Jamie Foxx isn't averse to using his celebrity friends to help him out when it comes to parenting his daughter, Corinne Foxx.

Jamie and Corinne have created and co-produced their own sitcom, "Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!," which Jamie also stars in. But it seems that Foxx's real-life parenting style may have influenced the Netflix show.

On April 7's episode of E! News' "Daily Pop," Jamie Foxx said that when Corinne started dating guys, he turned into a "private eye."

"By the time she got the person there, I already knew everything about him," Foxx said.

There was one time, however, when Foxx's celebrity pal Snoop Dogg was at his house - and Foxx asked Snoop to intimidate the date on his behalf.

"So, she brings the guy by to the crib and I said, 'Yo, Snoop, there he is right there. Shake him up.' [He said] 'Hey, what's up, nephew? You understand what's going on right now?'" the 53-year-old actor said.

Luckily for the date, Foxx thought "the dude was solid" and handled Snoop's intimidation tactics pretty well.

"He was like, 'I see what's going on. I'm chill.' Good, great on that," Foxx said. But while this particular date seemed to pass the test, Foxx warned to future dates: "They have to know that if something is going wrong that, hey, something might come to you."

Foxx, who has been working on getting ripped to play Mike Tyson in a biopic, said: "Daughters are special, man. As a father, you want that person who is dating your daughter to know that there quite possibly might be a chance that they won't survive life."

Corinne Foxx is now 27, and has been working in the industry as an actress and producer since 2013. Foxx's second daughter, 11-year-old Annalise Bishop, may yet experience Foxx and Snoop's tactics when she grows older.

This story could feature in "Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!" - the show is based on the Foxxs' lives, and the father said that his character in the show is "all the way [him]." The Netflix show will premiere on April 14.
