Ice Cube’s son, Straight Outta Compton’s Oshea Jackson Jr. “is not dying.”
We are living in a world where hoaxes and rumors are rampant, forcing folks to defend themselves against outrageous and bizarre chatter. And for Oshea, his latest round of silencing gossip came after a #WeAreHereForYouShea started floating around.
“Whaaat the f*ck is this,” Jackson wrote on Instagram on Monday night. “Am I dying? Oh sh*t I better call me make sure I’m okay.”
He added, “Now that you mention it I haven’t heard from me all day. Pray for us. seriously. I’m not going through a rough time lol. Everybody got bad days y’all don’t make it a thing. I love you tho.”
It’s unclear exactly what led fans to believe the actor was in some sort of crisis, but we are glad he is well. Actually, he is probably more than well.
Oshea and his Straight Outta Compton co-stars have been big names in the latest round of award show nominations. The film picked up several nominations for NAACP Image Awards in the category for Motion Picture, and nabbed a SAG nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
