Jamie reportedly arrived at a physical rehabilitation facility in Chicago in late April, after initial treatment in an Atlanta hospital.

A source who spoke with TMZ said that the actor is now “recovering well”.

Corinne the actor’s daughter announced that her father had left the hospital, writing on Instagram; ‘My dad has been out of the hospital for weeks recuperating.
