Family

Parents

Father

Darrell Bishop (biological father)

Foxx lacked the resolve to reconcile with his biological father. Darrell Bishop abandoned the child when he was about 7 months old. He later became a Muslim and changed his name to Shaheed Abdullah. Shaheed married again, this time to Hellema. Following that, Jamie saw his father on occasion (mostly to satisfy his grandmother’s insistence that he do so). They lost touch in the early 2000s, and Jamie didn’t even attend his father’s burial (which took place in 2013).
