After the 55-year-old Oscar winner’s health scare last week, TMZ also reports that Foxx is “doing better” and “flirting around with his family.”
While he recovers quickly, his doctors monitor the actor and run tests in an effort to find the cause of his problems, which have not been made public.
Jimmy seems to be doing better, even joking around with the family. However, doctors need to get to the bottom of something
said an insider.
The report states that Jimmy remains under the care of medical staff and there is no timeline on when he may be able to return to work.
The “Ray” star was busy filming his upcoming Netflix comedy Back in Action in Atlanta, GA shortly before his medical crisis, and People reported that a day of filming was postponed after Jamie fell ill.
Jamie’s health scare was revealed by his daughter, Corinne Fox, 29, who shared the news on Instagram, writing: “We wanted to share that my dad, Jamie Foxx, had medical complications yesterday.
Fortunately, because of the quick work and great care, he’s already on the road to recovery. We know how loved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family requests privacy during this time. Much love, Fox family.
No further details about Jamie’s condition have been revealed.
AT THE HOSPITAL: While there’s no word on when he’ll return to the set, multiple sources tell TMZ that they still manage to “finish next week” in some way (pictured on the set of Back in Action last week)
Conflicting severity: He ‘suffered from medical complications,’ a family statement said, though a source described the case as a ‘medical emergency’ to TMZ
Few details have been shared at the moment, and it’s unclear what symptoms the Oscar-winner may have been experiencing, or what led to his hospitalization.
Despite his family’s statement that his condition is improving, there is no information yet on when he will leave the hospital or return to photography.
Foxx was recently in Atlanta, Georgia, filming the action comedy Back In Action.
The film has been marketed as a return to acting for actor Cameron Diaz, who helped lure him into the film, even though she plans to retire permanently after a series of disasters on the film’s set. Glenn Close also appeared in the film.
Later, sources with direct knowledge of Foxx’s condition told TMZ that he was taken to the hospital on Tuesday morning.
Together in crisis: Sources later told TMZ that Foxx’s family rushed in from out of town to be by his side in the hospital, suggesting they feared it was a serious problem; He was seen with his daughter, Corinne, in 2019 in Los Angeles
They confirmed that his condition was so serious that the actor’s family came from outside the city to be with him in the hospital.
One source added, “He’s communicating now, and that’s good news,” which could mean that he was at some point unable to communicate due to a medical emergency.
Fox shares daughter Corinne with ex-girlfriend Connie Klein. He also has a 13-year-old daughter, Annalize, whom he shares with Christine Grannis.
Filming his latest movie in Atlanta appears to have been a surprisingly grueling ordeal for the Baby Driver actor, as well as his co-stars.
It was reported last month that Foxx “had an absolute meltdown” while filming the movie in the UK, which resulted in multiple people being shot.
He reportedly fired an executive producer from the project, along with two directors and even his own chauffeur.
According to The Sun, a staff member has been sacked in connection with an apparent scam of gaining access to £33,000 in cash from the actor, which was said to relate to the sale of a Rolex watch.
There was even more drama when it was revealed that production had been paused last month after an unexploded World War II-era bomb was discovered on the film’s London set, before two key action scenes could be shot.

The shoot, which was initially supposed to be Cameron’s triumphant return to the film, was instead a nightmare for her and the rest of the cast.
A friend of the Mask star revealed EXCLUSIVELY to DailyMail.com that she’ll likely go back into retirement for good once she wraps her comeback movie because of all the drama surrounding it, though she’s also against the standard arguments and criticisms that come with any filming location.
Few details about the film’s plot or characters have been revealed.
Photos from Monday show Fox coaching the women’s soccer team, but he and Diaz were seen on set in the UK last month filming what appeared to be action scenes in a snowy forest.
