Jamie Foxx was hospitalized after a 'medical emergency,' rep says

The actor is "communicating now" after the emergency Tuesday morning.

Jamie Foxx is communicating again after he was hospitalized for a "medical emergency" Tuesday morning, a representative said Wednesday.

"His condition was serious enough that Jamie's family, some of whom were not in town, came to the hospital," the representative said. "He is communicating now."

Foxx, 55, is in Atlanta working on the movie "Back in Action" with Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close, the representative said.

Foxx's daughter Corinne Foxx said in a statement on Instagram earlier Wednesday that "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,” it concludes.

No additional information on Jamie Foxx’s medical complication was provided. Comments were also restricted on Corinne Foxx’s post.
