Jamie Foxx, the Oscar-winning actor, was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday due to a “medical complication”, according to his daughter Corinne Foxx.
The actor, who is known for his roles in films such as Django, Collateral, and Ray, received prompt and excellent care, and is already on his way to recovery.
His family expressed gratitude for the support from fans and asked for privacy during this time.
“We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers.
The family asks for privacy during this time.
Much love, The Foxx Family,” said Corinne in a social media post.
Further details of the incident have not been disclosed by the family, but TMZ reported that sources close to the actor revealed he had experienced a “medical emergency” on Tuesday morning.
The condition was serious enough that Foxx’s family, some of whom were not in town, rushed to the hospital.
However, the actor is currently communicating, and that is good news.
Just two days ago, Foxx was spotted filming his latest movie, Back in Action, in Atlanta, where he stars alongside Cameron Diaz.
They have previously worked together on the film Annie in 2014 and Any Given Sunday in 1999.
Diaz recently spoke about Foxx in an interview, saying, “He’s so great, he’s so easy, he’s so professional, he’s so talented. And just being able to work with him, it’ll be so much fun.”
Foxx also commented on Diaz’s return to the film industry after her retirement, saying, “We just begged and pleaded on my knees, like, ‘Just give the people one more again. We love her, we’ve been waiting on her and this is just gonna be fantastic.”
Foxx has been active in the entertainment industry for over three decades, receiving numerous accolades for his work in films, television, and music.
He won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray.
The news of Foxx’s medical emergency has sparked concern among his fans, who have taken to social media to express their support and well wishes.
Many have sent prayers and love to the actor and his family during this difficult time.
Foxx’s health scare is a reminder of the importance of taking care of oneself, especially in the midst of a busy work schedule.
It is crucial to prioritize rest and self-care to prevent burnout and other health complications.
The entertainment industry has seen several high-profile health scares in recent years, with celebrities such as Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, and Selena Gomez speaking openly about their struggles with mental health and addiction.
The increased awareness of mental health issues and the importance of seeking help and support has been a positive development, as it encourages people to prioritize their mental and emotional well-being.
