Jamie Foxx says he didn't know if he was 'going to make it through' following illness via MSN


Jamie Foxx is back in front of the camera months after his family announced that Foxx had "experienced a medical complication."

Foxx, 55, who was hospitalized in April, shared a video on Instagram Saturday, updating fans on his "road to recovery" and thanking them for prayers during his journey.

"I went through something that I thought I would never, ever go through," the "They Cloned Tyrone" star said.

Foxx said that although he knows people were curious to see him amid his recovery, "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."

The Oscar winner used humor to dispel rumors that he was blind, paralyzed or a clone, but did not disclose his condition.

"I went to hell and back, and my road to recovery had some potholes as well, but I’m coming back," Foxx declared. "I’m able to work."

The singer also told fans they may see him "burst into tears" on occasion because "it’s been tough, man, I was sick. But now I’ve got my legs under me so you’re going to see me."

The "Unpredictable" singer has maintained a low profile since his family revealed that Foxx had "experienced a medical complication" and "luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery." Recently, he was seen out and about "celebrating summer" in Chicago, per a tweet he posted earlier this month. That day, he was spotted enjoying a boat ride with friends on the Chicago River.
