Last Updated 2 weeks by Amnon J. Jobi | Amnon Front Page

Jamie Foxx is opening up about his health scare last year in which the actor and singer said he asked for an Advil because of a headache and woke up 20 days later with no member of what happened.

In a clip posted on X, Foxx can be seen speaking to a small group of people in downtown Phoenix about his experience that landed him in the hospital.

“April of last year, I had a bad headache,” Foxx said. “I asked my boy for an Advil.”

Foxx then snapped his fingers and told the crowd, “I was gone for 20 days…I don’t remember anything.”

“So they told me, I’m in Atlanta, and they told me, my sister and my daughter took me to the first doctor,” Foxx continued, saying that the doctor ended up giving him a cortisone shot.

“Next doctor said, ‘Something is going on up there,’” Foxx added as he pointed to his head.

Foxx did not want to say what exactly the doctor said.

“Yeah, I don’t want to say on camera, but it was…,” he added as he trailed off.

Foxx recently promised to open up about what he went through a little more than a year ago.

“I’m so thankful and I get emotional because it’s beyond the scope,” Foxx said during an acceptance speech. “I had some people in my life that really made sure I was here because it was dire straits.”

“I take things differently now because you just don’t know,” he added. “Everybody wants to know what happened and I’m gonna tell you what happened but I got to do it in my way.”

“I’m going to do it in a funny way. We are going to be on stage,” Foxx continued. “We are going to go back to the stand-up roots. If you want to have a good time and laugh … come see me when we go take this thing out.”

At the time, the comedian said that his upcoming special would have some things “people will love” and things that are guaranteed to “pull at your heart string.”

Since the actor was hospitalized in April 2023, very little has been released as to what the health scare was he had to deal with. His daughter, actress Corrine Foxx, first announced the news on Instagram.

In Corrine’s original post, she wrote, “From the Foxx Family: 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.”
