Beloved actor and entertainer Jamie Foxx has recently pulled out of hosting the Fox game show “We Are Family” alongside his older daughter, Corinne Foxx. This decision has sparked concerns among fans and industry insiders about Foxx’s health recovery following a reported stroke earlier this year.
Foxx’s social media presence has been a mix of celebrating his accomplishments, including his critically acclaimed new film “The Burial,” his daughter’s 15th birthday party, and his golf skills. However, he has remained mum about his health status and the reasons behind his exit from the game show.
A source close to Foxx exclusively told Life & Style magazine that his decision to step away from the hosting gig is a sign that he is still not fully recovered from the stroke he reportedly suffered in April. “Jamie pulling out of another project has friends worried that he hasn’t recuperated as well as everyone thinks,” the insider revealed.
The source added that Foxx has been keeping his recovery private and that even close friends and colleagues were unaware of the true nature of his condition. “He’s struggling, but Jamie has been very private about what happened and his recovery,” the insider explained.
Despite his recent social media posts showcasing his active lifestyle, Foxx has been cautious about overexerting himself. “In the end, Jamie wasn’t ready to add hosting a new game show to his schedule,” the source told Life & Style. “He’s being very careful regarding his health issues. He may not be at 100 percent, but the last thing he wants is to mess with the progress he has made.”
While his daughter, Corinne, is understandably disappointed by her father’s decision, she understands that his health needs to come first. “Jamie hasn’t had any major setbacks recently, still he doesn’t want to overdo it. He feels better than he has in months, and he owes that to ongoing physical therapy,” the insider shared.
Foxx’s ongoing recovery process serves as a reminder that even after a major health event, the path to full recovery can be long and unpredictable. His decision to prioritize his health and take a step back from certain commitments demonstrates his commitment to a full and lasting recovery.
As Foxx approaches his birthday in December, his fans and industry colleagues undoubtedly hope that he continues to make progress towards regaining his full health and vitality. His talent, energy, and infectious positivity are dearly missed, and his return to the spotlight is eagerly anticipated.
