Jamie Foxx Out Of Hospital “For Weeks” According To Daughter

Jamie Foxx has finally left hospital nearly a month after suffering a medical emergency on set. The news comes from Foxx's daughter, Corinne, via Instagram. "Update from the family: 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!". Foxx was originally hospitalized on April 11 after collapsing on the set of his new Netflix film, Back In Action.

The news comes as something of a surprise, given that the latest reports from "sources close to the situation" indicated the complete opposite. As recently as May 11, outlets were reportedly being told by sources that Foxx's family was preparing for the worst. However, Corinne Foxx's message may point to the media's overeagerness to report on the situation.

Foxx's Hospitalisation Plagued With Conflicting Accounts

Everyone from TMZ to PEOPLE reportedly has a source "close to Foxx" who has been feeding them information ever since he was hospitalized. However, the battle for exclusives has created a confusing and contradictory timeline. Foxx's Instagram posts for the first time since his hospitalization, only for Kevin Hart to say that nothing's changed. One person tells PEOPLE he's in stable condition on May 7, only for Radar Online to claim his family is "preparing for the worst" on May 10.

Additional fuel has been thrown on the fire by the fact that no images of Foxx has emerged. His family has chosen not to release any during updates, including in Corinne's latest post. This has led some fans to question whether his family are attempting to deflect media speculation as Foxx continues to struggle. Regardless, it's wonderful to hear a positive update from someone so close to Foxx. We at HotNewHipHop hope he recovers fully and quickly and that there is more good news to report soon.
