Martin Lawrence has revealed Jamie Foxx is “doing better” following his recent medical emergency.

The 55-year-old was hospitalized in Atlanta, Georgia, where he had been filming “Back in Action,” after suffering an undisclosed “medical complication” last week.

During an interview with “Extra” at the unveiling of his Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Thursday, Lawrence offered an update on his friend’s condition.

“Well, I hear he’s doing better… My prayers go out for him every night, and just wishing the best for him,” Lawrence responded. “(He’s) one of the best that we got in Hollywood, not only one of the best entertainers but a good person.”

In a separate interview with “Access Hollywood” at the event, the “Bad Boys” star clarified that he hadn’t talked to Foxx before wishing him “a speedy recovery.”
