Hollywood star and singer Jamie Foxx is reportedly battling for his life. The actor has been hospitalised for a month now, and there is little word on what's actually happened to him as news on his health has been kept under wraps.

With fans raising concerns about Jamie's wellbeing, his daughter, Corinne Foxx, said in a statement last month that he is getting all the medical attention that is required. 

Her statement read, "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. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time." 

But the latest news has sparked rumours that all may not be well with the Spider-Man: No Way Home actor.

An insider has reportedly revealed to Radar Online that it was "touch and go" for Jamie for days and that he had to be "revived". The source added that he is "very lucky to be alive".

The insider pointed out that even though people have been saying that Jamie is fine, he wouldn't need to be in the hospital for so long if that were true.

"His friends and family are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst," the source said. 

A week ago, there was a post on Jamie's official Instagram page, with the simple message, "Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed." It cannot be confirmed if Jamie himself posted the message or someone else did it on his behalf.

Ellen DeGeneres is among the many people to comment on the post. She replied, "I’m sending love to you every single day."

Fans have further reason to worry since Jamie’s former girlfriend, Katie Holmes, whom he dated for six years, is concerned for him. 

It should be noted that even after their breakup, Katie and Jamie stayed in touch, and Katie has always cared for him.
