Jamie Foxx addresses fans for the first time since hospitalization in a new video

Jamie Foxx is finally ready to talk about his recent health scare.

The Oscar winner hasn’t made a public appearance since being hospitalized with an undisclosed “medical complication” in April, though his daughter did reveal he was released from the hospital in May. Since then, fans have been patiently waiting for a more concrete update on Foxx’s recovery process. Foxx remained in the public eye due to his role in ‘They Cloned Tyrone’ but was unable to promote the Netflix movie due to his condition.

In a video posted on his Instagram account On Friday night, Foxx opened up about her recent health issues. The actor and musician thanked his fans for supporting him through his health problems and explained why he chose to keep a low profile.

“First of all, I want to say thanks to everyone who prayed, man, and sent me messages. I can’t even begin to tell you how far she took me and how she brought me back. I went through something that I thought I would never have to go through,” Foxx said. “I know a lot of people have been waiting, they wanted to get updates. But, to be honest with you, I didn’t want you to see me like this, man. You know, I want you to see me laughing and having fun, partying, joking, making a movie or a tv show. , Corinne Marie, they saved my life. So to them, to God, to a lot of great doctors, I can leave you this video.

Foxx’s hospitalization halted production on “Back In Action,” the upcoming comedy in which he stars opposite Cameron Diaz. But Foxx has reassured fans that he’s healthy enough to get back to work and complete the film.

“By keeping quiet, sometimes things get out of hand. People say what I have. Some people said I was blind, but as you can see eyes work,” he said. “But I went to hell and came back. And my road to recovery had potholes too. But I’m coming back and I’m able to work. And if from now on you see me outside and every now and then I burst into tears it’s because it was hard, man. I was sick, man. But now I have my legs underneath, so you will walk me out.
