Foxx was hospitalized in April following a “medical complication” that his daughter Corrine Foxx shared online on behalf of the Foxx family. “We wanted to share that my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” Corinne shared in a statement on Instagram.
“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. “The family asks for privacy during this time.” Several stars publicly gave their well wishes to Foxx and his family during this time.

They Cloned Tyrone is set to be released on Netflix later this summer and also stars Teyonah Parris. The streamer describes the film as a “series of eerie events that thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy in this pulpy mystery caper.”
Juel Taylor makes his directorial debut in the series. He explained how infusing comedy and mystery has been a goal for him. “It came from two places. First, I’ve always wanted to do something in the mystery space,” Taylor explained in a statement per Vibe. “I love mystery movies and genre blends, and I wanted to do something with detectives who weren’t really the most suited to detecting. I had this joke in my mind for a while, like ‘an entrepreneur, a pro, and a hustler walk into a bar and they end up solving a mystery.’ I had this juxtaposition of characters that I wanted, but I didn’t necessarily have anything more than a tone, a vibe.”
