In a heartfelt and emotional video posted on his Instagram on Friday night, Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx opened up about his recent medical emergency and the challenging journey of recovery that followed. Foxx had been shrouded in mystery since April when he was reportedly hospitalized due to a "medical complication" that kept him in the hospital for several weeks.
While the nature of his condition remains undisclosed, Foxx took the opportunity to express his gratitude to all those who offered prayers and messages of support during his trying time. "I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back. I went through something that I thought I would never, ever go through," the actor revealed in the video.
Throughout his recovery, Jamie Foxx deliberately kept a low profile, staying away from the public eye to maintain privacy. He explained, "I just didn't want you to see me like that. I want you to see me laughing, having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, a television show. I just didn't want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through."
The actor expressed immense gratitude to his sister, Deidra Dixon, and his daughter, Corinne, for their unwavering support during this challenging period. They played a significant role in shielding him from the media and preserving his privacy, although their silence led to various speculations and unfounded rumors.
Addressing the erroneous claims that circulated during his recovery, Foxx clarified, "Some people are saying I was blind, but as you can see, the eyes are working just fine. They said I was paralyzed — I'm not paralyzed. But I did go through… I went to hell and back. My road to recovery had some potholes as well, but I'm coming back, and I'm able to work."
In a candid moment, Foxx confessed to the emotional toll of his ordeal, "I know they talk about people crying on videos — you can do a take two — but I'm not gonna do a take two. It is what it is. If you see me out from now on and every once in a while I just burst into tears, it's because it's been tough, man. I've been sick, man. But now, I've got my legs under me, so you're gonna see me out."
Ending on a positive and promising note, the actor reassured his fans, "I just want to say that I love everybody, and I love all the love that I got… I am on my way back."
Foxx's initial post in early May, which simply stated, "Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed," marked the beginning of his communication with the public about his health.
Recently, Foxx has been spotted enjoying summer activities, including his love for golf and boating. Notably, he was praised for rescuing a woman's purse in Chicago, showing his kindness and heroism amid personal challenges.
In addition to his recovery, Foxx has exciting projects on the horizon. His most recent release, "They Cloned Tyrone," a sci-fi Blaxploitation homage, hit Netflix on Friday. The actor also hinted at "big things coming soon" while posing beside a gold race car, and reportedly, he is in Las Vegas working on a campaign for sports betting company BetMGM throughout the upcoming football season.
As Jamie Foxx continues to make progress on his road to recovery, fans and well-wishers eagerly anticipate seeing the talented actor return to the screen and showcase his undeniable charisma and talent once more.
