Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx has paid tribute to his sister on the second anniversary of her death.
The Oscar-winning star, 54, announced in October 2020 that DeOndra Dixon had died aged 36.
He marked the anniversary by sharing a series of photos of them together on Instagram.
He wrote: “Deondra I know ur in heaven making everyone laugh… and have everyone dancing to your songs.
“I miss you terribly, but I know that your soul is shining bright. I love u forever.”

He wrote: “My heart is shattered into a million pieces… my beautiful loving sister Deondra has transitioned…
“I say transitioned because she will always be alive… anyone who knew my sis… knew that she was a bright light…”
