Hollywood actor, Jamie Foxx said he went to “hell and back” as he spoke out for the first time since being hospitalized following a mysterious health complication in April.
The Oscar award winning actor, 55, fought back tears as he divulged the “hellish” experience he went through in an emotional video on Instagram Friday night.
“I went through something I thought I would never ever go through,” Foxx said, informing his 16 million followers he’s not “blind” or “paralyzed.”
With teary eyes he admitted that
“I know a lot of people were waiting or wanting to hear an update but to be honest with you, I didn’t want you to see me like that man.
“I want you to see me laughing, having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, or a television show. I didn’t want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through.”
Tho Jamie Foxx didn’t disclose his illness but he noted that he is “on the road to recovery.”
Foxx went on to praise his sister, Deondra Dixon, and daughter, Corinne Foxx, 29, for saving his life.
“To them, to God, to a lot of great medical people, I’m able to leave you this video”.
“I cannot tell you how great it feels to have your family kick in in such a way, and y’all know they kept it airtight, they didn’t let nothing out, they protected me, and that’s what I hope that everyone could have in moments like these. But, I’m coming back, and I am able to work.”
