A sigh of relief has been let out now that fans have been reassured that Jamie Foxx really is on the mend from a serious health setback. Across social media, a flood of messages can be viewed less than 24 hours after the A-list actor shared his first video update, where he spoke directly to his supporters about his recovery.
The Friday (July 21) update, which marked his first time speaking on camera since the April health complication, amassed more than 1 million likes and nearly as many comments. The They Cloned Tyrone star made certain to give a special shoutout to his daughter Corinne Foxx and his sister Deidra Dixon for maintaining his privacy throughout the months despite growing speculation about his ailment. “I cannot tell you how great it feels to have your family kick in in such a way, and y’all know they keep it airtight; they didn’t let nothing out. They protected me,” Jamie said.
Fans who had been anticipating hearing directly from Jamie expressed joy as they found consolation in his latest health update. Several comments included remarks about prayers for healing being answered, and others simply sent love to the beloved talent. Some of the reactions can be seen below.
More than a few people also applauded Corinne and Dixon for respecting the Grammy Award winner’s privacy when much of the public pushed for details about his hospitalization and condition.
As previously reported by REVOLT, Corinne, 29, broke the news of his medical emergency in April. In May, she also hit back at reports that the family was preparing for the worst. It was then that she revealed he had been out of the hospital for weeks. Additional details about his recovery were made public when it was disclosed that he was undergoing rehabilitation at a Chicago facility.
Jamie also used his first address to fans to clear the air surrounding claims that he was blind, possibly paralyzed, and even replaced with a clone. He jokingly reassured people that he has full mobility of his limbs and that conspiracies of a lab-made version of him were not real.
