Donald Faison Mourns Loss of Ex-Wife Lisa Askey
Actor, comedian, and voice actor Donald Faison, known best for his role in Scrubs, Clueless, Josie and the Pussy Cats, and Remember the Titans, and also known as Zach Braff’s best friend, posted a heartbreaking photo on his Twitter account as he mourns the loss of ex-wife, Lisa Askey. The 42 year old actor and his late ex-wife share three children, Dade and Kaya both 18, and son Kobe,16.
The Scrubs star wrote, “My son Dade is very brave. Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother. Lisa Askey Faison. She and I never really saw eye to eye but one thing we did share was our love for our children. RIP Lisa. You raised three beautiful children into fine adults and I am forever grateful for that. May god bless your soul with light and love.”
Faison and Askey first met while Askey was a nursing student and were married in 2001 until their split in 2005. In 2012, Faison married reality star CaCee Cobb, after dating for six years. Cob and Faison now have two children, Wilder, 22 months, and Rocco, 3.
Fasion’s son, Dade, took to Instagram to share with those close to the family,”You have been there for me when I needed you most. I can’t believe it has come to this but I know you are in a better place right now. I love you with all my heart and one day we shall meet again. You worked so hard and never gave up no matter how hard times got. R.I.P mom and until next time! #RestInPeace #BestMom #Love.”

It’s unclear the cause of Askey’s passing and funeral arrangements have not yet been made public. Our condolences are with the Askey and Faison family.
