Jamie Foxx’s daughter Corinne shared some good news about her dad, noting that he’s out of the hospital and has even been playing pickleball.
In an Instagram story, she wrote: “Family update: Sad to see the media all over the place. My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recovering. In fact, he was playing yesterday at pickleball! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support. !”
He added: “We also have an exciting job announcement next week!”
The 55-year-old actor was hospitalized in April.
“From the Foxx family: We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, suffered a medical complication yesterday. Thankfully, thanks to quick action and great care, he is on the road to recovery. We know how much he is loved and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time. Much love, The Foxx Family,” said a statement Corinne Foxx released last month; this post appears to have since been deleted.
In an Instagram post earlier this month, Foxx expressed gratitude to fans: “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed,” the post stated.
Foxx won an Oscar for his role as iconic musician Ray Charles in the 2004 film “Ray.”
Earlier this month, actor James Woods shared a personal story about his own experience working with Jamie Foxx.
“When we were filming White House Down, I injured my neck during a stunt. A few weeks later, Jamie and I shot an extended fight scene over several days. I asked him to be careful and he went above and beyond. It was like ballet! He protected me at every turn, while I looked like total chaos. He put my well-being above all other considerations. I had always admired him greatly as an artist, of course, but it was an honor to meet him He is a kind and caring man,” Woods wrote.
