Jamie Foxx Makes First Public Appearance Since Medical Scare: Opens Up About Mystery Illness and Temporary Loss of Mobility: ‘I Couldn’t Actually Walk’

Jamie Foxx emotionally opened up about his recent hospitalization, revealing he was unable to walk at one point.

This revelation occurred during his first public appearance since the incident while accepting the Vanguard Award at the Critics Choice Association event in Los Angeles.

“You know it’s crazy I couldn’t do that six months ago. I couldn’t actually walk,” Foxx said.

“And I’m not a clone, I’m not a clone. I know a lot of people were saying I was cloned out there,” he added while laughing.

“It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now. It’s different. You know? It’s different. It’s beyond — I wouldn’t wish what went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over, when you see the tunnel,” Foxx continued.

“I saw the tunnel, I didn’t see the light!” he said jokingly. “It was hot in that tunnel! I didn’t know what I was doing. S—, am I going to the right place? I see the devil going ‘c’mon.'”

Foxx faced a medical emergency during the filming of “Back in Action” in April. He remained out of the public eye until July, when he shared on Instagram that he had “went to hell and back” but was on the path to recovery.

“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.

Additionally, he thanked his sister and daughter for “not letting anybody know anything that happened,” adding, “I can only say that you need somebody like that in your corner.”

Foxx revealed that he was treated in Chicago and said the ordeal has given him a deeper respect for life and art.

“Black people, when we almost die or go through something like that, there’s two phrases, one of two phrases we say. One is, ‘Lord, have mercy, Jesus. Lord, have mercy, Jesus.’” he said.

“I want to say thank you so much. I want to say, six months ago I couldn’t fathom that this could happen or that I would be here, but as I walk up here to this microphone and get this Vanguard Award, all I can say is Lord, have mercy, Jesus.”
