Jamie Foxx had to be taken to a hospital after suffering an undisclosed medical emergency, his daughter Corinne Foxx revealed Wednesday.

In a statement attributed to the actor’s family that was posted to her Instagram account, they wrote that the 55-year-old actor had suffered a ‘medical complication’ that required him to be taken to the hospital. He had been filming Back In Action in Atlanta with Cameron Diaz as recently as Monday.

The family also said in the statement that Foxx was now ‘on his way to recovery,’ though they didn’t reveal what medical issue he suffered.

But a source described the issue to TMZ in more serious terms, calling it a ‘medical emergency,’ though they said Foxx was now ‘communicating’ again.

‘We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday [Tuesday],’ the family statement began.

‘Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery,’ they continued.

‘We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.’

Sources confirmed to TMZ that Foxx’s unnamed condition was indeed serious enough to require him to go to a hospital.

Few details have been shared at the moment, and it’s unclear what symptoms the Oscar winner may have been suffering from, or what led to him being taken to the hospital.

Despite his family’s statement that his condition is improving, there’s no word yet on when he will be able to leave the hospital or get back to filming.

Foxx has lately been in Atlanta, Georgia, where he has been filming the action-comedy Back In Action.

The film has been marketed as the return to acting for his costar Cameron Diaz, whom he helped to lure back for the film, though she reportedly plans to retire for good after a string of catastrophes on the film set. Glenn Close is also featured in the film.

Later, sources with direct knowledge of Foxx’s condition told TMZ that he had been taken to the hospital on Tuesday morning.

Together in a crisis: Sources later told TMZ that Foxx's family had rushed from out of town to be by his side in the hospital, suggesting they feared that it was a serious issue; seen with daughter Corinne in 2019 in LA

Hard at work: Foxx was last pictured on set on Monday. He was seen filming a scene with a women's soccer team in Atlanta, while Diaz and costar Glenn Close filmed a separate scene cheering on the team

They emphasized that his condition was serious enough that the actor’s family came from out of town to be with him at the hospital.

One source added, ‘He’s communicating now, and that’s good news,’ which may imply that he was at one point unable to communicate due to the medical emergency. 

Foxx shares his daughter Corinne with his ex-girlfriend Connie Kline. He also has a 13-year-old daughter Annalise, whom he shares with Kristin Grannis.

His latest film shoot in Atlanta appears to have been a surprisingly stressful ordeal for the Baby Driver actor, as well as his colleagues. 

It was reported last month that Foxx ‘had an absolute meltdown’ while the film was shooting in the UK, which led to the firing of multiple people.

He reportedly booted an executive producer from the project, along with two directors and even his own driver. 

According to The Sun, one staffer was fired in relation to an apparent scam to access £33,000 in cash from the actor, which was reportedly in relation to the sale of a Rolex watch.

There was even more drama when it was revealed that production was paused last month after an unexploded WWII-era bomb was discovered on the film’s set in London, just before two major action scenes were set to be filmed. 

One thing after another: The shoot has reportedly been trying for Foxx. He called police and fired multiple crew members after he was allegedly targeted in a scam, and production was temporarily shut down after an unexploded WWII-era bomb was found on set in the UK; seen in August 2022

The shoot, which was initially meant to be Cameron’s triumphant return to film, has instead been a nightmare for her and the rest of the cast.

A friend of the Mask star revealed exclusively to DailyMail.com that she is likely to go back into retirement for good as soon as she wraps her comeback film due to all the drama around it, though she also is apparently opposed to the standard arguments and criticisms that come with any film set.

Few details about the film’s plot or characters have been revealed.

Photos from Monday appeared to show Foxx 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 out in a snowy forest.
