Jamie Foxx Credits Sister, Daughter with Life-Saving Support After April Health Scare

Following a period of silence after his hospitalization due to an undisclosed medical emergency in April, renowned actor Jamie Foxx is now sharing updates on his journey to recovery. Speaking out for the first time on social media, Foxx expressed deep gratitude to his fans, supporters, and most importantly, his sister and daughter, whom he credits with "saving his life." Foxx candidly described his ordeal as akin to "going through hell and back." However, he chose not to divulge the specifics of his health scare in his recent Instagram video.

He asserted that he didn't want fans to see him in a state of vulnerability or ill-health. Instead, he preferred them to remember him as they always had, either cracking jokes, partying, or being immersed in his craft, whether on a movie or television show.

Corinne Confirms Foxx's Recovery

The news of Foxx's hospitalization was first relayed by his daughter, Corinne, in April while he was in Atlanta filming for the Netflix movie, "Back in Action". Corinne assured fans that Foxx was already on the path to recovery, but withheld specific details of his health scare.

After media outlets began speculating about Foxx's health, Corinne took to Instagram again in May to confirm that Foxx was out of the hospital, recuperating, and was even playing pickleball. During his period of recovery, Foxx was notably absent from the public sphere, missing high-profile events such as the premiere of "They Cloned Tyrone" in June.

Despite the conspicuous silence on his condition, Foxx quashed circulating rumors of blindness and paralysis, confirming that he was neither blind nor paralyzed. In his video, Foxx emphasized the instrumental role his sister and daughter played in his recovery.

The actor declared, "They saved my life." He further explained, "I cannot tell you how great it feels to have your family kick in in such a way... they protected me, and that's what I hope that everyone could have in moments like these." He also acknowledged the invaluable contributions of medical personnel who helped him during his trying time.

Foxx concluded by expressing his profound love and appreciation for his fans, attributing his successful recovery to their prayers, love, and unwavering support. As he moves forward, he asks his fans to understand if he sometimes breaks into tears, for it's merely a testament to the tough journey he's traversed.

Foxx assured fans they will soon see him back in action, once again a vibrant and active part of the entertainment industry.
