Jamie Foxx’s daughter has given an update on his health after there were claims that they were ‘preparing for the worst’.

The Django Unchained actor, 55, was rushed to a hospital in Georgia following a ‘medical complication’ last month.

Details about the Oscar-winning actor have largely been kept secret – with only friends and family members providing brief updates on his health.

His daughter, Corrine Foxx, initially broke the news about her father in an Instagram post.

Meanwhile, close friend Nick Cannon said that he has been ‘praying’ for his close friend while he was in hospital.

Foxx has since broken his silence where he posted a short message on Instagram which said: “Appreciate all the love. Feeling blessed.”

Despite the updates, reports from numerous social media accounts were claiming that Foxx’s condition had taken a turn for the worse and his family were preparing for some bad news.

The source also alleges that Foxx potentially suffered a stroke – claiming that the Any Given Sunday actor ‘suffers from high blood pressure’ and that ‘doctors believe this was a long time coming’.

Foxx’s condition was believed to be so severe that family members – some of which were not in the area – were told to visit him at the hospital, reports TMZ.
