Per TMZ, the Ray star looked vibrant as he waved to fans. Foxx was also greeted by a neighboring boat, which cheered at the sight of the actor. A month after the 55-Year-Old got hospitalized, his daughter, Corinne, 29, had announced her father had been out of the hospital for weeks and recuperating. At the time, she insisted Foxx had been well enough to play one of his favorite sports, pickleball.

Specifically, Corinne was forced to share the health update after numerous reports surfaced claiming Jamie Foxx was preparing for the worst. “Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating,” she wrote in an Instagram Story. “In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!” However, John Boyega had a few days ago shared Jamie Foxx is all good amid his health battle.

Speaking to ET Canada, Boyega, who stars alongside Foxx in the new film They Cloned Tyrone, said of Foxx: ‘He’s all good. He’s all good when asked if he’s spoken to the actor lately. ‘So we’re just going to wait for him to reappear when he wants to.’ Fellow co-star Teyonah Parris added, “Giving people space to heal how they need to do.” Datari Turner, who co-produced the film alongside Foxx said: ‘He’s doing amazing. I promise you. Doing good. [Director] Juel [Taylor] talked to him yesterday.’

Datari added, ‘John Boyega talked to him yesterday. He’s in really, really good shape and spirits. And he’ll be back on the screen. He’ll be back to work very soon.’ In his new Netflix film, Jamie Foxx plays Slick Charles, who forms an unlikely trio with Boyega (Fontaine) and Teyonah Parris (Yo-Yo) who discover a government conspiracy in an underground laboratory. The trio witness a man being kidnapped off the street and they follow the car to an underground lab hidden below a convenience store. 

They Cloned Tyrone, set for release on Netflix on July 21 marks Foxx’s first film release since he suffered a ‘medical complication’ in April.

Before now, there have been numerous speculations that Foxx was left seriously ill after taking a vaccine. Notable figures including host Candace Owens suggested Foxx had indeed been damaged by the vaccine. The uproar emerged when podcaster A.J. Benza made a shock unconfirmed claim on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s online talk show that Foxx had been left ‘partially paralyzed and blind’ after he received a COVID-19 vaccine. Benza claimed Foxx was ‘forced’ to get a vaccine to work on a film.

The podcaster alleged the actor developed a blood clot which led to a stroke afterward. But, Foxx’s representatives told NBC News that Benza’s claim is ‘completely inaccurate.’ 

Pinsky told the publication in a statement‘The statements from A.J. were based on his own confidential sources, so I can’t speculate further than what he said on the show. I sincerely hope that AJ’s sources are wrong and that Mr. Foxx will make a full recovery. There is no evidence, and I have no reason to believe, that his medical condition is directly related to vaccine therapy or a post-COVID phenomenon. Any evidence of either would have to come from his physicians.’
