Jamie Foxx is officially out of the hospital — and has been for weeks now, according to his daughter, Corinne, who took to social media this week to finally give fans another update.

On her Instagram, Corinne posted that Jamie Foxx is well on his way to a full recovery, while also taking a jab at the media: “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!” Not to take umbrage with Corinne Foxx’s comment, but if the family was that concerned with speculation from the media (and fans), why not provide information and updates on a more frequent basis? Sure, specific medical details should be kept private, but considering Foxx is a beloved public figure, more facts could have quelled any online rumors and kept news outlets from “running wild.” If we had to guess, the lengthy gaps would only generate more questions…Foxx himself didn’t make his first public statement until May 3rd.

Even still, we’re glad Jamie Foxx is out of the hospital and getting back to normal–if we’re qualifying pickleball as “normal.” Last month, Corinne informed fans, “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time. Much love, The Foxx family.”

While Jamie Foxx was in the hospital, his latest movie, Back in Action, resumed production using a stunt and body double. He was also replaced as the host of Fox’s game show Beat Shazam by Nick Cannon, while Kelly Osbourne stepped in for Corinne as the show’s DJ. No release date has been set for Back in Action, but it will arrive on Netflix later this year or in early 2024.

Now that Jamie Foxx is out of the hospital and back in action himself, what are you hoping to see from him in the future?
