Since being admitted to the hospital three weeks ago for a medical issue, Jamie Foxx has kept his fans in the dark. He has now broken his silence with his first update.
On Tuesday, April 11, the Django Unchained actor was brought to the hospital after an unclear incident. His daughter Corinne Foxx announced the news to the public.
In a message on Instagram, Corinne stated, “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, encountered a medical problem yesterday.
“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. Much love, The Foxx Family.”
Foxx himself stayed mute, and as the days went by with no new information, his fans’ concern grew.
Early this week, one of the actor’s closest pals issued a public plea for prayers, which did little to assist the situation.
Charlie Mack, a hip hop figure, film producer, and a “brother” to Foxx, wrote on Instagram: “I need you all to constantly keep our beloved brotha @iamjamiefoxx up whom we all love & care for dearly in our Hearts, Minds & Prayers!!!! We need you back Bro @iamjamiefoxx you’re fighter, strong & resilient so I know your fortitude. Your not going out like that.
“As I always state a true champion isn’t the one that wins, it’s the one that meets & overcomes adversity!! You’re test becomes your testimony!! We all can’t wait to receive you back home to celebrate, laugh with and applaud you!!”
He continued. “With the mercy from Allah The Creator of the Heavens & Earth!!! Oh Allah I come before you yet once again humbly asking please heal & restore our brotha @iamjamiefoxx stronger & better than before!!! I have absolutely no shame in asking pleading & begging for your merciful healing powers over our brotha now in your time not ours for miracle. I must & will thank you in advance your gracious humble servant Kareem Abdullah aka Charlie Mack Ameen!”
Although a source did claim that Foxx was “awake and alert,” the reason for his hospitalization is still unclear.
“He’s OK, thank God,” they said. “He’s still in the hospital and doctors are running tests but he’s awake and alert. They’re keeping him under observation.”
Despite not being on set at the time of the hiccup, Foxx was filming Back in Action at the time of the incident. And according to People, he was not driven to the hospital in an emergency vehicle.
After remaining silent for three weeks, Foxx has now spoken out to thank the public for their love and support. On Instagram, the 55-year-old wrote:
“Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.”
The actor also made a shout-out to Nick Cannon on his Instagram story for stepping in to host the upcoming season of Beat Shazam.
Foxx wrote: “Appreciate ya my boy @nickcannon. See u all soon.”
Let’s hope Jamie Foxx’s health keeps getting better so he may resume the activities he and we both love most.
