Oscar winner Jamie Foxx shares details of his recent health emergency and the difficult path to recovery in a sincere and emotional video message.
The actor, who was admitted to the hospital in April, thanked his fans for their prayers and well-wishers.
Foxx opened his address to his fans and followed by recognizing the speculation about his health. He admitted that he delayed informing the public because he didn’t want them to see him in such a vulnerable situation.
“I just didn’t want you to see me like that, man,” he explained. I want you to watch me smiling, having fun, partying, cracking jokes, and making a movie.”
Foxx went on to express gratitude to everyone who prayed for him through his difficult moments. “First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who sent me messages,” he said.
I can’t tell you how far it carried me and how far it brought me back.” The actor credited his recovery to the assistance of his sister, Deidre Dixon, and daughter, Corinne Fox, saying, “My sister DJ Dixon, my daughter Corinne Marie, saved my life.”
He also recognized the value of the medical experts who were instrumental in his recovery. “To them, to God, and to a lot of great medical people, I’m able to leave you this video,” he added.
While expressing appreciation, Foxx also addressed the rumors and suspicions that occurred as a result of the absence of information.
“Sometimes, you know, things get out of hand. Some people believed I was blind because of what I got, but as you can see, my eyes are perfect. “They said I was paralyzed, but I’m not,” Foxx said.
In discussing the severity of his medical condition, Foxx stated, “I went to hell and back, and my road to recovery had some potholes as well.”
He did, however, reassure his supporters that he is making progress and would return stronger. “If you see me out from now on, and every once in a while, I just burst into tears, it’s because it’s been tough, man,” the actor said.
I was sick, guy, but I’ve gotten my legs under me now.”
Foxx got an outpouring of love and support from fans, family, and renowned friends, including Kevin Hart, Will Smith, Viola Davis, and LeBron James, in response to his Instagram post.
Finally, Jamie Foxx’s video statement presented an open and personal look at his current health experience.
Despite his difficult rehabilitation, the actor expressed his appreciation to his loved ones and fans for their love and support.
Foxx’s candid and heartfelt testimony serves as a reminder of the strength of support and tenacity in the face of adversity.
