Little information is made public about the current condition of the sick actor Jamie Foxx (55, "Django Unchained"). On April 12, he was taken to a hospital in Georgia, where he is still, after "medical complications" while filming "Back in Action."
In the days after his admission, it was initially reported that the prominent patient was already doing better and that he only had to undergo a series of medical tests. Hollywood is concerned that he is still in the hospital more than three weeks later.
As the celebrity magazine "TMZ" reports, close friends of the superstar are now even urgently calling for prayers for him. "We have spoken to sources close to Jamie who are making the same request - 'Pray for Jamie'," it said.
The magazine leaves open the exact sources. In fact, there are a few social media posts by people close to Foxx calling for prayer for him.

On May 1, he posted a picture on Instagram with his hands clasped in prayer against a black background and the words "Pray for Foxx!!!!!!!!!".
