Jamie Foxx is back in action and on a boat three months after being hospitalised due to an unspecified “medical complication”. The Oscar winner can be seen chatting to supporters and waving to them from a boat on the Chicago River in a video that TMZ got over the weekend. Foxx tweeted on Sunday, “Boat life,” before promoting his bourbon company and adding the phrase “Stay blessed!” Foxx appeared to be on board with a number of other guests.
Since his lengthy hospitalisation, this was Foxx’s first time being seen in public. He wrote, “Appreciate all the love!!!” while thanking supporters for their well wishes at the beginning of May. On his Instagram page, he said, “Feeling fortunate. Days later, Radar Online published an article in which it said that Foxx’s closest friends and family were “hoping for the best” but “preparing for the worst,” and that he had not yet been released from custody. Foxx’s daughter Corinne Foxx shot off the rumours by revealing one of her father’s interests during his rehabilitation. “Family update: It’s sad to watch how the media is out of control. For many weeks, my father has been recovering outside of the hospital. Indeed, yesterday he was playing pickleball,” she said on her Instagram story. “I appreciate the prayers and help of everyone,”
Foxx’s oldest child broke the first news of his emergency. “We wanted to let you know that yesterday, my father, Jamie Foxx, had a medical issue. Fortunately, because of prompt action and excellent treatment, he is already making progress towards recovery, according to an April 12 Instagram post that has since been deleted. “We are grateful for your prayers and are aware of how loved he is. The family requests discretion at this time.
At the time of his medical issue, Foxx was in Atlanta filming Back in Action, a Netflix comedy he co-starred in with Cameron Diaz (who was playing her first leading part in a major motion picture in over ten years). He was also getting ready to film the sixth season of his Fox game programme Beat Shazam (Nick Cannon has temporarily taken his spot). Foxx will next be seen in Netflix’s They Cloned Tyrone, which premieres on Friday, June 14 and stars John Boyega and Teyonah Parris.
