Jamie Foxx is taking time to honor a special loved one. The Oscar winner gave sister Deidra Dixon a shoutout in a heartfelt Instagram post for her birthday this week, thanking her for being not only a powerful source of support and inspiration, but ultimately saving his life. “[W]ithout you I would not be here… Had you not made the decisions that you made I would’ve lost my life…. I love you forever and ever happy birthday sis,” he wrote, captioning a series of photos of Deidra including a snap of them smiling together. Jamie’s tribute comes a week after he spoke out about his recent medical scare, sharing in an emotional video message why he initially held back on giving health updates and crediting Deidra and daughter Corrine Foxx for stepping in when he needed urgent help.
