(CNN) Jamie Foxx He was hospitalized weeks ago But there is still a lot that is not known to the public.
However, anyone who has followed Jamie Foxx’s career closely should not be surprised by this.
On April 11th Foxx was hospitalized in AtlantaGeorgia, where he was filming the Netflix movie “Back in Action.”
CNN reached out to Foxx representatives several times to get information about what happened and the actor’s condition, and was unable to obtain additional details from them.
Virtually no information has been released other than his family initially requesting privacy and Posted last week on Foxx’s verified social media account.
“Appreciate all the love!!!” reads the post.“You feel blessed.”
The desire for privacy is in keeping with how the “Ray” star has always lived, despite his career putting him in the spotlight.
Going through interviews with Foxx over the years yields a lot of information about his thoughts on his roles, several jokes, some information about his childhood and very little insight into his actual personal life.
Foxx reportedly dated fellow co-star Katie Holmes, ex-wife of Tom Cruise, for half a dozen years – a relationship that has never been confirmed although it has been depicted over the years during what appeared to be romantic dates or moments when they were affectionate. together.
In 2016, former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Claudia Jordan came out to confirm that Foxx and Holmes were dating. during a podcast appearance He said, “He’s very happy with her. I like that he looks so happy.”
Jordan later clarified her comments, I say “entertainment tonight.” She “misspoke”.
“I have absolutely no knowledge of Jimmy with Katie,” she said. “I’ve never seen them together.”
after two years, Foxx was interviewed by SportsCenter host Michael Smith About participating in an NBA celebrity basketball game when Smith asked the star, “Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball on Valentine’s Day? Like some true love and basketball?”
Foxx abruptly ended the interview by taking off his headphone and walking away.
Foxx and Holmes were reported to have split in 2019.
So the silence surrounding Fox’s “medical complications,” to use his family’s words at first, seems consistent with the way the performer acts.

Hart said Foxx is “getting better” and also touched on why not much has been shared about him publicly from Foxx’s inner circle.
“They’re tight-fisted only for reasons of where he’s been because Jimmy’s always been a bit of a private person,” Hart said.
