Update: Actor Forest Whitaker

Actor Forest Whitaker's ex-wife, actress Keisha Nash's cause of death revealed

Keisha Nash Whitaker, ex-wife of actor Forest Whitaker, died of alcoholic liver disease at age 51 on December 7.

Nash-Whitaker, who battled anorexia for years, suffered from the disease that occurs when the liver is severely damaged by excessive alcohol consumption – years before her death, reveals a death certificate obtained by TMZ.

Acute kidney failure, which can be caused by anorexia, is also listed as a significant contributing factor to his death.

She died at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles County.

The former couple's daughter True Whitaker, 25, confirmed the tragic news on her Instagram account last month, calling her “the most beautiful woman in the world” in a heartbreaking post.

A source told DailyMail that Nash-Whitaker died after being in and out of hospital over the past few months with bowel problems following a years-long battle with anorexia.

“Keisha has struggled with anorexia for years,” said a source. Forrest stood by her side during these difficult times, but the following year he filed for divorce in 2015.

Whitaker, 62, and Nash-Whitaker married in 1996 and have two daughters, Sonnet, 27, and True, 25.

'They remained friends and their divorce was amicable, but as Whitaker said his wife was 'kind, funny, intelligent and outgoing, as well as a good mother to their children, there was no need for them not to remain friendly.'

Whitaker's wife sparked concern in 2014 after she was seen showing off her slim figure during the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards with her husband.

According to RadarOnline.com, Keisha is estimated to have lost around 35 pounds (two and a half stone) over the past few years.

This extreme weight loss at her age can lead to significant health problems, according to Hampton Diet author Dr. Fred Pescatore.

Pescatore, who has not treated Keisha, told Radar: “She is at risk for premature aging of her heart and bones.
