Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne, shared some good news about her father, noting that he is out of the hospital and has even played pickleball.
In an Instagram story she wrote, “Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild. 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 added, “We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”
The 55-year-old actor was hospitalized in April.
“From the Foxx Family: We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication 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” a statement that Corinne Foxx posted last month said — that post appears to have since been deleted.
In an Instagram post earlier this month, Foxx expressed gratitude toward supporters: “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed” the post declared.
Foxx won an Oscar for his role playing iconic musician Ray Charles in the 2004 movie “Ray.”
Earlier this month, actor James Woods shared a personal story about his own experience working with Jamie Foxx.
“When we were shooting White House Down, I had a neck injury during a stunt thing. A few weeks later Jamie and I had a protracted fight scene filmed over several days. I asked him to be careful and he went beyond. It was like ballet! He protected me at every turn, while making it look like total mayhem. He put my well-being over every other consideration. I had always greatly admired him as an artist, of course, but I was honored to know him for the kind and caring man he is,” Woods wrote.
