DC Young Fly previously revealed on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast that he’s the youngest of six children and the son of a 61-year-old Pastor.
“I come from an older family, olderrrr family. Everybody knows my daddy had me when he was 61,” said Young Fly, née John Whitfield. “My oldest brother right now, 66… My partner said I got a grandbrother. Listen, man, I got granddaddies, great-niece, I’m a great uncle… I’ve been a great since I was 12.”
Prior to this news about his sister, DC Young Fly paid tribute to Jacky Oh and delivered the eulogy at her funeral.
He also said that he cries in private “all the time” over her unexpected death.
“We’re human, we’re emotional,” he admitted. “People want to see me cry. I’m just not going to record myself crying and show you I’m crying.”
“I cry all the time. I’d rather show positivity and let people know that God is the greatest. I want to continue to show that God is keeping me uplifted and keeps granting me the strength.”
Oh, real name Jacklyn Smith, welcomed three children with the comedian and a recent report from the Miami-Dade County medical examiner confirmed that her cause of death was complications of cosmetic surgery.
