Jamie Foxx, the acclaimed actor and singer, is heartbroken after the passing of his dear friend, Keith Jefferson. Keith, an actor and voiceover artist, had been battling cancer and sadly lost his fight. Jamie took to Instagram to pay a heartfelt tribute to Keith, sharing cherished photos of their time together.

In his emotional post, Jamie described Keith as a person of absolute grace, with a pure heart and immeasurable love. He expressed his deep sadness and emphasized that it will take a long time for the healing process to begin. Jamie ended his tribute with a heartfelt goodbye, proclaiming his love for his friend.

Keith’s journey with cancer began on August 9, when he shared the news of his diagnosis with a photo of himself in a hospital bed. He initially kept the diagnosis private but eventually felt ready to share his story, as his faith grew stronger. Keith expressed his gratitude for his loving family, best friends, and the unwavering support they provided during this challenging time.

In a later post, Keith thanked Jamie and their friend Rodney Mason, acknowledging their unmatched admiration and the impact they had on his life. Keith and Jamie had the opportunity to work together on several films, including the critically acclaimed “Django Unchained” (2012), “The Hateful Eight” (2015), and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (2019) directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Tragically, Keith’s passing comes just before the release of his final film, “The Burial,” in which he worked alongside Jamie and Tommy Lee Jones. Despite the grief Jamie is experiencing, he expressed gratitude for the opportunity to work on this project with an amazing group of actors.

This loss deeply affects Jamie, as it comes six months after he went through a personal health scare. In April, Jamie was hospitalized, but the details remain undisclosed. In a vulnerable Instagram video, Jamie shared his gratitude for his sister, Deidra Dixon, and his daughter, Corinne, for their unwavering support that saved his life. He expressed his profound appreciation for God’s guidance and the dedicated medical professionals who aided in his recovery.

Jamie acknowledged the curiosity of his fans, but he wanted to maintain his privacy during his tough moments, focusing on his wellbeing rather than seeking attention. Recently, he shared another video expressing his gratitude for the outpouring of support and revealing that he can finally “see the light” after months of dealing with his mysterious illness.

Jamie Foxx’s journey of grief and recovery reminds us of the importance of the support we receive from our loved ones during challenging times. Let us cherish our friends and family as we navigate the ups and downs of life together.
