“It was touch and go for days with him, and he had to be revived—he is very lucky to be alive! He’s very lucky he got the treatment he did,” said another insider, published on the Gulf News.

Jamie suffers from high blood pressure, which doctors say can cause clots in the brain, leading to a stroke. Doctors believe this was a long time coming, and really, if they hadn’t acted fast, Jamie might well have been a goner.”

The immense pressure and stress during the filming of Back in Action contributed to the degrading health condition of the Oscar-winning actor, pushing him to continuous meltdowns on set. He even fired some directors and his own personal driver out of frustration and tension.

“Jamie has absolutely been troubled throughout the shoot,” according to an insider. Things on set also have not been very great for Cameron Diaz because of Foxx, who is making a comeback on screen after a long time.

Following the recent report published in the People Magazine on April 25th-

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