Jamie Foxx Refusing to Visit Dying Father


Jamie Foxx's deep dark family secret is that his mom and dad were very young when he was born and they didn't raise him. Instead Jamie was raised by his mother's grandmother while his parents went on with their lives.

Apparently Jamie's never gotten over it...

From The National Enquirer
Jamie’s 74-year-old father is said to be devastated because the Oscar-winning actor has repeatedly rebuffed efforts to patch up the feud. “We’ve called Jamie several times over the years and left hundreds of messages,” the actor’s stepmother Hellema Abdullah told The ENQUIRER.
“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,” revealed an insider. “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.”
But Hellema insists Shaheed was good to Jamie when he was younger and is baffled why he is still holding a grudge against his dad while helping out his mother Louise.
“His father is going to get worse,” she said, “and Jamie doesn’t care.”

Very young when he was born..... Um Jaime Foxx is 46. his father is 74. That puts him at 28 when Jaime wwas born. Old enough to take care of your child.

Im not saying that Jamie is right for holding a grudge, but it is very hard to get over sometimes...its something that can only be helped with counseling, that is not a chip that you can brush of your shoulder without professional help.

Oh well. When parents look out for only themselves and burden their children with pain; they reap just what they sow. Real life lesson that "parents" these days still don't understand. Take care of the babies you lay down and have!

If Jaime Foxx wasn't "Jamie Foxx", would he be reaching out to him? I hate to hear when parents didn't do shyt for their kids when they were growing up, but as soon as that child makes it in is world, the parent wants to put them on blast for not wanting anything to do with them. They wait until they're dying to start reaching out and mend fences - or to clear their own selfish conscious.

Note to current and soon to be deadbeat parents: You never know what your child will grow up to be. It is YOUR responsibility to love and care for them when they need you the most if you expect them to return the favor in the future when you need them the most.

Everybody does things they later regret in life, his father is probably on his death-bed I think he should forgive him if nothing but for karma's sake.

Who wants to live the rest of their life knowing their dying father wanted to make amends and you denied him the opportunity. Like Oprah said, forgiveness is more for you than the other person. What purpose does it serve to hold on to bitterness serve anyway.

Its not easy for a child to get over being abandoned by their parents. Even if said child is now and adult. Sounds like he kept in contact out of respect for his grandmother and ONLY for that reason. Its foul when parents who fucked up want to pull the "But I'm old and sick" card.

If this is true I dont blame him. He kept his word to the mother who really raised him, he made something of himself but he doesnt owe them a thing my question is what were his parents up to while they "carried on their lives"?

@11:10, why should the CHILD care about denying the parent anything - even if that child is now an adult? It's clear the parent didn't think about all the things that child was being denied with their absence. The "karma" is not on the child, it's on the parent. The child didn't ask to be here.

Forgiveness is for YOU not the other person. Jaime will be doing himself a favor by visiting ole dad. Dad is Already suffering and might suffer more in the afterlife.

There was a lady whose son committed suicide and he haunted her until he got the message across to her that he was so sorry and that he was in torment on the other side. He said it was the worst mistake ever. So for all those who think hell aint real....

FUCK THAT!!!!! I dont blame Jamie, Im far from famous BUT I know exactly how he feels. Im 36 years old right now. My mother had 3 kids by 3 different men and she chose to abandon her kids to chase after a married man. Since she had 3 different fathers my two other siblings fathers came and took custody of them, my father did not so as a result I had to grow up living in and out of foster and group homes until I turned 18.

I have lived my ENTIRE life with NO family and no real friends. I lived in 8 different foster homes and they were all horrible. They did not attempt to "bond" with the foster kids, they just wanted that check. So when I "aged out" of the foster care system I was COMPLETELY ALONE IN THE WORLD!!!!!!

My mother was not a crack head or anything like that, she just didnt want her kids. She was a selfish, hateful BITCH that shudda never had kids. Parents dont realize what they do to their kids and how what they do can affect their kids entire lives. Kids dont owe their deadbeat parents SHIT! Including forgiveness!

Like 11:04 said "When parents look out for only themselves and burden their children with pain; they reap just what they sow". Fuck my momma and Fuck Jamie"s dying daddy!!!!!

Anonymous said...

@11:16: i agree with you. HELL, karma is ocurring to his parents as we speak. They carried on without him, and now that they are reaching out he doesnt give 2 shits. They reaped - this is what they sowed. I wouldnt be surprised if it also has to do with money for funeral arrangements. Smh

Men, please dont wait until it looks like your kid's going to be famous before you decide you want a relationship.

We were talking about this in the shop and of course, all men talk like they see their kids every day and do this and that for them. I made the comment that I have no relationship with mine and I dont want one. The feeling of no one wanting you, or your parent doesn't want you NEVER leaves. As successful as Jamie is, he will never get over both parents leaving him to be raised by his granny.

Kids dont want toys, money, clothes, etc. They just want that parent. It's y'all against the work, broke down sleepign in ur car and all. But the kid just want the parent. Too little too late for you and ya scar tissue.

