Actor and singer Jamie Foxx has finally shared the cause of his sudden hospitalization that took place on April 11, 2023. The incident, which occurred while Foxx was filming the Netflix movie "Back in Action" alongside Cameron Diaz, had been shrouded in mystery for months.

Foxx recently opened up about the ordeal during an impromptu conversation with a crowd at a dining establishment in Phoenix. The 56-year-old actor recounted how a seemingly ordinary day turned into a life-threatening medical emergency.

"Look, April 11 last year, I had a bad headache and asked my boy for an Advil," Foxx began, snapping his fingers for emphasis. "I was gone for 20 days. I don't remember anything." He explained that he was in Atlanta at the time and was rushed to the hospital by his sister and daughter after doctors identified something seriously wrong.

The exact nature of Foxx's medical condition remains undisclosed, as he chose not to elaborate on the details. "The next doctor said, 'There's something going on up there,'" he added, pointing to his head. "I won't say it on camera ... but it was serious."

The circumstances surrounding Foxx's hospitalization were kept largely private, with his family and close friends providing only sparse updates. His daughter, Corrine Foxx, initially shared news of his health scare in a now-deleted social media post, stating, "We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday." She reassured fans that he was on the road to recovery, crediting quick medical intervention for his improving condition.

Despite the family's efforts to maintain privacy, speculation and concern grew as weeks passed without detailed updates. Friends like Nick Cannon and Kevin Hart offered snippets of information, hinting at Foxx's gradual recovery.

In early May 2023, it was announced that Foxx would not be participating in the upcoming season of the Fox program "Beat Shazam," further fueling public curiosity about his health status. Corrine Foxx eventually addressed the rumors by posting a detailed update on Instagram, clarifying that her father had been out of the hospital for weeks and was even active enough to play pickleball.

July 2023 marked Foxx's first public appearance since the medical incident. He was seen waving to fans from a boat cruising along the Chicago River, a moment that was both heartwarming and reassuring to his supporters. Shortly after, Foxx released a heartfelt video expressing his gratitude and discussing his journey to recovery. In the video, he addressed false rumors about his condition, stating, "I am not blind, and I am not paralyzed."

By August 2023, Foxx was back on social media, sharing an update alongside a photo of himself. "I finally see the light," he wrote, reflecting on his challenging experience. His return to the public eye continued in December 2023 when he received the prestigious Vanguard Award at the Critics Choice Association's event. The award recognized his contributions to film and television, particularly his role in "The Burial." The audience's standing ovation highlighted the public's admiration and relief at seeing Foxx back in good health.

During his acceptance speech, Foxx spoke candidly about the severity of his health crisis. "I've been through something. I've been through some things. It's crazy, I couldn't do that six months ago. I couldn't actually walk, too." He added a touch of humor, addressing online rumors by jokingly confirming he was not a clone.

By January 2024, Foxx had resumed filming "Back in Action" in Atlanta, signaling a full return to his professional commitments. His journey from a near-fatal health scare to regaining his strength and returning to work has been a testament to his resilience and determination.
