Oscar-winning American actor Jamie Foxx is recovering from an undisclosed medical emergency, according to his daughter and publicist on Friday.
The 55-year-old actor, who was at the time filming a Netflix project in Georgia, was transported to a hospital there last month.
Since then, no information on his health has been provided, which has sparked some speculation that the “Django Unchained” star’s condition may be worsening.
But in a Friday Instagram post, Corinne Foxx dispelled those allegations.
Sad to watch how the media is out of control. My father has been recovering at home for several weeks. In fact, yesterday he was playing pickleball!” she wrote.
The news was confirmed to AFP by Foxx’s representative without any other information.
Jamie Foxx, an actor, comedian, and Grammy Award-winning singer, received an Academy Award nomination for “Collateral” in exactly the same year he also won an Oscar for the musical biopic “Ray,” which was about Ray Charles.
Recently, he was in Georgia filming “Back in Action,” a movie with Cameron Diaz.
Corinne Foxx said her father had “experienced a medical complication” in her initial tweet on April 12 but that “due to quick action and great care he is already on the way to recovery.”
Jamie Foxx sent a brief note on the social media website last week that simply read: “Appreciate all the love!!! I feel blessed.
