Jamie Foxx expressed his gratitude for the support he's received amid his health struggles.

In May, Jamie Foxx was reportedly hospitalized due to an unknown health emergency. Since the hospitalization, rumors have been swirling surrounding the state of the actor's health. Some rumors even suggested that Foxx was blind or paralyzed. For weeks, Foxx's co-stars and friends were asked about his health status. They would give vague responses and claim that he'd address the public himself when he felt it was time. Yesterday (July 22), Foxx finally hopped on social media, assuring fans that he was doing okay. “First of all, I wanna say thank you to everybody that’s prayed, man, and sent me messages," he said. "I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back.”

He went on to claim that he didn't address his condition sooner because he didn't want fans to see him in a bad state. "I went to hell and back," Foxx explained. In the clip, he also thanks his family members for being with him through the difficult journey, claiming that they "saved [his] life." For obvious reasons, fans were relieved to finally hear from Foxx.

I’ve been sending you lots of love and light and will keep doing that forever.”
