In the days when the sun sets over Vegas, a familiar face is re-emerging on the scene – none other than the award-winning actor and comedian Jamie Foxx. Three months after an unanticipated health complication, the 55-year-old actor and Texas native has made his much-anticipated return to the public eye, hinting at a ‘BIG’ new project on the horizon.
Thursday saw Foxx buzzing with excitement on his Instagram account, hinting at a project he has in the works with BetMGM, a titan in the sports betting industry in alliance with MGM resorts. His post read, “Thankful for my @betmgm family and a great few nights in Vegas. We got BIG things coming soon 🦊”.
Not to be outdone, Foxx’s daughter Corinne, aged 29, also took to Instagram to express her pride and joy in her father’s endeavors. Sharing a radiant snapshot of the duo astride a golden Formula 1 car, she celebrated the successful wrap of the fourth year of their campaign with BetMGM. She wrote, “So proud of you always Dad.”
This year has been a roller-coaster ride for Foxx, who endured a challenging health situation back in April. News outlet Blavity noted that despite this scare, the resilient actor made several public appearances recently, including an enthusiastic wave to fans from a boat cruising the Chicago River and a few lively rounds at a local Topgolf in Naperville, Illinois.
Foxx, much loved for his affable nature, was also caught on video recovering a woman’s misplaced purse. TMZ, the renowned entertainment platform, captured Foxx’s altruistic act, showing him return the purse to its owner with his signature, heartwarming smile, before heading off in his vehicle.
Reflecting on his challenging health journey, Foxx extended heartfelt thanks to his supportive fans via Instagram, writing, “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed”. His recovery, according to Corinne, has been swift, thanks to excellent care and their family’s indomitable spirit.
The scare, which initially surfaced in April during Foxx’s shooting of the Netflix film ‘Back in Action’ with Cameron Diaz in Georgia, was confirmed by Corinne. Thankfully, Foxx is “already on his way to recovery,” Corinne reassured fans and the media, expressing her gratitude for everyone’s prayers and support.
From the words of an insider relayed to People, Foxx’s journey to recovery has been marked by immense effort, resilience, and significant improvement. Amid whispers and echoes in the entertainment industry, it is clear – Jamie Foxx is back, and he is ready to take the world by storm, once again.
