Jamie Foxx will update fans on his health “when he’s ready,” according to his pal Nick Cannon.
The “Masked Singer” host opened up about his friend’s ongoing health scare after he was hospitalized for an unknown “medical complication” in April.
“One thing I’ve always respected about how Jamie’s moved throughout his entire career, if you’ve noticed, he’s always been somebody who is extremely professional and extremely private,” Cannon told Extra TV Thursday.
“I mean, you don’t ever really hear anything other than just the great work that he puts forth as a professional and the fact that, you know, he’s handled this situation with the same manner, you only can respect that.”
“I believe when he’s ready, he’s going to address the awaiting fans in the world [about his health scare] the way that only he can,” the father of 12 said.
When asked if his movie star pal suffered a stroke, Cannon did not divulge details of Foxx’s condition.
“I’m probably in the same boat as you in that same sense of just knowing that, you know, as a friend, just being as respectful as I can, I don’t pry,” Cannon said.
“I don’t ask any other questions. And other than the information that’s given to me and, you know, what’s asked of me.”
Cannon, who filled in for the host on the show “Beat Shazam,” added that whatever Foxx’s family has said so far is “the information that they want to be out there.”
“I was definitely one of those people initially with like the heavy-handed prayers… sending positive energy, love, and prayers,” he went on. “And they were like, ‘Yo, we appreciate all of that, but we got it.’ And, you know, Jamie’s happy with the job that I did on ‘Beat Shazam.’”
Cannon spoke out about Foxx’s recovery in April, saying the 55-year-old actor is “awake” and “alert” despite conflicting reports at the time.
The “Drumline” star’s update comes on the heels of his touching Instagram tribute to Foxx.

In the April 15 post, Cannon asked his social media followers to speak “words of affirmation” over the Oscar winner.
“Let’s all speak complete and total recovery for the most talented human on earth with a Spirit bigger than this small planet!!” he wrote at the time.
“Continuing to send Prayers, healing energy and Love Frequencies your way Big Bro!!” the “All That” alum continued. “You know how much I love you Family.”
