Jamie Foxx is breaking his silence about his hospitalization months back…where many fans believed he was close to death.

Jamie appeared at the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema and Television: Honoring Black, Latino and AAPI Achievements and collected the Vanguard Award for his performance in
The Burial.

“I couldn’t do that six months ago, I couldn’t actually walk to [the stage]. And I’m not a clone, I’m not a clone. I know a lot of people saying that I was cloned out there,” he told the audience. “It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now, it’s different. I wouldn’t wish what I went though on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over, when you see the tunnel. I saw the tunnel, I didn’t see the light. It was hot in that tunnel too, I don’t know where I was going. ‘Sh-t, am I going to the right place?'”

In April, rumors circulated about his ailing health, which prompted his daughter Corinne Foxx, 29, to speak out on May 12.

“Sad to see how the media runs wild. My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support,” she shared in an Instagram story. “We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”
