Jamie Foxx has been out of hospital for weeks and has been recuperating at home, his daughter claims.
Corinne Foxx, 29, took to Instagram on Friday denying reports that her 55-year-old father was still in hospital – and even claimed the actor has been active and playing pickleball.
It is still unclear what the actor has been in hospital for, with his family reluctant to release any specific information.
‘Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild,’ Corinne wrote, alongside a report that claimed his loved ones had been ‘preparing for the worst.’
‘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!’
The shock update comes amid conflicting reports about his condition following his recent hospitalization.
Foxx resides in a lavish $10.5 million mansion in Hidden Valley, California.

The movie star, born Eric Bishop, was filming the action-comedy Back In Action with Cameron Diaz in Atlanta, Georgia, in April when he was admitted to hospital although little is known of the intricacies of the situation.
He had believed to be currently seeking treatment in a medical facility in the state undergoing tests – however, his daughter claims he has now been released.
His daughter appeared to be taking aim at a report by the gossip site Radar that claimed his family were ‘preparing for the worst.’
That report mentioned his daughter Corinne and that she had not given any specifics over his current state of health.
Sources claimed to the site that Foxx suffers from high blood pressure and that he was ‘lucky to be alive,’
Last week, sources told Page Six that ‘nothing had changed’ and the actor was ‘still in the same condition’, after his health scare. MailOnline has contacted representatives for Jamie for comment.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, his family posted on his profile said: ‘Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed’ followed by praying hands, heart and fox emojis.’
It’s unclear if Foxx himself made the post. At that point, no further details on his condition had been shared, leading to speculation about how serious his illness is.
