Last week, Jamie Foxx was on the set of his new Netflix movie, Back In Action. Now, he seems to be indefinitely hospitalized as doctor’s look for answers. There has been no shortage of drama on the film set, even without Foxx being hospitalized. The actor had recently been scammed by someone on the crew. He also reportedly had a meltdown on set. The hospitalization due to an undisclosed “medical complication” was the latest in a long line of bad luck for the actor.
Foxx’s daughter, Corinne, broke the news in an Instagram post. “We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced [a] medical complication yesterday,” she began, “Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.” This is good news for Foxx, who seemed to be in great health until now. According to a TMZ “source,” the situation was far more grave than the actor’s daughter made it out to be. “We’re told his condition was serious enough that Jamie’s family — some of whom were not in town — came to the hospital,” they said. “He’s communicating now, and that’s good news.”
Jamie Foxx is still in the hospital in Atlanta, receiving medical care and undergoing tests, almost a week after he encountered a health issue that led to the suspension of filming for his upcoming movie Back in Action. According to a source who spoke to People on Monday, doctors are currently investigating the cause of the problem. A separate insider had previously informed CNN three days earlier that the 55-year-old actor, known for his roles in Ray and Django Unchained, was being closely monitored by medical experts as they continued to determine the exact nature of the issue.
Production on Foxx’s new movie was halted on Wednesday due to his condition. However, it resumed the next day in his absence, with his stunt double photographed on set. The upcoming movie also stars Cameron Diaz, who Foxx convinced to return to Hollywood. She had previously retired from acting, and had spent eight years out of the limelight. It is unclear when or if Jamie Foxx will return to the production. Given that the doctors have yet to find answers, only time will tell.
