Jamie Foxx Family Member Reveals Truth About Health

The whereabouts of acclaimed actor Jamie Foxx have become a perplexing mystery in Hollywood. The 55-year-old Oscar winner, known for his versatility and charisma, has been absent from the public eye since encountering a “medical complication” while filming the Netflix action comedy “Back in Action” in Atlanta, Georgia, on April 11.



Since then, there has been minimal news about Foxx’s condition. The only update came from his older daughter, Corinne Foxx, who shared a statement on her Instagram the following day. The statement assured fans that Foxx was already on the road to recovery thanks to prompt action and excellent care. The family requested privacy during this time and expressed gratitude for the support and prayers they had received.

While a family member has confirmed to Page Six that Foxx is recovering well, concern is mounting within the entertainment industry about the impact of the ongoing silence on his future career. Additionally, the fate of his upcoming Netflix movie, “Back in Action,” remains uncertain in light of the situation.

Foxx has not been seen in public since before the medical emergency occurred. In early May, his Instagram account posted a brief message expressing appreciation for the love and blessings received. However, the lack of substantial updates has left fans and industry insiders eager for more information.

“We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” the statement said. “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.”


It is known that Foxx has been recuperating at a specialized clinic in Chicago that focuses on stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury rehabilitation, spinal cord injury rehabilitation, and cancer rehabilitation. While former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson claimed that Foxx had suffered a stroke, this information has not been officially confirmed.

Foxx’s youngest daughter, Annalise Bishop, along with her mother Kristin Grannis, has been seen visiting him at the rehab center. Corinne, Foxx’s elder daughter, mentioned on May 12 that her father had been well enough to play pickleball, indicating signs of progress in his recovery.

Despite these occasional glimpses into Foxx’s situation, his representatives have refrained from providing any new information, maintaining a tight-lipped approach. As fans and industry professionals eagerly await updates on Foxx’s health and future endeavors, the concern and curiosity surrounding his condition persist.
