Jamie Foxx Details Health Scare, Says He Had a Headache and Woke Up 20 Days Later

“I don't remember anything," the actor said.

Jamie Foxx barely remembers what he went through during his medical emergency in 2023.

On Sunday (June 30), a TikTok user named Dr. Debra Combs posted a video of Foxx addressing the health scare to a few bystanders. "I had a bad headache, so I asked my boy for an Advil," he says in the video. "[Snaps fingers] Boom, I was gone for 20 days. I don't remember anything."

"I'm in Atlanta," the “Django Unchained” star recalled. "They told me [that] my sister and my daughter took me to the first doctor and he said, 'Nah' and gave me a cortisone shot. The next doctor said, 'There's something going on up there.' I won't say it on camera, but it was...[shakes head]."

In April 2023, Foxx’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, first announced the news of his "medical complication" on her social media platforms. "We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery," she shared.

Foxx was hospitalized for a few weeks, with minimal updates until Foxx posted in July 2023, addressing his fans. "I just didn't want you to see me like that," he said in a self-taped social media video. "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… I went to hell and back. I've been sick, man. But now, I've got my legs under me, so you're gonna see me out."
