By Chicago 3 Min Read

Jamie Foxx speaks for the first time since being admitted to hospital in April with an undisclosed medical condition.

The award-winning actor and musician posted a video update on Instagram for fans on Friday night, CNN reported it.

In the video, Foxx says there was a lot of speculation about what led up to her hospitalization, though she didn’t reveal the details of what transpired.

“I know a lot of people were waiting or wanted to get updates, but to be honest with you, I didn’t want you to see me like this, man,” he said. “I want you to see me laughing, having fun, partying, making a joke, making a movie, a TV show. I didn’t want you to see me with tubes coming out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it.”

Foxx credited his daughter and sister with saving his life.

“To them, to God, to a lot of great doctors, I can leave you this video,” he said. “I can’t tell you how great it is to have your family spring into action like this, and you all know they kept it airtight, they didn’t let anything out, they protected me, and that’s what I hope everyone can have at times like these.”

Foxx was spotted in Chicago in recent weeks, where he had undergone medical treatment at a facility that specializes in rehabilitation care for patients with physical impairments, brain or spinal injuries.

Foxx continued to set the record straight about the social media rumors.

“As you can see, the eyes work, the eyes work well. I’m not crippled, but I’ve gone to hell and back, and my road to recovery has had potholes too. But I’m coming back and I’m able to work.”

The video comes just hours after Foxx posted a photo of himself atop a gold car with the caption, “big things to come.”

The Oscar winner concluded the video by saying, “I love everyone and I love all the love I’ve gotten… If you see me outside from now on and I break down and cry every now and then, it’s only because it was hard, man. I was hurting, man. But now my legs are under me, so you’ll see me outside.”
