Foxx Snubs Absent Dad

Oscar winner JAMIE FOXX is resisting the chance to reunite with his father - because there are more deserving people in his life to keep close.

The RAY star's dad, who deserted the actor when he was a child, has recently got in touch with Foxx for the first time in 37 years, and was disappointed his son didn't greet him with open arms.

The actor says, "I think his last message was, 'So you just shut me off completely?' I just can't deal with him now. I have so much other stuff to do.

"The people who put in the effort, those are the people you should be with."

But Foxx insists he will get round to making time for his father, even though he never took part in his childhood.

He adds, "I think eventually I'll get to him, but right now - in times like these - I don't want to bring on too much. I have to be light and free, even with my dad.

"It's like, 'I wanted to hear from you for the past 27 years, and what's your excuse for that?' That's a lot to get past."
