Jamie Foxx Reveals Details of Mysterious Illness and Celebrates His Daughters’ Support

Jamie Foxx, the Oscar-winning actor known for his roles in “Ray” and “Django Unchained,” recently opened up about the mysterious illness that led to his hospitalization last year. In a candid video shared on TikTok, Foxx recounted the harrowing experience that began with a severe headache on April 11, 2023. “I had a headache, asked my boy for an Advil,” Foxx said. “I was gone for 20 days. I don’t remember anything.”

The actor’s health scare, described as a “medical complication” by his daughter Corinne Foxx, left him out of the public eye for several months. Corinne, who has been a constant support for her father, informed fans via Instagram about the situation, emphasizing the quick action and excellent care that helped her father on his path to recovery. Jamie later credited his sister Deidra Dixon and Corinne for saving his life, expressing profound gratitude for their support during his ordeal.

Foxx’s mysterious illness and subsequent recovery journey have been marked by his determination and resilience. During a recent encounter in downtown Phoenix, captured on video, he explained that his sister and daughter took him to a doctor who administered a cortisone shot, often used to treat inflammation. Another doctor later indicated that there was a more serious issue at play, pointing to Foxx’s head as he recounted the doctor’s words.

Throughout his recovery, Foxx has maintained a low profile, choosing to share updates on his own terms. In July 2023, he posted an emotional video on Instagram, describing his journey as a trip “to hell and back” and thanking fans for their prayers and well wishes. “You’re looking at a man who is thankful… finally starting to feel like myself,” he wrote. Foxx also revealed that he chose to stay out of the public eye because he didn’t want his fans to see him in a vulnerable state, with tubes running out of him.

Despite the challenges, Foxx has gradually resumed his professional activities. He returned to host the musical game show “Beat Shazam,” where he works alongside his daughter Corinne, who serves as the show’s DJ. Corinne expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to work closely with her father, highlighting how it allowed them to spend valuable time together during his recovery.

Foxx’s daughters have played a significant role in his life and recovery. He shares his eldest daughter Corinne with ex-partner Connie Kline and his younger daughter Anelise with ex Kristin Grannis. Corinne, born on February 15, 1994, has followed in her father’s footsteps, pursuing a career in acting and co-hosting “Beat Shazam” with him. Jamie often praises Corinne for her support and dedication, calling her “the most supportive dad in the world.”

Anelise, Foxx’s 15-year-old daughter, has also been a source of joy and inspiration for the actor. Recently, Foxx shared photos and videos on Instagram, cheering Anelise on at her volleyball game. His enthusiasm and pride for his daughter’s achievements were evident as he posted action shots and supportive messages.

In a 2017 interview with PEOPLE, Foxx reflected on raising his daughters in Hollywood, expressing immense pride in their accomplishments. He highlighted Corinne’s college graduation and Anelise’s athletic prowess, noting her skills in basketball, soccer, and flag football.

Foxx continues to recover and return to the spotlight, his daughters remain his biggest supporters and advocates. Their unwavering love and dedication have been instrumental in his journey, showcasing the strength of family bonds in times of adversity.
