In a photo that the man uploaded to his Facebook page, he was portrayed wearing a white shirt and dark blue suit. His daughter Holly was next to him wearing a sleeveless black dress while holding a cup of wine.

The third person shown in the image – though half of his face was cut out of the frame – is Teddy, Holly’s husband. The relationship that Clifton and his son-in-law have is very special as he has shared photos on social media about him.

In late-2017, the singer shared a three-image slideshow portraying Teddy, who is a chef, hugging his two daughters.

The project that took him to stardom was That’s My Mama, wherein he took the role of Clifton Curtis for 39 episodes. After that, he worked in different shows and movies before landing his second big hit titled Amen, wherein he portrayed Rev. Reuben Gregory.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t handle the struggles and pressure that the fame brings, and he became a cocaine addict. Everything began in 1972, just when his career started, Celebritist previously reported.

By 1980, his problem was so severe that he couldn’t audition, so he couldn’t land roles. Even if he managed to land them, he wouldn’t show up. His addiction was so severe that he had to sell his Hollywood Hills home to pay for his drug tab.

Thankfully, he changed his behavior after his secretary saved him from passing due to an overdose and with the help of the closest members of his family, including his wife Ann Taylor, who he married to in 1981.
