Jamie Foxx reportedly suffered a medical emergency on Tuesday morning and was taken to hospital.

His daughter Corinne Foxx confirmed her famous father had been unwell a day later.

The 55-year-old star’s family are said to have travelled to the hospital to be by his side but thankfully Jamie’s now on his way to recovery.

On Wednesday, Corinne released a statement about her dad’s health on social media.

It read: ‘From the Foxx Family: We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday.

‘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. Much love, The Foxx Family.’

According to TMZ, Jamie’s condition was considered a ‘medical emergency’ and a source told the outlet ‘it was serious enough that Jamie’s family came to the hospital’.

They said the A-lister is now ‘communicating’.

MailOnline reports that Jamie had been filming his upcoming movie Back in Action in Atlanta alongside Cameron Diaz as recently as Monday.

It’s unclear whether Jamie was on set when he fell ill.

Earlier this month, Jamie and 50-year-old Cameron’s film was thrown into chaos after a World War II bomb was reportedly discovered on set.

At the time of the unusual find, the production was thought to be gearing up to film two massive stunts – one of which included a serious explosion. 

Shooting was scheduled to take place at East London’s Royal Docks however things were cancelled amid the ‘bomb news’, reportedly costing hundreds of thousands that had to be added to the budget. 

A source told The Sun: ‘The production expected the scene to go off with a bang — but nobody could have predicted it would all be derailed by a bomb.

‘The stunt was booked to take place last month at the dock. A 24-metre barrier was being erected into the river, where the explosion would take place.

‘But it was during the building of the set that they believed they found what they thought to be an unexploded bomb in the water.’

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Jamie’s reps for comment.
