Jamie Foxx has recovered from a severe medical event. For a while, it seemed that he was dying, and apparently, he did have a brush with death. Mr. Foxx went to Twitter to describe his medical ordeal and explain why he didn’t give updates.
“To everybody praying and sending messages, I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back,” Mr. Foxx said in a video on Twitter.
“Oh, I went through something that I thought I would never ever go through. And I know a lot of people were waiting, you know, or wanting to hear updates, but to be honest with you, I just didn’t want you to see me like that, man. You know? I want you to see me laughing, having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, 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.
“And to be honest with you, my sister… and my daughter … saved my life. So 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 kicking in such a way, and y’all know they kept it airtight.”