Fuck that. Go to your grave knowing I didn't give a shit about u just like u didn't me. My paternal grandmother had 1 favorite grandchild, and it wasn't me or any of the other 20.

I didn't hate her, but I knew she didn't like me. I remember my bday passing and got nothing, but when my brother's bday came he got a card and money from her. TRUE STORY. Her funeral came and went. Guess who stayed at work like it was just another day living in the fuckin' hood?

God bless you all who like Jamie have had to grow up with selfish parents. It is hard to forgive after such pain, but God forgives you after sin. You should at least try forgiving your dead beat parents so that you will be blessed. Bar the bitterness from your hearts and be healed. Peace & blessings.

Dotty how do you make the flower?

AlWel said...

Well as someone who went through this less than a month ago I will say that no one knows how they are approaching Jamie. It's all fun and games to say "fuck them kids" and live your life but don't expect those same kids to come running when you on your death bed trying to get into heaven and get over your guilt. To me that is still selfish. You don't really care about making amends b/c if you did you would have called prior to getting sick instead of trying to use the kid to make you feel better.

But for all you ppl that say you shouldnt "hold on to grudges" and you need to "let go in order to heal" need to understand something, just because a person CHOOSES not to fuck with their parents DONT MEAN they're "holding on to grudges"

I dont want ANYTHING to do with my parents! But Im not bitter or "angry" or "holding on to the past" they treated me like shit my entire life so now as an adult, i have chosen to cut their negative asses out of my life. For good! Hearing them apologize 20 years later will never change what they did. The damage is done!

Sometimes not wanting nothing to do with the parent that wronged you, is the ONLY WAY TO TRULY HEAL!!!

For those who have not been through this.

It's not a grudge you hold. It's a void that you have lived with and grew past. So when you learn to not miss what you don't have as a child into adulthood. The "parent" can't expect some sort of connection later in life. That person is no longer a parent. That person is a stranger. It's is not the child's responsibility to make that person feel better about decisions that he/she made.

If the parent really cared he/she would thank God that the child made it inspite of their foolishness. And just be happy with that.

Jamie, I know when you have been hurt it's hard to forgive but, unforgiveness is Spiritual Poison. Some people ruin their health and their lives living with bitterness, resentment and unforgiveness. God deals with those who hurt us if, we put them in His hands through forgiveness.

When people harbor unforgiveness never letting go of past hurts, anger, and bitterness, it always hinder your relationship with God. Unforgiveness doesn't hurt the offender it hurts you. Carrying around bitterness only weighs you down. God has already blessed you!!! despite of being abandoned by your parents. I hope you will find it in your heart, to forgive and visit your dad on his dying bed.

Maybe Jamie has forgiven his father; he just chooses not to fuck with him. The father may be looking for something that Jamie may not be able to give him. If dad wants forgiveness, he should do his own soul searching and let it be. Its much more damaging to beat yourself over the head about things you can't control.

Anonymous said...

Why do people always equate forgiveness with giving the person a pass for what they did? The forgiveness is so you can move on in peace and not hold on to the pain/bitterness of the past. It releases that negative emotional energy that keeps you tied to the situation.

His father will probably be dead soon, what is the emotional payoff in not hearing his father out? Revenge? Tit-for tat? It'll probably be heavier to walk around without a sense of closure after he dies than to just make amends..it happened, it hurt, I don't have to like it, but I forgive you and I'm moving on with my life.

Form a personal experience, Id say Jaime should meet his dad and forgive him. My mother abandoned me at 9 months old, I was adopted and found my mother 19 years later when she was terminallly ill. It was hard but i decided to meet with her for the first time and although she never apologised for abandoning me, I felt at peace with myself afterwards and think that i would have regretted it highly if i did not.

I bet if his grandmother was still living he'd visit him one last time before he dies. Harboring bitterness in your heart just keeps you stuck.

Strawberries said...

Jamie is not holding a grudge and what make you think that his hasn't moved on? Jamie's conscious is clear and he made peace with the fact that his birth parents abandoned him a long time ago. Jamie is not trying to punish his dying father, Jamie has "let go" of this man and when I mean let go I mean all the way.

Too bad this example won't serve as a cautionary tale to deadbeat parents as to the unforgivable damage that is done to children when they decide to abandon them.

Instead of blowing up Jamie's phone and leaving messages that won't be returned, his father is the one who need to "let go" and accept that he abandoned his son and this is the unfortunate result of his selfish actions.

Exactly 1:22 and 12:13! Many people are confused about what forgiveness is. Forgiveness isn't being friends with someone and skinning and grinning with them. Sometimes it's just letting things go and moving on. Oprah said forgiveness is accepting that things can't be any different than they were. Like people above pointed out, forgiveness is for you. So you don't have to "meet w/" someone to forgive them.

Did it ever occur to anyone that maybe Jamie doesn't love his father like that, because dude was never in his life enough to LOVE him?

I wouldn't cry for the death of any of my uncles or aunts, because I don't know them like that. It's like telling me your co-worker's mom just died and you're like "Awww, that's sad. My condolences."

