Foxx first broke his silence with a written message on Instagram, expressing to his millions of social media followers on May 3: “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.” He followed up the post about his health by sharing a video message in July where he spoke more about why he did not update fans about his medical scare during his hospitalization.

“I went through something that I thought I would never ever go through,” he said. “I know a lot of people were waiting and, you know, wanting to hear updates but to be honest with you, I just didn’t want you to see me like that.”
