Since yesterday, the phrase “Jamie Foxx hospitalized” has been trending on Twitter.
Social media has been flooded with reports that the actor/singer has been rushed to the hospital.
According to TMZ, Foxx was rushed to the hospital after suffering from a “medical complication,” according to his family.
A social media status update revealed Corinne Foxx, Foxx’s daughter. She admitted that his father had an emergency on Tuesday but was eventually given “great care” by professionals.
According to the outlet’s sources, Jamie Foxx’s health issues were severe enough that he was hospitalized.
“We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time,”
On social media, prayers, and well-wishes poured in, wishing him a speedy recovery.
Another source told TMZ that Jamie Foxx’s hospitalization was “serious enough” not only because he was hospitalized but also because it brought many of his out-of-town family members to the hospital.
The source also revealed an interesting fact about Jamie Foxx’s health:
“He’s communicating now, and that’s good news.”
As of this writing, the reason for Jamie Foxx’s hospitalization has not been revealed, but given that he “is communicating now,” he likely became unconscious or was unable to communicate effectively prior.
In Atlanta, Foxx collaborates with Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close on the film “Back in Action.”
Apart from being a talented actor, Jamie Foxx is also a musician and R&B singer, which many of his younger fans are unaware of.
He has five studio albums to his credit. “Peep This,” his debut album, was released in 1994 to mixed negative reviews from critics.
“Unpredictable,” his sophomore album, was released a decade later and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. In its first week, it sold nearly 600,000 album-equivalent units.
His third album, “Intuition,” was released in 2008 and was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Critics praised him for his collaborations with Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross, T.I., Ludacris, Drake, Soulja Boy, and Wiz Khalifa on “Best Night of My Life,” released in 2010.
“Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses,” his most recent album, was released in 2015 and debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 charts; like its predecessors, it received generally lukewarm reviews.
