Jamie Foxx's family is speaking out about reports about the actor's health, four weeks after saying he had a medical problem.
“News from the Jamie Foxx's family: It's sad to see how media runs wild. “My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating,” his 29-year-old daughter Corinne wrote on her Instagram Story on Friday. She also shared a story that said the family was getting ready for “the worst.”
She continued, “In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support. We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too! 😏”
On Foxx's Instagram account on Wednesday, a message said, “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.” The star also wrote “See you all very soon” on his Instagram Story.
Corinne said at the time that Jamie Foxx was “on his way to recovery” because of how quickly he was treated and how well he was cared for. During this update, the Foxx family also thanks fans for their prayers.
On April 21, a source told that the actor's health was still getting better. “He's okay, thank God,” the person said at the time. “He's still in the hospital, where doctors are doing tests, but he's awake and in good condition. They keep checking on him.”
People heard from multiple people that Foxx was getting better as he worked to get better in a Georgia hospital.
Soon after, work on the Netflix movie got back to normal. He hasn't been seen on set since April 10. Foxx was in the hospital, so the stunt double did his stunts and another person stood as the photo double.
On May 5, a person close to the actor told PEOPLE, “Jamie is stable and not in a life-threatening situation right now.”
“Doctors are doing more tests because they want to be sure he will be fine before leaving the hospital,” the source said. Foxx is being told to “keep his stress level down” when he is released from the hospital.
The person also said that the hospital is “the last place Jamie wants to be” even though he needs medical care.
“He has a lot of projects going on,” the person said. “He gets things done. He's smart and driven. What happened to him is bad enough that he needs to stay in the hospital.
