Actor Jamie Foxx is recovering from an undisclosed “medical complication” according to his daughter, Corinne Foxx,. The 55-year-old star is currently filming the Netflix movie Back in Action in Atlanta, alongside Glenn Close and Cameron Diaz. TMZ reported that Foxx was hospitalized after a “medical emergency,” citing sources with direct knowledge.

Corinne Foxx posted on Instagram: “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.” The family did not share any further details, and asked for prayers and privacy.

Foxx has been working on Back in Action in London and Atlanta since earlier this year. He convinced Cameron Diaz to co-star in the film, even though Diaz had ‘semi-retired’ from acting, having last been on screen in 2014.