Jamie didn't stay in tough with his father out of love, it was to PLEASE HIS GRANDMOTHER. Once she died, there was no reason to anymore and I don't blame him.

Too many no good mofos want to start claiming kids they never bothered with once they become successful. Shaq's pops tried that shit and Shaq properly told him to get fucking lost. Oprah's real pops is probably out there wondering if he fucked Oprah's hoe mama in the fields of Georgia (or wherever Oprah's from) to see if he might cash in, but his old probably can't remember now. LOL!

I side with Jamie. I, too, had to distance myself from my father, because he was a very toxic and nasty individual even when there was no cause to be. I was like "No, I refuse to do this anymore." and maybe spoke to him once a year, if that.

This happy Disney family is bullshit and always has been. Yes, there are "some" that can get down like this, but moreso, it leans the other way.

Personally, deathbed confessions, apologies and such are for the birds. You wont even be around to face the consequence of such revelations. Kinda punkish to me. Jaime already forgave the man, just not to his face..and just llike someone said above, Jaime survived his parents foolishness and his pops should be happy with just that.

I know what it's like being raised by your grandparents, being full of so much rage because your parents didn't care enough to show up to school, sign your report cards, make sure you had food on your stomach! smh


Pain like that may subside but it never goes away, because most of us don't get counseling, and don't know how to turn things over to God. So we grow up, but that little neglected kid still lives with us

I remember being embarrassed having my grandmother show up to school and everyone thinking she was my mom! Not realizing some people didn't even have a grandmother to look after them, I am grateful now.

As a father himself Jamie should know to put the past to rest and although I ain't saying he got to be his fathers best friend - he can at least at the end come to terms with the situation and say goodbye.... my daughter's father was absent most of her life too but when he developed brain cancer even though my then 18 year old daughter wanted no part I encouraged her to see him and to talk to him before he died and to this day she thanks me that although she didn't get all the answers she did at least get some form of peace...

Further more if Jamie's father isn't willing to speak publicly about it why is his new wife even opening her mouth. I would shade the dad for saying anything but it's even worse when someone who has no direct family tie to him has the nerve to say something. People who think the fact that they birthed a child but did nothing to raise them gives them some sort of right over that child after they're an adult really irk my nerves.

I really think people get the meaning of forgiveness mixed up or twist it's true meaning. Forgiveness in the bible is to help YOU and your relationship with god. It doesn't mean submitting yourself to the whims of someone that is neglectful or abusive. Going to see his sick father is going to do what exactly? Make his father feel better. Why does he deserve that?There is nothing his father can say that will fix the hurt and pain that he caused.Maybe Jamie is happy and he feels like going to see this selfish person is going to mess up his joy.

why jamies grandparents allowed jamaies parents to simply leave him to raised by them is beyond me. if i were the grandparents, his parents would not have been allowed to just drop their child on me and they in turn would have to raise him/her themselves. i would help of course but they would not be allowed to simply leave their child on me. that said, I hate when people do this. they bring innocent children into the world before they are ready and when they decide that they do not want the responsibility they drop them on another relative; that relative usually being the grand parent/s. and why? because although they do not want to take care of the child they don't want to live with the guilt of not knowing what happened to them after giving them away. its not right, and its not fair. keep your damn legs closed use protection if your gonna fork.

I can understand where he's coming from. I haven't seen my father since over 10 years ago. We have the same birthday. I would think that would be enough to remember your kids birthday but no. It's very difficult to feel unloved by a parent. When I was little he would leave me n the car to get pissy drunk n the bar or just disappear n get high somewhere. Even when he finally got himself back together, he never came to see me, call me, n that shit hurts. People deal with abandonment differently. I just graduated with a bachelors, I have gotten full scholarships and have my own car like I did all the things he said I should do when I was younger but it sucks b/c I look n the mirror n see his face but he wants nothing to do with me. If I found out he was really sick or dying, I mean biologically speaking thats my father but sperm donor is pretty much where it ends. When it comes to being the bigger person, that should never apply to a child and parent relationship. The parent is always supposed to be the bigger person and if you have it in your heart to abandon your own seed, to not care about them until they become famous, I think that's just being selfish. Sounds like his father doesn't wanna die knowing he didn't do what to many is the most important thing in life: RAISING YOUR CHILD!

Anonymous said...

@5:41 PM This is true. The Bible is very explicit about forgiveness. The scripture says you're supposed to forgive 70X70. It does not mention that you have to have a relationship with that person or be best friends with someone who hurt you and treated you badly. Jaime has moved on. His father should concentrate on getting saved and making peace with God so he won't spend eternity in hell. This stepmother needs to mind her own business.

Jamie Foxx talked about his relationship with his father on Foxxhole Radio a few years ago. Apparently, he did try to reach out a few times, but his father's demons stood in the way of a full reconciliation. His mother, on the other hand, moved in with Foxx in California, as did his two half-sisters.

It's not cool that the family is dragging this thing into the public to try and embarrass Foxx- his relationship, or lack thereof, with his father is his and his alone, and "the world at large" shouldn't be allowed to judge it on incomplete information.
