Three weeks ago, the actor’s daughter released a statement saying she was ill following a “medical complication.” Corinne Foxx did not provide further details.
“We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” she wrote in Instagram. “Thankfully, due to quick action and excellent care, he is on the road to recovery. We know how much he is loved and we appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”
Actor Vin Diesel and musicians DJ Khaled and Ludacris were among those who commented on the new post and expressed support. Also civil rights activist Bernice King tweeted: “Praying for you, brother. Keep fighting to get better.”
Foxx, 55, is best known for his portrayal of jazz singer Ray Charles in the biopic film “Ray,” which in 2005 earned him a best actor Oscar. He also played leading roles in films such as “Django Unchained” and “Dreamgirls.”
The actor reportedly fell ill in Atlanta while filming a Netflix show in early April with actress Cameron Diaz.
