The film, which is the actress’s first movie since her retirement in 2014, has been embroiled in scandal.

Foxx reportedly had an on-set meltdown last month that resulted in the firing of four crew members and reportedly prompted Diaz, 50, to consider retiring again.

At that time, according to The Sun, the “Blame It” singer became the target of a $40,000 scam.

Foxx’s “Back in Action” co-stars have not commented on his hospitalization, but Kerry Washington, Nick Cannon and many more A-listers have shown their support via social media.

Lawrence, for his part, wrote that he is sending “much love and many blessings” to the comedian.
