*Jamie Foxx plans to host a televised special to finally explain his hospitalization last year. 

Foxx appeared at the African American Film Critics Association Award Sunday night in L.A. and accepted a Producers Award. During his speech, the comedian/actor talked about how his perspective on life has shifted since his medical scare in 2023, TMZ reports. 

“Everybody wants to know what happened, and I’m going to tell you what happened. But I’ve gotta do it in my way,” Foxx said. “I’m gonna do it in a funny way. We’re gonna be on the stage. We’re gonna get back to the standup sort of roots.”

“It’ll be called, ‘What Had Happened Was,’ and it’s got all the things that happened, especially on our side of our community,” he said, before touching on the rumors that he’s a clone. 

You may recall the few sightings of Foxx after his hospitalization, and many fans speculated that it wasn’t really him. Many still believe the Jamie Foxx we see today is actually a clone. 

“I dove out of a car to save this Black woman’s purse,” Foxx recalled during his speech. “That ain’t no damn Jamie, that’s a clone.” 

Back in November, insiders said Foxx was still struggling months after his hospitalization from mysterious medical complications. 

“Jamie pulling out of another project has friends worried that he hasn’t recuperated as well as everyone thinks,” an insider told the National Enquirer, RadarOnline. “He’s struggling, but Jamie has been very private about what happened and his recovery.

In August, Foxx shared an update on his health via photos of himself on Instagram. As CNN reported in an article on EUR, the Oscar-winning actor said he was starting to feel more like himself following a medical emergency.

“You’re lookin’ at a man who is thankful… finally startin’ to feel like myself…” he wrote. “It’s been an unexpected dark journey… but I can see the light… I’m thankful to everyone that reached out and sent well wishes and prayers… I have a lot of people to thank… u just don’t know how much it meant.”

Foxx added: “I will be thanking all of you personally… and if you didn’t know… GOD IS GOOD… all day every day… #swipeleft #imbackandimbetter #nobaddays”.

Last December, Foxx made his first public appearance at a Critics Choice Association event, and a month later, he reunited with Cameron Diaz on the set of “Back in Action.” The actor is preparing to co-host Fox’s “Beat Shazam” alongside his daughter, Corinne Foxx.
