Nick Cannon gave fans an update on how his pal actor Jamie Foxx was doing after being hospitalized nearly two weeks ago for what Foxx’s family called “medical complications.”
The 42-year-old TV host told Entertainment Tonight on Sunday that the 55-year-old actor is “awake” and “alert” following reports on April 12 that the actor was admitted to the hospital for an undisclosed condition. At the time, the news was confirmed by Foxx’s daughter actress Corinne Foxx on her Instagram.
“Man, I’m praying,” Cannon told the outlet. “You see, I posted on Instagram. I literally have been saying prayers out loud. Words of affirmation for my big brother.”
“I know he’s doing so much better because I’m actually about to do something special for him, and doing him a favor,” he added. “I can’t really say what it is, but it’ll be out there soon.”
“I was reluctant to go all the way there, and even talk about it, but he gave me the blessing, so it’s a beautiful thing,” Cannon continued. “He’s awake. They say he’s alert, so, we love it. That’s family right there.”

The post Cannon was referring to came days after reports surfaced about the star being in the hospital. At the time he wrote, “Prayer Changes Things! Living Testament! Let’s all speak complete and total recovery for the most talented human on earth with a Spirit bigger than this small planet!”
“Gods power is working through you as we speak!” he added. “Sickness, Low frequencies nor negativity have any authority over your life King!”
His post also included a few Bible verses.
“For he says he will take all sickness away in Exodus 23:25 We cast all our cares and infirmities upon him! 1 Peter 5:7! Amen!” Cannon wrote. “Continuing to send Prayers, healing energy and Love Frequencies your way Big Bro!! You know how much I love you Family.”
The latest update also included that Foxx is “healing” and “feels the love from everyone,” a source that told ET.
In Corrine’s original post, she wrote “From the Foxx Family: We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” as previously reported.
“Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery,” she added. “We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family ask for privacy during this time. Much love, The Foxx Family.”
