Jamie Foxx's daughter says actor's been 'out of the hospital for weeks' after medical emergency


Jamie Foxx's medical mystery deepens. Although reports last week claimed he was steadily improving in the hospital, the actor's daughter spoke out on Friday and said he's been out for "weeks."

Corinne Foxx, who issued the only official statement about the actor's "medical complication" one month ago, shared a positive update about her father. On her Instagram Story, the 29-year-old posted a screenshot of an article with the headline "Jamie Foxx's loved ones reportedly preparing for the worst" and called the report false.

"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 wrote. "We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!"

The Oscar-winning actor suffered an undisclosed medical emergency on April 11. The Foxx family, via Corinne, said in a now-deleted post Jamie "experienced a medical complication." They credited "quick action and great care" for putting him on "his way to recovery." Last month's statement continued, "We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time."

For weeks, news outlets including CNN and People have reported on his hospitalization and that doctors were running tests to determine what was going on. The actor's rep has not returned Yahoo Entertainment's repeated requests for comment. Many of the actor's famous friends, including Nick Cannon and Kevin Hart, spoke out and said he was "getting better," but did not give any specifics as to what happened.

"I'm very fortunate to have the relationship that I have with Jamie and to be able to just check on him and stuff like that," Hart said on the May 2 episode of Logan Paul's Impaulsive podcast. Referring to Jamie's family, he added, "They're being tight and for reasons just about where he is, because Jamie's always been a private person to a certain degree."

On May 3, a message posted to Jaime's Instagram account thanked fans for support.
