It has been three weeks since Jamie Foxx was rushed to the hospital following a “medical complication” and details are still unclear as to what exactly it was and what shape the actor is in, with updates few and far between. However, TMZ reports that those close to the Oscar winner are now asking fans to “Pray for Jamie.”

While this may seem like a dire request, a source told People last month, “He’s OK, thank God…He’s still in the hospital and doctors are running tests but he’s awake and alert. They’re keeping him under observation.” Still, coupled with the “Pray for Jamie” comment, one wonders just what sort of update will be provided the next time we hear about Jamie Foxx. After all, three weeks in the hospital despite being “awake and alert” may cause some concern for fans.

The incident occurred on April 11th while Foxx was filming his latest movie, Back in Action, which also co-stars Cameron Diaz in her return to the big screen in almost 10 years, having taken a hiatus to spend more time with her family. While Diaz returned to set, Jamie Foxx was replaced with a stunt and body double to help wrap production. Also as a result of his condition, Foxx has been replaced as the host for the next season of Beat Shazam, the Fox game show that pits contestants against the music-identifying app. Foxx’s daughter, Corinne, will also be stepping away from the show for the time being.

At the time of being taken to the hospital, Jamie Foxx’s daughter provided an update for fans: “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. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time. Much love, The Foxx family.”

No release date has been set for Back in Actionalthough it is expected to hit Netflix in late 2023 or early 2024.
