revealed that the actor did not respond to stimuli for a while and that doctors had to revive him at one point.
The source stated that Foxx has high blood pressure and that doctors believe he is lucky to be alive. There were also rumors that Foxx collapsed on the set due to poor relationships with his colleagues, particularly Cameron Diaz.
Sources from the set of the movie "Back in Action" claimed that Foxx had outbursts on the set due to a lack of attention, leading to his breakdown and a clash with Diaz. Diaz has since announced her retirement from acting after the project's completion.
Jamie Foxx is on his way to recovery and is grateful for the love and support from his fans and colleagues. Despite speculation, the exact reason for his hospitalization remains unknown and the family has asked for privacy during this time.
