Actor Jamie Foxx said he was “coming back” from an illness that took him “to hell and back” in a video Saturday, his first statement since being hospitalized in April, following months of often wild speculation over his mysterious health problem.

Foxx posted a video to Instagram early Saturday morning, indicating he “went through something I thought I would never go through,” though he did not disclose what caused him to be hospitalized.

Foxx—who previously posted a brief statement thanking his fans in May—said he understood people “were waiting or wanting to hear updates” about his health, adding he didn’t want to be seen “with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through.”

The actor said his “road to recovery had some potholes as well,” noting he was “coming back and I’m able to work.”

He also debunked some rumors about his health, including those that suggested he had gone blind or was paralyzed, by rolling his eyes and pulling at his face.

“If you see me out from now on, and every once in a while I just burst into tears,” Foxx said. “It’s been tough, man. I was sick, man, but now I’ve got my legs under me, so you’ll see me out.”

Fox announced in May that Foxx and his daughter Corinne would host the game show We Are Family starting next year, featuring the non-famous relatives of celebrities performing duets with their hidden famous family members. The pair previously hosted the music game show Beat Shazam on the network.

Foxx was hospitalized for a “medical condition” on April 11 while filming the Netflix movie Back in Action, which canceled days of filming and changed its production schedule following the incident, according to People. Little is known about the incident, though People reported it did not happen while filming the movie. Corinne Foxx posted on Instagram the following day indicating her father was “already on the way to recovery,” though she later deleted the post. Following the announcement she and her father would host We Are Family, she said her father had been “out of the hospital for weeks” and denied a report indicating the family was preparing for “the worst.” She also said he had played pickleball a day earlier. On May 3, Jamie broke his silence while thanking his supporters: “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.” The actor was later seen at a physical rehabilitation facility in Chicago in May, according to TMZ, and had been at the facility since the end of April. Foxx missed the premiere of his latest movie They Cloned Tyrone last month, though co-star John Boyega said Foxx was “doing well.” He was seen publicly for the first time earlier this month aboard a boat on the Chicago River, according to TMZ. Jamie posted another update on Friday, suggesting he recently shot an advertisement for BetMGM.
