Jamie Foxx is being praised this morning after saving the life of a driver whose car almost went up in flames.

TMZ first broke the story, Foxx pulled a man from a burning car on Monday night around 8:30 p.m after the vehicle crashed right in front of his Hidden Hills home.

According to law enforcement, the car hit a ditch, flipped upside down and ended up right in front of the actor’s gate. Apparently, Foxx ran outside to see what happened, only to find the driver still buckled in.

In fear that the car would explode, Jamie called 9-1-1 and then proceeded to pull the driver from the car and dragged him nearly 30 feet.

First responders arrived to the scene and transported the victim to the hospital with major injuries and burns.

Jamie has not responded to heroic act via social media, but we are positive the driver’s family will be doing all they can to thank Jamie for saving their loved ones life.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
