Academy Award-winning actor, Jamie Foxx went to Instagram the other day to pay tribute to his younger sister, Deidra Foxx, who is a famous makeup artist in Hollywood. Foxx posted a photo of Deidra, the stylist working on a great number of Marvel films such as ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ and ‘Black Panther,’ and began his message by saying that he would like to give “a beautiful shout out” to the sister.
The ‘Uncharted’ star first introduced Deidra by stating that he has “watched her grow from a little girl in the hood to doing hair for the biggest movies on the planet” then revealed that she has been tested both emotionally and physically for years.
Without mentioning his other sister, DeOndra Dixon‘s passing, he said Deidra is great support for the entire family. As widely known, Dixon, who had down syndrome, passed away on October 19, at the age of 36. The devastating news was delivered by Foxx himself with an Instagram post that says, “Deondra has transitioned” and his heart is totally broken.
In his message devoted to Deidra, the actor continued:
“We have been hit with unimaginable hardships during this pandemic… The pain has been excruciating for all of us… But she has held us together with her love and her wisdom… When I say I love her to the moon and back it’s not enough…”
Foxx, who is working to create The DeOndra Dixon Fund in partnership with the Global Down Syndrome Foundation in honor of his late sister, asked his fans and followers to send good vibes to the famous stylist. He concluded his message as follows:
“Tears in my eyes right now… @frequency11 is her IG if you would like to give her a shout #sister And she is beautiful in this picture by the way.”
