Jamie Foxx: Daughter shares update on actor’s health


Corinne Foxx is sharing an update on the health status of her father, actor-comedian Jamie Foxx.

Earlier this week, reports suggested that Foxx was not recovering well from an undisclosed health challenge.

“His family is now preparing for the worst,” one US-based source said.

However, Foxx’s daughter has taken to social media to denounce the report.


The actress, 29, took to her Instagram Story on Friday to share an “update from the family” regarding the “Ray” actor, 55.

Corinne Foxx shared a screenshot of a news story alleging that the Academy Award winner’s family was “reportedly preparing for the worst,” to which she said, “Sad to see how the media runs wild.”

“My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating,” she continued. “In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!”

Corinne Foxx’s post concluded by teasing, “We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too! 😉.”

Last week, Jamie Foxx broke his silence after he experienced an undisclosed “medical complication” in mid-April.

At the time of her dad’s “medical complication,” Corinne Foxx shared a now-deleted statement saying he was “already on his way to recovery” thanks to “quick action and care.”

Jamie Foxx had been shooting his upcoming film “Back in Action,” which co-stars Cameron Diaz, prior to his health scare.
