Will Smith’s father Willard Carroll Smith Sr has died.
The 48-year-old actor’s ex-wife Sheree Fletcher – who he was married to from 1992 to 1995 – confirmed the passing of Willard Carroll Smith, Sr., on Monday.
Posting a picture of Will and his father along with Will and Sheree’s son Trey, 23, she paid a touching tribute, while Will is yet to confirm the news himself.
She wrote on Instagram: ‘We’re gonna miss you Daddio! You lived & played by your own rules…
‘You truly were 1 of a kind! You instilled discipline, and a work ethic that has created a legacy in your honor!’
The picture shows Hollywood actor Will on the right of his father, and 23-year-old Try in the middle.
