Even though he seems to be leading a regular life, Jamie Foxx is apparently still in shock after the alarming health crisis that sent him to the hospital earlier this year.

According to OK!, a source told a news organisation that worries about Jamie’s recuperation arose when he decided not to continue hosting “We Are Family” with his daughter Corinne Foxx.

The actor was’still suffering’ to deal with his health, the insider said, despite appearing to be on a favourable trajectory for his rehabilitation, with appearances on social media showing him enjoying life and performing sports. “Jamie pulling out of another project has friends worried that he hasn’t recuperated as well as everyone thinks,” according to a source.

After being admitted to the hospital earlier this year, the 55-year-old Oscar winner made his first significant public appearance on Monday night when he accepted the Vanguard Award at the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema & Television: Honouring Black, Latino, and AAPI Achievements event in Los Angeles. There was more than thirty seconds of thunderous clapping as he unexpectedly appeared on stage.

Telling the assembled fellow awardees and celebrities, “I’ve been through some things,” Foxx shared his experiences. It’s absurd; half a year ago, I couldn’t have done that. Actually, I was unable to walk.”

“He’s struggling, but Jamie has been very private about what happened and his recovery.”

When asked why he gave up hosting, the insider explained that he just “wasn’t ready to add hosting a new game show to his schedule.”

The insider revealed, “He’s being very careful regarding his health issue.”

“He may not be at 100 percent, but the last thing he wants is to mess with the progress he has made.”

He seemed like he was becoming tearful and took a minute to gather himself.

“It is nice to be at this place. I now value each and every minute. It’s not the same,” he went on. “It’s difficult when it’s almost finished, so I wouldn’t want what I went through on my greatest enemy. The tunnel was visible to me. I was blind to the light. I had no idea where I was heading, and it was really hot in that tube.”

“Am I going to the right place?” Foxx joked. “I perceive the devil saying, ‘C’mon.'”
