Jamie Foxx’s longtime friend pleads for prayers as star remains hospitalized 3 weeks after ‘medical complication’

Jamie Foxx remains hospitalized more than three weeks after suffering a “medical complication,” and now one of his closest friends is making a public appeal asking for prayers for the 55-year-old.

On April 12 his daughter Corinne Foxx revealed the actor was hospitalized after experiencing a medical episode. While she did not elaborate on what led to his hospitalization she said “due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.”

However, as the star remains hospitalized at an undisclosed hospital in Atlanta, sources close to Foxx are asking for healing prayers.

“I need you all to constantly keep our beloved brotha @iamjamiefoxx up whom we all lo❤️e & care for dearly in our Hearts, Minds & Prayers!!!! We need you back Bro @iamjamiefoxx you’re fighter, strong & resilient so I know your fortitude. Your not going out like that,” Charlie Mack, a hip hop figure, film producer, and a “brother” to Foxx, wrote on Instagram.

“As I always state a true champion isn’t the one that wins, it’s the one that meets & overcomes adversity!! You’re test becomes your testimony!! We all can’t wait to receive you back home to celebrate, laugh with and applaud you!!” he continued. “With the mercy from Allah The Creator of the Heavens & Earth!!! Oh Allah I come before you yet once again humbly asking please heal & restore our brotha @iamjamiefoxx stronger & better than before!!! I have absolutely no shame in asking pleading & begging for your merciful healing powers over our brotha now in your time not ours for miracle. I must & will thank you in advance your gracious humble servant Kareem Abdullah aka Charlie Mack Ameen!”

Since news broke of Foxx’s hospitalization very little information has been released about his condition.

On April 21 a source told People the Oscar-winner was “awake and alert.”

“He’s OK, thank God,” they said. “He’s still in the hospital and doctors are running tests but he’s awake and alert. They’re keeping him under observation.”

The incident occurred while Foxx was in the middle of filming Back in Action, though he was not on set when the complication took place. And People reported he was not transported to the medical facility via emergency vehicle.

In addition to starring in the Netflix film, Foxx is also the host of the game show Beat Shazam on FOX. The show was set to go into production days before he was hospitalized.

TMZ reported Foxx won’t appear on this season nor will his daughter Corinne who was a DJ for the show.


Although we don’t know what is wrong with Jamie Foxx I hope he fully recovers. Let’s all pray for his healing.
