“I like the way you die boy”
Jamie Foxx Allegedly Will Not Visit His Dying Father For Abandoning Him
After being given away as a child, “Django Unchained” star Jamie Foxx is reaping revenge by turning his back on his dying dad, say sources.
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’s parents, Darrell Bishop and Louise Annette Talley, were very young when he was born. Overwhelmed, they decided to let Louise’s parents adopt him, and he was raised in a strict Christian home. Meanwhile, Louise and Darrell broke up and later remarried other partners.
Jamie’s father converted to Islam, changing his name to Shaheed Abdullah, and for a while the star had minimal contact with him.
“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.”
Damn, Jamie it doesn’t have to be like that does it?!
Would you go seeing your dying parents if they had given you away as a child?
