Actor Jamie Foxx Still Recuperating In A Chicago Medical Facility

Jamie Foxx has yet to call time on his stay in a Chicago medical facility weeks after he checked in to recuperate from a recent health scare.

He was first hospitalized in an Atlanta hospital before being moved to the medical facility, as confirmed by his daughter Corrine in a now-expired Instagram post.

His continuous stay has kept fans worried, further fueled by the absence of specific details about the medical emergency and his silence on social media.

While Foxx has been away, actor Nick Cannon has temporarily filled in as host of the show, “Beat Shazam.”

Per Radar Onlinethere seems to be no discharge date in sight for Foxx, who is still checked in to a medical facility in Chicago that specializes in rehabilitating people who have suffered complicated health issues.

The actor was previously hospitalized in an Atlanta hospital for weeks after he experienced a health scare while at the location filming his upcoming Netflix movie “Back In Action” alongside Cameron Diaz.

He was moved to Chicago when his condition improved, but his prolonged stay in the new medical facility has made many think that his health status hasn’t gotten any better.

In the meantime, it is still unclear what led to the health scare as the actor’s family have continued to keep friends and fans out of the loop, although they have been spotted visiting him on several occasions.
