Family and close friends of Jamie Foxx are asking for prayers as the actor remains hospitalized after suffering a medical complication.
While the family has not disclosed what caused the medical complication, the actor’s daughter, Corinne Foxx, took to Instagram and said that they were grateful for the thoughts and prayers.
“We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday (Tuesday April 11),” Corinne wrote at that time.
“Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”
The Djancho Unchained actor had since become able to communicate, TMZ reported, with a source telling the outlet: “He’s communicating now, and that’s good news.”
The publication claimed that Foxx’s medical emergency was ‘serious enough’ that other members of the family rushed to his side.
Friends of the actor have asked people for prayers, including one of his close friends Charles Mack.
