Jamie Foxx Is 'Stable and Not in a Life-Threatening Situation Now,' Says Source
Jamie Foxx is continuing to recover in the hospital following his medical emergency last month. A source in the actor's circle tells PEOPLE that they were told "Jamie is stable and not in a life-threatening situation now." "[Doctors] are doing more tests and want to be completely sure that he will be okay before allowing him to" leave the hospital, the insider says, adding that Foxx is being advised to "keep his stress level down," when he is discharged. The source tells PEOPLE that the hospital is "the last place Jamie wants to be" despite his need for medical care. "He has a lot of projects going on," the insider says. "He gets things done; he is focused and astute. What happened to him medically is serious enough to keep him in the hospital." Another source close to Foxx and the Atlanta crew of his upcoming Netflix film Back in Action says that "everyone loves Jamie and is hoping for the best." "Everyone is thinking about him," says the latter insider. A separate film source tells PEOPLE that while Foxx is a "tough guy," his loved ones "are worried and praying for his recovery." "His family and friends are supporting him and are there for him," the film source says. "There has been no word on when he is leaving the hospital." The actor's daughter Corinne Foxx issued a statement on Instagram April 12 revealing that her dad was on the mend after facing a "medical complication" the day prior. "We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday," shared Corinne, 29, in a statement written on behalf of the Foxx family. "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 statement read in addition. "The family asks for privacy during this time." PEOPLE confirmed that his incident did not happen while he was on the set of his upcoming film Back in Action, and he was not transported to the hospital by emergency vehicle. Foxx, who stars in Back in Action opposite Cameron Diaz, has received a plethora of well wishes from fans, friends and family since news of his health complication was made public.
