Jamie Foxx’s Pickle Ball Story Sounds Sour, Not Kosher: He’s “Out of the Hospital” But That Doesn’t Mean He’s Home


Jamie Foxx went to the hospital on April 10th with an unspecified medical condition. That was a month ago.

In that time, no one’s seen or heard from Foxx. The tabloids have had him near death. At one point, his daughter, Corinne, posted a notice to her father’s Instagram account saying he appreciated “all the love…feeling blessed.”

But there was no picture or video. It’s unlikely Foxx had much of a part in that post.

Hey, look, it’s none of our business. Everyone likes Jamie Foxx, so the interest is purely because people are concerned. But Jeremy Renner was run over by a snowplow, and we saw pictures him in the hospital within a week.

Foxx’s daughter now says he’s “been out of the hospital” for weeks. This does not mean he’s home. It sounds like he had some kind of stroke and is now in rehabilitation. That would make sense. I doubt he’s playing pickle ball, as her latest post reads. That sounds like a sour pickle, and not kosher at all.

At some point, Foxx’s family is going to have to give an honest answer. But in the meantime, let’s hope Foxx, who is fit and relatively young, bounces back. We need him to be ok.
