On Tuesday, April 11, the Django Unchained actor was transported to the hospital after an unclear incident, with his daughter, Corinne Foxx, releasing the news to the world.
They wish to share that her father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday, Corinne said in an Instagram post. Fortunately, he is already on his way to recovery thanks to quick action and excellent care. They understand how much he is loved and value one’s prayers. During this difficult time, the family requests privacy. Sincerely, The Foxx Family.
Foxx himself stayed mute, and as the days passed with no fresh information, his followers’ anxiety grew.
It didn’t help earlier this week when one of the actor’s closest friends made a public plea for prayers.
He wants one to continue to keep their beloved brotha @iamjamiefoxx up, whom they all love and care for dearly in their hearts, minds, and prayers!!!! said Charlie Mack, a hip hop figure, film director, and Foxx’s “brother,” on Instagram. They need him back. @iamjamiefoxx, bro, he knows his strength since he is a warrior, strong, and resilient. He is not leaving like that.
He went on to say that a true champion, as he always says, isn’t the one who wins but the one who faces and overcomes hardship. One’s test becomes one’s witness. They can’t wait to welcome one home to rejoice, laugh, and cheer. By Allah, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth! Oh Allah, he stands before you again, humbly requesting that please cure and return their brother @iamjamiefoxx stronger and better than before!!! He has no qualms about appealing and asking for Allah’s gracious healing abilities over their brotha now, in his time, not theirs, for a miracle. He must and shall express his gratitude in advance to the generous and humble servant Kareem Abdullah, alias Charlie Mack. Ameen!
The cause of Foxx’s hospitalization remains unknown; however, a source told in April that he was “awake and alert.They said that he’s OK, thank God. He’s still in the hospital, and doctors are performing tests on him, but he’s awake and alert. They’re keeping an eye on him.
The event happened when Foxx was in the midst of shooting Back in Action, although he was not on site at the time. He was not taken to the medical facility in an emergency vehicle.
Foxx has finally broken his silence after three weeks to thank fans for their love and support. On Instagram, the 55-year-old wrote: “Appreciate all the love! Feeling blessed.”
The actor also took to Instagram to thank Nick Cannon for stepping in on his hosting responsibilities for the next season of Beat Shazam.
Here’s hoping Jamie Foxx’s health improves and he can return to doing what he and we love most.
