Jamie Foxx update: Out of hospital for weeks, daughter says
Jamie Foxx’s daughter on Friday addressed the rumors about her father's recent hospitalization. Corinne Foxx on Instagram stories wrote that her father has been out of the hospital for weeks and on Thursday was playing pickleball, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Corinne Foxx, who co-hosts the Fox game show "Beat Shazam" with her father, added in her post that they will have "an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”
Oscar winner Jamie Foxx was hospitalized in Georgia on April 11 for a still-undisclosed medical condition. Foxx appeared to break his silence on Instagram last week to reassure his 16.3 million followers that he was aware of their concerns.
In the weeks that followed, conflicting reports emerged about the health of the 55-year-old actor. People magazine last week quoted an anonymous source saying the star “is stable and not in a life-threatening situation now,” with doctors “doing more tests and want[ing] to be completely sure that he will be okay before allowing him to" be discharged.
But an evidently separate source told the gossip website Radar Online Tuesday that, “Jamie’s people are saying he’s doing OK and improving, while doctors try to get to the bottom of his problems — but he wouldn’t be in a hospital this long if he was anything close to OK. … His friends and family are hoping for the best — but preparing for the worst!” Radar also specified he had “collapse[d]” while in Atlanta shooting his Netflix movie "Back in Action,” co-starring Cameron Diaz. People magazine, however, said it had confirmed that the medical episode did not happen on-set, and that Foxx was not transported to the hospital by emergency vehicle.
