Michael Jai White recently revealed his oldest son died from COVID-19 “just a few months ago” at age 38.
In an interview on VLAD TV, Michael opened up about his son, who was born when the actor was just 15-years-old.
He said “they grew up at the same time,” however, his son, who resided in Connecticut, struggled with substance abuse and living the street life.
Unfortunately, he was still kinda out there in the streets hustling, wasn’t doing well, started getting on substances. He’d come out, go back in, all that type of stuff.
Michael Jai White shared that his son became ill and was hospitalized “for a while” before he passed.
Ultimately, when he got sick and went to the hospital, COVID was waiting for him.
That was the knockout blow.
Michael said his son’s health was “compromised” from the drug abuse and he wasn’t vaccinated.

My condolences and prayers to Michael and his family.
