Jamie Foxx was recently hospitalized for a non-specified “medical complication,” according to his daughter, Corinne Foxx. The comedian-actor is recovering following the hospitalization.

Corinne Foxx posted the news on her Instagram page on Wednesday. “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,” she wrote. “We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.”

It is unknown why Foxx’s “medical complication” was not disclosed. Alan Nierob, a spokesperson for the Academy Award-winner, told CNN that there are no intentions to release anything beyond Corinne’s IG statement, writing, “Nothing more, at this time, than what was posted.”
