Oscar winner and American actor Jamie Foxx is recovering from “a medical complication” after being hospitalized in Atlanta, where he was filming a new comedy with actress Cameron Diaz for Netflix.
So what exactly happened to Hollywood star Jamie Foxx?
On April 12, Corinne Fox, daughter of Jamie Foxx, released a statement on her Instagram. “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” the statement read. “Fortunately, due to prompt action and care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how dear he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.
According to a report in TMZ, Foxx experienced a medical emergency on Tuesday morning, April 10, and was immediately taken to the hospital. Even though no official statement has been made on the exact details of the medical emergency, his condition was so critical that his family was asked to attend to him immediately. After 6 days in medical care, it is being reported that he is communicating and ‘this is great news’.
Foxx has also admitted to substance abuse in the past, ‘when [Kanye] Talked about drugs, psych drugs, I have an episode of that,’ he said in a 2018 interview with Hip Hop Hollywood. ‘When [Kanye] was talking about, “I took two pills, and then seven pills [he received from the hospital],’It’s real!'”
The medical incident did not happen in Atlanta, Georgia, where Foxx was filming the Netflix movie “Back in Action,” confirmed CNN, citing a source.
He reportedly fell ill on set a few weeks before the incident, after which the film had to be shelved and four people fired. “There have been some issues on set and Jamie has had a huge meltdown over it all,” the insider told The Sun, demanding that the problems be resolved immediately and sacking four of the production staff. Go – as if that would magically improve the situation. The source added: “Some of the people working on it are absolutely fed up with how this has played out and Jamie has become quite unpopular.”
