Jamie Foxx is Recovering After Facing a “Medical Complication”

Oscar-winning star Jamie Foxx is on the road to recovery – but what happened to him exactly?

The actor’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, has shared a statement on social media on behalf of the Foxx family, updating fans on a recent “medical complication” her dad experienced. While she didn’t go into details about the exact medical complication, Corinne is asking for privacy as her dad’s health improves:

“Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”

Sharing a second update, Corinne explained that Jamie is now recovering well, despite media headlines claiming otherwise. (One of them claimed his family was “preparing for the worst.” This was then picked up by multiple news outlets, understandably creating a Twitter-storm of concern! The hashtag #PrayersForJamie even started trending. We won’t be sharing the link to the article here because there’s no need to send more traffic their way – but it’s easily searchable on Google.)

“Sad to see how the media runs wild,” the statement shared by Jamie’s daughter, actor Corinne Foxx, on her Instagram stories reads. “My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support.”

She adds, “we have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”

Jamie, who is 55, had been filming his new movie  with Cameron Diaz before he ended up in hospital. It’s due to be released in 2024.
