Oscar nominated actor Will Smith’s father has passed, according to People.
While Will has yet to release a public statement, his ex-wife of 3 years, Sheree Fletcher, posted this endearing Instagram post, affectionately calling him ‘Daddio.’
“We’re gonna miss you Daddio! You lived & played by your own rules…you truly were 1 of a kind!,” Fletcher wrote. “You instilled discipline, and a work ethic that has created a legacy in your honor!”
The photo included Will Smith with Will Sr and the son he shares with Sheree, Trey.
