Taraji P. Henson mourns the loss of her beloved French bulldog K-Ball, who died over the weekend following complications from surgery.
The Empire actress, 50, announced her pup had died in a heartfelt Instagram post on Monday morning, two days after asking her fans to pray for K-Ball’s recovery.
She said that her French bulldog “had two surgeries and his Lil body couldn’t take it”
On Saturday, Henson asked her Instagram followers for their prayers and support for K-Ball, who was “having some complications after his surgery. “
K- ball came into her possession around Christmas time back in December 2017, just weeks after the death of Uncle Wikk, her dog of 16 years.
“I got a baby, and his name is K-Ball,” she said in January 2018 on Live with Kelly and Ryan, saying that she chose the name for her new canine because he looks like both a “little baby football player and … Yoda.”
“He’s just so handsome, I just love him’ she gushed at the time.
