‘’My Trip To Hell & Back’’ – Jamie Foxx

Academy Award-winning actor and singer Jamie Foxx has opened up for the first time on the circumstances that led to a long stay in hospital for unspecified medical emergency last year April. 

“I went through something that I thought I would never ever go through, and I know a lot of people were waiting or wanting to hear updates but to be honest with you I just didn’t want you to see me like that man,” the “Django Unchained” star said, in an emotional three-minute video posted to his Instagram account on Friday.

“I want you to see me laughing, having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, television show,” he added. “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.”

Although he did not say what exactly what caused him to be hospitalized, Foxx, 55, said, “I went to hell and back,” adding that his “road to recovery had some potholes as well, but I’m coming back and I’m able to work.”

Thanking “everybody that’s prayed man and sent me messages,” he also expressed his gratitude to the “great medical people” who treated him. “I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back,” he said.

He also credited his sister Deidra Dixon and his daughter Corinne Foxx, saying they had “saved his life.” He added that they “kept it airtight, they let nothing out, they protected me. And that’s what I hope everyone could have in moments like these.”

Corinne shared the news that the actor was recuperating in May, almost a month after he was hospitalized while filming in Atlanta. At the time he was working on “Back in Action” alongside Glenn Close and Cameron Diaz. 

Foxx has remained out of the public eye for months, missing the premier for his latest movie “They Cloned Tyrone”in June. 

“If you see me out from now on, and every once in a while, I just burst into tears, it’s because it’s been tough man, I was sick man, but now I’ve got my legs under me so you’ll see me out,” he said.
