On a GoFundMe organized by the late actor’s mother, she posted:
Hello community, family and friends, I know this is a difficult time for everyone, but I tend to ask for your help because my son needs his community’s support. Coronji Calhoun Sr. recently joined the ancestors to watch over me and our family on October 13, 2021. At the age of ten he portrayed Tyrell, the son of Lawrence (Sean “P. Diddy” Combs) and Leticia Musgrove (Halle Berry). in the 2001 Oscar winning movie Monster’s Ball. Unfortunately, we didn’t have life insurance for him (as we never expected this tragedy to happen to us) before he moved. Now we ask for your generosity with your donations as we prepare to give Coronji a sacred celebration of life.
Thank you for your prayers, calls, texts and selfless support!
Both Halle Berry and Monster’s Ball producer Lee Daniels both contributed to the fundraiser.
