Jamie Foxx has received support online after posting on social media for the first time since being hospitalized.
The Oscar-winning actor has been hospitalized for several weeks following a recent “medical complication.”
She shared a note on Instagram saying “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.”
Foxx’s daughter said last month that he was being treated with “extreme care,” but did not say what happened to him.
Corinne Foxx’s original post read: “We wanted to share that my father Jamie Foxx experienced a medical issue yesterday.
“Thankfully, due to quick action and intensive care, he is already on the road to recovery.
“We know how loved he was and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy at this time. Much love, The Fox family.”
The 55-year-old was hospitalized in Atlanta, Georgia while filming Netflix’s Back in Action with Cameron Diaz.
Fox received support in the form of prayer emojis from Friends actor Courteney Cox and singer John Legend.
‘A lot of progress’
Ansel Elkhart, who starred with Foxx in the 2017 film Baby Driver, wrote: “You are the best Jamie, please get well soon. You are a blessing to this world and we need you in it.”
“I’m very fortunate to have the relationship that I have with Jamie and to be able to check in on him and things like that,” Hart added.
Fox took to Instagram to thank actor Nick Cannon for filling in for him as host of Pete’s musical TV game show Pete Shazam.
In a statement, the show’s producers said: “Everyone at Fox Entertainment wishes Jamie continued recovery, and we greatly appreciate Nick’s willingness to jump in and help out this summer.”
