Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx was reportedly hospitalized last week for an unknown medical issue while filming the Netflix movie “Back in Action” in Atlanta. He is still undergoing tests and doctors are investigating the incident, according to People Magazine.
His daughter, Corrine Foxx, announced the news of his health crisis on Instagram, thanking fans for their prayers and stating that her father was on the road to recovery.
Jamie Foxx is battling a mystery illness, but he’s still working on some of his latest projects. In a recent interview, he shared that he’s gotten some good news with one of them.
He’s starring in Nick Cassavetes’ upcoming crime thriller, God Is a Bullet, and it’s finally getting picked up by a studio for theatrical release.
During the film’s shoot in London, there was a lot of drama. Some staff members were fired after they tried to scam Foxx for 33,000 pounds, linked to the sale of a Rolex watch.
In any case, it’s no surprise that Foxx was rushed to the hospital. It’s a scary thing to happen to someone you love so much, but thankfully, the 55-year-old is now in recovery.
He’s been receiving plenty of love and prayers from fans since his daughter Corinne first announced his health scare on Instagram on April 12. He’s reportedly “steadily improving” while he’s in the hospital, and we hope to see him back on the set of Back in Action soon!
