“L.A. Hair” reality TV star Dontay Savoy suffered a heartbreaking loss this week when his fiancé, famous hairstylist Antwon L. Jackson, died. Understandably, the loss has left Savoy devastated and he recently mourned the loss of his loved on his social media pages.
As previously reported, Jackson was Wendy Williams’ hair stylist on her daytime talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show,” and he is regularly seen on camera on her behind-the-scenes YouTube clips for the show. On Wednesday, Williams revealed to the world that Jackson had died.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share with all of you the death of Antwon Jackson, my wigologist. He was an Emmy-winning stylist and so much more. He was my friend. He had the biggest heart and was a pleasure to work with. I will forever be thankful for your friendship and love, Antwon. Thank you for the laughter you brought into my life and your sweet smile that always brightened my day. May you rest in peace,” Williams wrote on her show’s Instagram page.
Yesterday, Savoy finally opened up publicly about the loss of his fiancé when he posted a video of himself and Jackson during a recent vacation trip. In the clip, Savoy and Jackson are smiling as they stand over a river as Jackson holds a lock with a key in it that has both of their names written on it.
In the video caption, Savoy wrote, “@antwonljackson I could fight him so bad right now. The best man EVER!!! Missin you so much! Numb. Thank you for all of your love. I love you.”
Later on, Savoy posted a sorrowful meme of Leonardo DiCaprio crying and captioned it with “No crying for help … .just crying.”
Our condolences go out to Savoy and Williams, as well as Jackson’s family, for their loss.
