DL Hughley Tells Angela Yee About Heartbreaking Death Of Son Outside Of Marriage
This one is definitely a doozy.. We’ve long admired DL Hughley for having good sense on top of his great sense of humor, but our respect for the comedian has grown immensely after getting a first-look at his recent taping of “Lip Service with Angela Yee”. BOSSIP obtained a clip where DL tells Angela and her co-hosts about how he fathered a child outside of his marriage who died tragically.
“I remember I got jammed up right,” Hughley told Lip Service.“So I had knocked this chick up, and she had the baby and the baby got killed by her boyfriend. It was a horrible, horrible experience.”
“I had this baby I’m paying for, I’m a boy, I’m scared, I’m married, I’m just starting out my career,” DL recalled during his interview.
“I get a call from my boy and he says “Your son is in the hospital.” And I go and they were Cape Verdean, she was from Cape Verde, so I go to the hospital and this boy was laying the bed and apparently, her boyfriend had shaken him, and damaged him, and I knew one day I would be man enough to tell my woman what had happened. I was so f***ed up.”
DL described how he was eventually unable to keep his secret any long and decided to confess to his wife.
“So finally one day I tell my wife and do you know she told me, she said, ‘I wish you would have told me so we could have gone through that together.”
If you were DL’s wife, would you have responded in the same way? It turns out that the story didn’t end there. Hughley says his son’s mother eventually popped up on him unexpectedly.
“Years later we’re at the airport — remember when you used to be able to go through the airport, you didn’t have to have a ticket and you could meet your family, so one day I go and the girl is there and my wife meets me at the plane. I see her see us and I know she thinks she got me in a trick bag and I say, ‘Baby, this is the girl I had the baby by,’ and my wife said, ‘I’m so sorry for your loss.’
“And I felt so small. Because I was a coward two ways. And it starts to change the way you see stuff. I think when you’re very young, I never felt bad about my inclinations, I have felt bad about the damage that it’s done to the people in my life and I don’t want to be the kind of guy that at the end of your life has broken a lot of people, children and women, and families, and I think a lot of guys feel like that.
