Jamie Foxx suffered an undisclosed health scare a month ago and is reportedly still hospitalized in Atlanta.
His daughter, Corinne Foxx, revealed in a since-deleted Instagram post on April 12 that Foxx, 55, experienced “medical complications” the day before and that “quick action and careful management” helped him recover.
The family has not disclosed Foxx’s medical issues.
Foxx shares ex Connie Kline and Corinne, 29. The “Ray” star also has a 14-year-old daughter, Anneliese Bishop, with his ex Kristin Granis.
Foxx broke her silence last week with a social media post thanking her fans for their support.
Oscar and Grammy winners didn’t include photos of themselves, instead sharing text-only posts.
“Thank you for all the love!!! I feel blessed,” he wrote.
Foxx also thanked Nick Cannon for playing the host of Fox’s “Beat Shazam”. Cannon will host the sixth season and Kelly Osbourne will be in the DJ booth for Foxx’s daughter Corinne.
“‘Beat Shazam’ has been an unwritten mainstay of the Fox schedule for six seasons,” said a statement shared by the show. “To keep game show fans from missing out on the fun this season, Nick Cannon has offered to guest host for his friends Jamie and Corinne Fox. Kelly Osbourne will be the guest DJ.
“Everyone at Fox Entertainment hopes Jamie is recovering and very much appreciated Nick’s willingness to come over and help this summer.”
A source told People magazine that Foxx is “stable” and recovering from an undisclosed health scare.
An insider said, “Jamie is stable and is not currently in a life-threatening condition.”
“[The doctors] are doing more tests and want to be absolutely sure that he will be fine before allowing him to leave the hospital.”
The source added that the hospital is “the last place Jamie wants to be” while acknowledging that Foxx still needs treatment.
“First he’s learning how to sync his phone with his #IntelEvo laptop. Next he’ll be editing photos by himself. Baby steps, @iamjamiefoxx. Baby steps. #ProudDaughter,” she said.
Foxx’s friend and fellow comedian Kevin Hart confirmed that Foxx was on the road to recovery.
“The good thing is he’s getting better at things,” Hart said on the “Impulsive” podcast.
“You can see and feel everyone’s prayers, everyone’s love, energy, everyone. So in this case, the guy just wants to get out of his situation and go home.”
“As far as I know, there’s been a lot of progress. My love, rapport and energy go out to her. She needs it. She needs it.”
Several of Foxx’s famous friends, including Charles E. Allston aka Charlie Mac, offered their support on social media, including praying for the “Django Unchained” actor.
“I must continue to hold my dear brother @iamjamiefoxx whom we all [love] and cherish with our hearts, minds and prayers!!!! We need our brothers back again,” he wrote on Instagram. .
“Your [sic] test becomes your testimony!! We all can’t wait to go home to congratulate you, laugh together and appreciate you.”
Actor Martin Lawrence appeared on “Extra” last month and expressed similarly positive sentiments about Foxx. , He is not only the best entertainer but also a good human being.”
Foxx’s medical issues delayed the last day of filming for “Back in Action”. Reportedly, the production staff in Atlanta began using a stand-in for Foxx on set after she closed for the day.
Another scene scheduled for later that weekend was also canceled, reportedly due to “production changes”.
Filming in London and Atlanta through September, the film marks Cameron Diaz’ return to the silver screen following her last role with Fox in 2014’s “Annie.”
Diaz and Fox also appeared in the 1999 football film “Any Given Sunday”.
