Jamie Foxx’s health has been called “the best-kept secret in Hollywood,” which is not surprising given the conflicting information that has surfaced about it. Many people have been curious about the movie star’s whereabouts ever since his family revealed in April of this year that he had a medical issue and had to be hospitalized. On the other hand, his family apparently visited him in rehab and gave encouraging updates. According to a new unnamed family source who spoke to Page Six, Foxx is “recovering well.” Although the quote and source are quite ambiguous, we can only hope that they are actually a member of his inner circle who is reporting reliable information.
In fact, the same could be said for many other reports on the Texas native’s condition. Moreover, Jamie Foxx’s daughter Corinne had to address media speculation amid claims that the family was “preparing for the worst.” “Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild,” she wrote on Instagram. “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!”

While many are frustrated at the lack of specificity and clarity of these updates, they are coming from the 55-year-old’s family, which is the most important source in this conversation. In addition, their approach to divulging information about him might have effects on his future career, but is nonetheless their decision and must be respected for privacy’s sake. Regardless, no shortage of rumors emerged online over the past few months. One of those came from Mike Tyson, who Jamie Foxx is set to play in an upcoming biopic. Furthermore, the boxer allegedly heard that he had a stroke, although this is unconfirmed.
Meanwhile, we do know that reports suggested that he was in a Chicago facility undergoing treatment and care. Also, a whole slew of projects are on the table for Foxx this summer. First, there’s his film God Is A Bullet, his Netflix flick They Cloned Tyrone, and his voice acting in the Will Ferrell comedy Strays. Meanwhile, his action-comedy with Cameron Diaz, Back In Action, is in production limbo.
