Foxx ex-girlfriend, actress Katie Holmes is apparently “deeply concerned” about her former lover of nearly six years, per Radar Online.

It’s been two weeks since Foxx’s oldest daughter Corinne Foxx shared a post on Instagram notifying fans of her father’s status. Without disclosing his condition, she informed social media that he had a “medical complication” on April 12. At the time, she stated that he was in “recovery.”

“@iamjamiefoxx is a real one!!! And he deserves to live for a long time,” Mack wrote on April 14. @iamjamiefoxx holds everyone down all the time!!!Now let’s do the same.”

Foxx was reportedly rushed to the hospital on April 11 and according to TMZ, several family members came in town to visit him. A source told the outlet he was “communicating,” suggesting he may have been unable to speak at one point.

Gossip of the City Tea issued an Instagram post on April 13 saying Foxx “suffered a stroke and required surgery. He’s stable for now,” but no evidence has emerged to substantiate that claim, nor did Gossip of the City Tea cite any.

He was “steadily improving” within days and by April 26, mutiple outlets began reporting that Foxx was ‘lucky to be alive.’ Doctors had to revive him after he was reportedly “touch and go for days.”

“Jamie suffered a serious medical episode and needed immediate attention,” an insider told Radar Online. “He’s very lucky he got the treatment he did.”

Since then there have been few public updates about the R&B singer’s recovery process.

Foxx was in Atlanta filming his new movie “Back in Action” with Cameron Diaz and Glenn Close. As executive producer, he reportedly had a “major meltdown” on set and fired four staffers. After a series of delays, production moved forward with a stunt double in the 55-year-old’s place.

Many are praying and hoping for Foxx’s speedy recovery.
