Jamie Foxx’s medical mystery deepens. While reports last week claimed he was steadily improving in hospital, the actor’s daughter spoke out on Friday, saying he had been gone for “weeks”.

Corinne Foxx, who made the only official statement about the actor’s “medical complication” a month ago, shared a positive update about her father. On her Instagram story, the 29-year-old posted a screenshot of an article headlined “Jamie Foxx’s loved ones are reportedly preparing for the worst” and called the report false.

“Sad to see the media go wild. My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks recovering. He even played pickleball yesterday! Thank you for everyone’s prayers and support,” she wrote. “We also have an exciting work announcement next week!”

The Oscar-winning actor suffered an undisclosed medical emergency on April 11. The Foxx family, through Corinne, said in a now-deleted post that Jamie “had a medical complication.” They credited “quick action and great care” for putting him on “the road to recovery”. Last month’s statement continued: “We know how loved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”

For weeks, news outlets including CNN and People to have reported on his hospitalization and that doctors were running tests to determine what was wrong. The actor’s rep did not respond to Yahoo Entertainment’s repeated requests for comment. Many of the actor’s famous friends, including Nick Cannon and Kevin Hart, spoke out, saying he “got better,” but gave no details about what happened.

“I’m lucky to have the relationship that I have with Jamie and to just be able to check on him and stuff like that,” Hart said on the May 2 episode of Logan Paul’s. Impulsive podcast. Referring to Jamie’s family, he added: “They’re close and for reasons he’s about, because Jamie has always been a private person to some degree.”

On May 3, a post on Jaime’s Instagram account thanked fans for their support.

A week ago, a ‘source in the actor’s circle’ reported People, claimed the actor was stable and no longer in “a life-threatening situation.” However, it sounded like he was still hospitalized four weeks after the incident.

“[Doctors] are doing more tests and want to be completely sure he will be okay before letting him leave the hospital, the insider claimed, adding that Foxx was told to “keep his stress levels down” when he is discharged.

The source told People the hospital is “the last place Jamie wants to be”, despite him needing care.

“He has a lot of projects going on,” the insider added. “He gets things done; he’s focused and sharp-witted. What happened to him medically is serious enough to keep him in the hospital.”

Jamie is not rushing back to work. The actor will not be hosting Fox’s upcoming season Defeat Shazam, which began filming last week, when Cannon intervened. Kelly Osbourne takes Corinne’s place as a guest DJ on the show. Jamie’s press tour for Roams being pushed as Universal Pictures pushes the film’s release date from June 9 to August 18 while it recovers.
