Forgotten Roots Of A Slave Star?
He may have given Jaime Foxx life, but that doesn’t mean the actor will grant Shaheed Abdullah his dying wish. That’s because sources say Foxx refuses to let bygones be bygones over his parents’ choice to let him be raised by his grandparents. Now, sources say the 45-year-old actor remains distant from his 74-year-old ailing father – who only wants to see his son before he passes on.
Here’s what Foxx’s stepmother, Hellema Abdullah told the National Enquirer:
“We’ve called Jamie several times over the years and left hundreds of messages, but he has never returned our calls. Now his father is sick with severe scar tissue on his lungs and has to be on oxygen every day. I just wish Jamie would call.
Jamie had kept in periodic contact with his father because his grandmother, who raised him, had encouraged it. But he hasn’t spoken to him since his grandmother died in 2004. Jamie doesn’t plan on calling Shaheed anytime soon.
He’s getting revenge by abandoning his father, much like his dad did to him years ago. His father is going to get worse, and Jamie doesn’t care.”
Here’s what the “Django: Unchained” actor previously said about his parents:
“I still ask myself why they didn’t want me. Maybe they weren’t ready to raise a child. Was it too inconvenient? I lived just up the street from them. I’ll never understand it.”
Is Jamie Foxx acting like an emotional and stubborn girly-man? I don’t know, but next time I see Jamie Foxx’s homeboy, Tyrin Turner, I’ll ask him?
