First speaking out since being admitted to the hospital, Jamie Foxx claims to have been through “hell and back”

Fans all over the world have been concerned about Jamie Foxx for months. The Oscar-winning actor was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital in April for unclear reasons, and he has seldom been seen since, raising concerns about his precarious condition.

But now that he is speaking up about his hospitalization for the first time, Foxx says he went through “hell and back” and thanks his fans for their support.

The 55-year-old Django Unchained actor underwent surgery on April 11. He had “experienced a medical complication,” according to his daughter Corinne, but the actor himself stayed mute for months.
