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.
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.
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.
