Dwayne Johnson has revealed his dad Rocky Johnson’s cause of death.
Johnson took to social media on Sunday and thanked his online following for their love and support in the aftermath of Rocky’s passing. “The Rock” said that his father died suddenly of a heart attack.
“I lost him just like that, didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to him,” he said. “I’d give anything right now to give him a big ole hug and a big ole kiss before he crossed over and just say thank you and I love you and I respect you. But I didn’t get a chance to say that…”
“He had not been feeling well, had been battling a cold and infection, and on Tuesday he had what’s called a deep vein thrombosis, which is essentially a clot in the leg,” the actor continued. “It was a big ole blood clot that broke free, travelled up his body, and went right to his lung, clotted his lung and he died very quickly from a massive heart attack, just like that.”
Johnson was relieved to know that his father did not suffer long. “The Rock” is now in the process of writing his dad’s eulogy. He admits, “I have no idea where to start with this one.”
Rocky passed away on Jan. 15 at the age of 75.
