It has been nearly two months since Jamie Foxx‘s family announced that the acclaimed actor had been hospitalized due to a “medical complication” on the set of his upcoming Netflix movie, Back in Action, alongside Cameron Diaz. His eldest daughter, Corinne Foxx, recently provided an update on his health, assuring everyone that he is doing well and even participating in activities like playing pickleball. However, an exclusive report now reveals that the actor is undergoing intense physiotherapy to aid his recovery and regain mobility.
While the specifics of Jamie Foxx’s health condition remain undisclosed, sources claim that the 55-year-old actor has been facing mobility challenges since the incident on April 11 during filming in Atlanta. An insider revealed that Foxx is currently undergoing treatment at a leading physical rehabilitation center specializing in stroke, brain, and spinal cord injuries. The clinic is known for its exceptional physical therapy programs designed to assist individuals with injuries or physical conditions that impede walking. They are adept at teaching people how to walk again.
In May, Corinne addressed the media coverage surrounding her father’s condition, dismissing inaccurate claims that his loved ones were “preparing for the worst.” She clarified that her dad had been out of the hospital for weeks and was in the process of recuperating. However, according to the unnamed source, the actor’s condition is more serious than previously reported. The insider emphasized that Foxx’s presence at the rehabilitation clinic signifies some impairment resulting from the incident but reassured fans that he is receiving the best care possible.
Foxx and his family have chosen to maintain a relatively low profile regarding the specifics of his recent health complications while expressing gratitude for the love and support received from fans and friends. The actor briefly acknowledged the situation on social media on May 3, thanking everyone for their overwhelming love.
Following his hospitalization, production resumed on two of Foxx’s ongoing projects, Back In Action and Beat Shazam, in his absence. Back In Action is an action comedy for Netflix, while Beat Shazam is a game show where Foxx serves as the host alongside his daughter Corinne, who acts as the show’s DJ. Nick Cannon has taken over hosting duties for Beat Shazam with Foxx’s approval.

The versatile actor will star in various action-packed movies, including God Is A Bullet with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Maika Monroe, as well as Tin Soldier featuring Robert De Niro and Scott Eastwood, both set to hit theaters this summer.
