Jamie Foxx has recalled the mysterious illness which left her “disappearing for 20 days”.


More than a year later, Jamie Foxx is opening up about his mysterious health scare that left him in a coma for three weeks.

The Academy Award winner shared the story of his April 2023 illness with a group of people on the streets of downtown Phoenix, Arizona, in a video shared to social media on Monday.

“On April 11 last year, [I had] “I got a really bad headache, I had my son get me Advil. I was gone for 20 days. I don't remember anything,” Fox said in the clip, snapping his fingers.

He added, “So, I'm in Atlanta, my sister and my daughter took me to the first doctor. They refused, gave me a cortisone injection. The next doctor said, 'There's something going on there.' I'm not going to say it on camera.”

Jamie was hospitalized last April after suffering an undisclosed “medical complication” on the Atlanta set of his upcoming Netflix film back in action with Cameron Diaz. Her daughter Corinne Foxx announced the illness on Instagram the following day, noting that she was “already on the road to recovery.”

A month later, Corinne announced that her father had “been out of the hospital for weeks” and was even “playing pickleball.”

Fox, appearing for the first time since his hospitalization, spoke candidly about his experience in his acceptance speech for the Vanguard Award at the Critics Choice Association's Cinema & Television Honors ceremony in December.

Fox said at the time that he “really couldn’t walk” six months ago, adding: “I want to thank everybody. I’ve been through some things, I’ve been through some things.

“I treasure every single minute now – it's different. I wouldn't want to do that to my worst enemy, because it's so hard when everything is about to end … when you see the tunnel. I saw the tunnel – I didn't see the light,” Fox said.
