Jamie Foxx’s family has issued a sad health update as the star remains in hospital

The Django Unchained star, 55, is one of the most gifted celebrities in the world – as he’s known for his acting, singing and comedic talents.

Foxx won an Oscar for his performance as Ray Charles in the film Ray and topped the charts with Kanye West on the song ‘Gold Digger’.

However, fans have been left concerned for the Spider-Man: No Way Home star after he’s been admitted to the hospital.

Foxx remains in a Georgia hospital following a ‘medical complication’ – with the facility still running tests trying to come to the bottom of the mysterious condition, reports CNN.

A source close to the Day Shift actor tells the outlet: “They are running tests and still trying to figure out what exactly happened.”

While he remains hospitalised, a source also tells People that the actor is ‘steadily improving’.

Foxx was taken into the hospital on April 11 while in Atlanta.

Following Foxx’s hospitalisation, TMZ reported that the actor’s condition was so serious that it forced his family – some of which were not in town – to visit him at the hospital.

With news breaking about the Robin Hood star’s hospitalisation, his daughter, Corrine Foxx, shared a statement updating fans on his condition.

The Instagram post reads: “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.”

Corrine, who is an actress herself, goes on to thank fans for their thoughts and prayers before asking for privacy during this period.

Despite Foxx’s improving condition, there’s no word yet on when he will be able to leave the hospital.

The Sleepless actor is currently working on the Netflix action-comedy movie Back in Action, alongside Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close.

Filming was temporarily shut down following news of Foxx’s health but it has reportedly since resumed and it is set to wrap up next week.

It’s believed that a stand-in has been used for scenes including the Collateral star but extras were told that a scene was scrapped due to ‘changes in production’, according to People.

Production on the film has already been met with a series of mishaps – including shooting being postponed in London after an unexploded WWII bomb was apparently discovered on set.

A source also tells The Sun that Foxx had a ‘major meltdown’ over some ‘issues on set’ and four of the production staff were allegedly fired.
