Jamie Foxx says he ‘went to hell and back’ he speaks about his illness



Jamie Foxx said he “went to hell and back” but was “coming back,” in his first statement since he was hospitalized with an unspecified medical emergency .

In April, his daughter said he had experienced a “medical complication”.

In an Instagram post on saturday he thanked his family.

“I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back. I went through something that I thought I would never, ever go through,” said Foxx in the post. ““I just didn’t want you to see me like that. I want you to see me laughing, having a good time, partying, cracking a joke, doing a movie, a television show. I just 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.”

Foxx also said that his road to recovery “had some potholes” but that he is on his way back to good health and able to work again.

“I just want to say that I love everybody, and I love all the love that I got,” said Foxx.

“I am on my way back,” Foxx said at the end of his emotional video message.
