Cameron Diaz has not spoken to her longtime friend and co-star Jamie Foxx since his mysterious hospitalization in April – and she has ‘no clue’ what will happen to their joint film Back In Action, which was already plagued with complications.
A close friend of the 50-year-old actress tells DailyMail.com exclusively that ‘Cameron has not spoken to Jamie at all and does not know anything other than what she hears.’ The A-listers were shooting scenes together days before he was hospitalized.
Cameron has since wrapped filming for her ‘comeback’ project, but the insider says that she may not be coming back at all due to the series of unfortunate events that transpired since she decided to return to her acting shoes.
‘Cameron has not signed on for another film and is not currently taking any new scripts,’ the pal revealed. ‘Honestly, she is not sure what is going on with Back In Action and isn’t very proud of it, considering there was so much drama even before Jamie was hospitalized.’
Cameron was ready to quit acting for a second time when problems started occurring behind the scenes of Back In Action. The ongoing issues are said to have caused Cameron and Jamie to get into heated arguments on-set.
Their disagreements were reportedly never resolved prior to Jamie’s hospitalization, and now the friend says that Cameron is suffering from huge ‘guilt’ over the fact that she and her pal never ‘made amends’.
‘Cameron feels a tremendous sense of guilt now about their quarrels since she has not been able to make amends,’ the insider shared.
Representatives for Cameron and Jamie did not respond to requests for comment.
Although filming for Back In Action is finished, the source added that there are ‘major setbacks in post production’ for the Netflix-funded movie, noting that even Cameron isn’t sure what will happen with the project.
Jamie was an executive producer on the film and producers have been at a stand-still in recent weeks due to the uncertainty of his condition.
In March, Jamie allegedly ‘had an absolute meltdown’ while the film was shooting in the UK, which led to the firing of multiple people, including an executive producer, two directors and his own driver.
There was even more drama when it was revealed that production was paused last month after an unexploded WWII-era bomb was discovered on the film’s set in London, just before two major action scenes were set to be filmed.
Aside from ‘hating the drama and confrontation’ on set, she also didn’t like the 12-hour workdays that kept her from her husband Benji Madden, 44, and their daughter Raddix.
Fans were initially alerted about Jamie’s health scare when his daughter Corinne Foxx shared a statement on social media on April 12.
Corinne wrote, ‘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,’ the statement concluded.
In an Instagram post on May 3, his family posted on his profile said: ‘Appreciate all the love!!! Feeling blessed’ followed by praying hands, heart and fox emojis.
It’s unclear if Jamie himself made the post. At that point, no further details on his condition had been shared, leading to speculation about how serious his illness is.
One week later, an unnamed source shared on social media that Jamie’s situation was dire. ‘He wouldn’t be in a hospital this long if he was anything close to okay. His friends and family are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst!’
Corinne was quick to fire back. Sharing the statement from the unnamed source on her Instagram, she wrote, ‘Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild.’
‘My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!’
Since then, Jamie’s family has been seen numerous times visiting a medical facility in Chicago, which specializes in treatment for adults with ‘severe complex conditions’, including stroke recovery.
In addition to Corinne, Jamie’s good friend Dave Brown was also seen visiting the facility and spent time chatting to Corinne before going to visit the star.
Corrine was pictured arriving at the facility, which is touted as the top rehabilitation center in the country, for ‘the most severe, complex conditions’.
On May 23, ex-boxer Mike Tyson said that Jamie may have suffered a stroke during his appearance on the Valuetainment podcast.
‘He’s not feeling well. They said a stroke. I have no idea what happened to him,’ Mike said.
Claims on social media that Jamie was left seriously ill due to a Covid-19 vaccine went viral recently, with notable right-wing figures such as Candace Owens backing it up.
Jamie’s reps denied the accusations and said that they were ‘untrue’ – but did not reveal what his health scare was caused by.
Last week, John Boyega, 32 – who starred alongside Jamie in his latest Netflix film They Cloned Tyrone – expressed great concern for Jamie at the film’s premier in Florida.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, John said, ‘No one has heard from Jamie. I wanted him to show up here, but you know, I know he’s dealing with what he’s dealing with. I just wish him all the best.’
Saying that there has been some ‘missed calls’ from himself to Jamie, he added: ‘I’ve been calling, I am just going to keep on calling.’
