Jamie Foxx gave what details he could remember of the medical incident he endured last year which left him hospitalized for more than two weeks.

The Oscar-winning actor chatted with concerned fans outside a restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona, where he attempted to provide answers as to what happened when he suffered a “medical complication” more than one year ago. 

“Look, April 11 last year, bad headache, asked my boy for an Advil,” Foxx said before snapping his fingers. “I was gone for 20 days.”

Corinne Foxx revealed on April 12 that her father was recovering from a medical complication. “Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery,” she wrote on social media at the time. “We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers.

Foxx has yet to disclose the medical condition he suffered.

“I don’t remember anything,” Jamie said to the fans at the restaurant. “So they told me – I’m in Atlanta – they told me, my sister and my daughter, they took me to the first doctor and they said … ‘nah,’ gave me a cortisone shot.
