Jamie Foxx fans are still clamouring for updates regarding his health after the Django Unchained actor was hospitalised this April, and we have some positive news.

At the time, his daughter Corinne announced on Instagram that he'd "experienced a medical complication" but thanks to "quick action and great care", Foxx was on the road to recovery.

Three months down the line, though, we don't know exactly what happened to the 55-year-old.

Chatting to ET Canada, Foxx's They Cloned Tyrone co-stars John Boyega and Teyonah Parris were recently quizzed on their pal's progress.

"Yeah, he's all good. He's all good," replied Boyega. "So we're just going to wait for him to reappear when he wants to. Privacy and all."

Parris, who plays Yo-Yo in Netflix's upcoming mystery caper, chipped in with: "Giving people space to heal how they need to do."

Unsurprisingly, it turns out that Foxx was an absolute diamond to be around while working on They Cloned Tyrone.

"We got three stand-up shows that you would normally pay $29.99 for," recalled Boyega. "He gave us that for free. He played the piano, sang some songs, all of that. I don't need to ever go to one of these shows again."

Late last month, Foxx's Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! colleague Porscha Coleman also shared an insight to his wellbeing, before blasting the media for speculating "without having the proper information".

"One thing about Jamie is that he's always valued his privacy," she noted. "If you've noticed, Jamie Foxx has always been on the low.

"Even when it came to dating, Jamie's always been private, so it never surprised me. Once I heard the news, of course, I reached out, but how Foxx is doing it is how Foxx should be doing it. He's resting, he's well. And he's going to be back. Trust and believe."

They Cloned Tyrone premieres July 21 on Netflix.
