Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, took to social media on Friday (May 11) to shut down erroneous reports that claim her family is “preparing for the worst.”
Journalist Toure took to social media hours ago and posted, “Jamie Foxx is on Life Support in ICU at this Hour…Family is preparing for the worst 🙁 … Wow.”
Sadly, multiple blog sites and media outlets picked up the post and ran with it like a baton in a triathlon.
Toure has since deleted the post and now he’s getting dragged on Twitter, but we’ll get back to that later.
Corinne Foxx broke her silence via her Instagram Story by responding to one of the headlines.
The 29-year-old actress wrote:
Update from the family:
Sad to see how the media runs wild.
My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating.
In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday!
Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!
We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!
See her original post below.
Imagine being at home trying to recuperate privately while folks are spreading rumors about you being on life support. SMH
I’m very happy to receive an update from Corinne and I pray Jamie Foxx continues to make a speedy and full recovery.
Now, back to Toure…
He is getting dragged like a Raggedy Andy doll through the streets of Twitter for carelessly spreading false information in regard to Jamie’s health.
Peep a few tweets below.
Let this entire situation serve as a lesson for all of us not to believe or share anything we hear about folks unless it comes directly from their family.
Sending love and prayers to Jamie Foxx.
