Insider’s Update On Jamie Foxx Stirs Speculation About The Actor’s Recovery
Jamie Foxx’s undisclosed medical condition has emerged as one of the most widely discussed topics of 2023.
In April, Jamie’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, took to Instagram to update fans, about his father’s hospitalization. “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and care, he is already on his way to recovery,” she wrote, expressing gratitude for the prayers and urging for privacy.
Subsequently, a source informed People that Jamie’s condition had improved. “He’s still in the hospital, and doctors are running tests, but he’s awake and alert. They’re keeping him under observation,” the insider disclosed.
In May, Jamie finally broke his silence on Instagram but stayed true to the ongoing theme by withholding any specifics about his illness. “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed,” he wrote. Around the same time, Corinne refuted assertions that her family was “preparing for the worst,” citing her father’s recent participation in pickleball.
“Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating,” she wrote on her Instagram Story on May 12. “In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”
Shortly after Corinne’s statement, TMZ disclosed that Jamie had checked into a specialized rehabilitation facility in Chicago, focusing on stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury rehab, spinal cord injury rehab, and cancer rehabilitation. Jamie’s representatives also dismissed allegations that his condition stemmed from adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Ever since Jamie was hospitalized, numerous unanswered questions persist, and his family has chosen to remain tight-lipped regarding the actor’s medical condition. However, a recent report has now emerged, shedding some light on the situation.
