Jamie Foxx supporters have through some difficult months. While working on the production of his new Netflix movie, Back In Action, the actor was unexpectedly hospitalized in April. It was just the most recent in a long line of difficulties that had impeded manufacturing. Foxx appeared to be both on the edge of death and making a full recovery, which made the hospitalization’s coverage a muddle. His daughter reported in mid-May that he had been released from the hospital for a number of weeks after receiving numerous contradictory reports regarding his condition. But for the time being, Foxx continues to heal alone.
Updates about the actor have been few and far between, with his family seemingly eager to not justify the rampant speculation and source leaking. Meanwhile, a number of Foxx’s celebrity friends have come out to give vague updates or simply send their best wishes to the veteran performer. However, we have yet another source with yet another update, courtesy of PEOPLE.

“He is getting the best care and working hard to recover right now, but he is still not himself,” a source told PEOPLE. Furthermore, the source noted that the actor’s inner circle is still tightly guarding the cause of his sudden hospitalization. “He has the tightest circle around him,” the source explained. Speculation has run wild about what put Foxx in the hospital, including a number of unsavory theories related to the COVID-19 vaccine. Furthermore, particularly incendiary claims made by columnist A.J. Benza on the web show Ask Dr. Drew led to a rep for Foxx speaking out. The spokesperson called the claims “completely inaccurate.”
However, the latest source reveal came just after hours after several people spoke about Foxx at the premiere of They Cloned Tyrone. John Boyega, who stars in the film alongside Foxx, said that he was recently able to speak with Foxx on the phone after several failed attempts in recent weeks. “He finally picked up the phone. Thank you, bro,” Boyega said. “He’s doing well. And then, you know, we just giving him the privacy, and we can’t wait for his return.” He continued: “I gave him the well wishes directly. I gave him all the well wishes. So I’m just gonna be waiting until he comes back out here. So take your time, Jamie. We love you, bro.”
