Jamie Foxx Smiles and Waves In First Sighting Since Hospitalization For Mysterious Illness

Jamie Foxx Is 'Totally Fine' Following Health Scare, 'They Cloned Tyrone' Co-Stars Say

Jamie Foxx appears to be in good spirits.

The 55-year-old actor was spotting smiling and waving while aboard a mega-boat on the Chicago River on Sunday afternoon, in photos and videos obtained by TMZ.

The report adds that he was surrounded by some people which are believed to be family members.

This is the first time that Jamie has been spotted in public following a “medical complication” that left him hospitalized in April.

In June, co-stars from his latest film “They Cloned Tyrone” shared a positive update about how the actor is doing. At the L.A. premiere for the film, his producing partner, Datari Turner, said the 55-year-old is doing well. “He’s doing really great. I’ve been with him pretty much the entire time that he’s been, I’ll say, resting up. But John (Boyega) talked to him and Juel (Taylor) talked to him yesterday. He’s doing really, really good,” he said. “Oh he’s fine, he’s totally fine. He’ll be back to work, he’ll be back to work very soon. He’s doing really, really good.”

On the red carpet, actor, John Boyega, echoed the good news. “He’s all good. It’s also about respecting the privacy and seeing him when he gets back out here in his own time. He’s all good, he sounded well and was in high spirits and yeah, man, it was a great conversation to have with him,” he said.

The actor’s daughter Corrine took to her Instagram Story in May to set the record straight about her father’s recovery.

“Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!” she wrote.

The update came after Jamie shared a rare update about his health issue earlier in May.  “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed,” he wrote on Instagram, adding red heart and fox emojis.

Corinne previously confirmed in a now-deleted Instagram post on April 12 that the Oscar winner had suffered a “medical complication” the previous day and was on the mend due to “quick action and great care.”

“We know how beloved he is appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time. Much love, The Foxx Family,” the statement concluded.
