Keisha Whitaker passed away at 51 in December 2023, leaving behind three beautiful children.

New details surrounding the death of Forest Whitaker’s ex-wife Keisha “Nash” Whitaker have come to light. 

 Forest and Keisha went from on-screen love interests to real-life husband and wife after meeting on the set of Blown Away and tying the knot two years later. 

In 1996, they sealed their union with a beautiful ceremony in Jamaica, but 22 years later, their relationship came to an end.

The 46-year-old actress’s husband filed for divorce in December 2018. 

Although the two never publicly commented on their split, Keisha shared fond memories of their marriage.

“Anything that I’m doing that Forest’s able to be there and come and support me, he absolutely does. What makes a good partnership or marriage is when you support one another. I certainly love and respect what Forest does. It’s hard. He works really hard to take care of our family. I think it’s important to show my appreciation by being there for him and supporting him. ”
