(CNN) — Actor Jamie Foxx is undergoing medical treatment at a physical rehabilitation facility in Chicago, where he has been receiving care for the past two weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.

The individual did not disclose what Foxx is being treated for, but the center specializes in rehabilitation care for patients with physical impairments, brain or spine injuries.

Foxx was initially hospitalized in Atlanta, Georgia on April 11 after experiencing an undisclosed “medical complication,” according to his daughter, Corinne Foxx. No further information about the incident was provided.

On Friday, Foxx’s daughter, with whom he co-hosts the game show “Beat Shazam,” shared an “update from the family” on her Instagram story that her father has “been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating.”

The update came after multiple media reports cited friends who were seeking prayers for the Oscar-winning actor’s ongoing recovery.

“Sad to see how the media runs wild,” Corinne Foxx wrote at the time. “My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!”

Earlier this month, Jamie Foxx shared a brief message on Instagram to express his gratitude for the support he has received, writing “Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed.”
