TMZ obtained photos of Jamie’s loved ones, including daughters Corinne Foxx, 29, and Anelise Bishop, 14, visiting him at an unnaamed facility in Chicago. According to U.S. News, the city is home to several of the country’s top physical medicine and rehabilitation centers. TMZ quotes a source close to the Oscar winner claiming he is “recovering well.” (A rep for the actor did not return Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.) It’s unclear when Jamie arrived, but in an update last week, Corinne said her father has been “out of the hospital for weeks.”
The 55-year-old Back in Action performer was hospitalized in Atlanta on April 11 due to an unspecified medical problem. He was still there four weeks later, according to reports. With the cloak of uncertainty surrounding his status, some outlets speculated about his health. One article suggested that loved ones were “preparing for the worst,” prompting Corinne to speak out on Friday.
“It’s unfortunate to watch how the media has gone wild. My father has been out of the hospital for several weeks, recovering. He was even playing pickleball yesterday! Thank you for everyone’s prayers and support “She revealed in an Instagram story. “We’ll also be making an amazing job announcement next week!”
On Monday, Fox announced that Jamie and Corinne will host We Are Family, a music-themed game show that will launch in 2024. The series will feature non-famous relatives of celebrities performing duets with their hidden famous family members.
Jamie’s immediate work obligations have been canceled or postponed. Earlier this month, Fox announced Nick Cannon will host the sixth season of Beat Shazam while Foxx recovers. Kelly Osbourne is taking over as the show’s DJ for Corinne. Universal Pictures, meanwhile, moved back the release date of Jamie’s film Strays from June 9 to Aug. 18.
