(BBR) Jamie Foxx breaks silence on hospitalization, game show replaces him as host
On Wednesday (May 3), Jamie Foxx broke his silence on the undisclosed "medical complication" that sent him to the hospital more than three weeks ago. Amid reports the Oscar winner has remained hospitalized since -- shutting down production of his upcoming Netflix film "Back in Action" and forcing his game show "Beat Shazam" to sub in Nick Cannon as guest host -- Jamie shared two posts on Instagram after weeks of silence. "Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed," he wrote on his page Wednesday. He also thanked Nick for swooping in to help with his show, writing, "Appreciate ya my boy @nickcannon" on his Instagram Stories. "See u all soon," he added, according to Entertainment Tonight.
On the May 2 episode of the "Impaulsive" podcast, Jamie's friend Kevin Hart said the actor was "getting better" but acknowledged that he's still in the dark about what the Oscar winner is facing. "I don't know the details or the exact details as to what's going on, but to my knowledge, there's a lot of progression and a world of better," the comedian said.
Jamie, 55, first suffered the health incident on the Atlanta set of "Back in Action" on April 11. His family has kept all further details about the situation private.
