Getting Hitched Young
Faison and Askey got married in 2001, but their marriage was short-lived. Askey was a nursing student when she tied the knot with the actor, who is most famous for his roles in “Clueless,” “Remember the Titans,” and “Scrubs.” Faison admitted that he was not ready for married life, telling People in 2002, “I spent money on stupid things. A motorcycle, a big screen TV. I was lazy, and she straightened me out.” At that time, Askey said, “He’s just a big kid himself.” The couple started dating in 1997 and two years later welcomed fraternal twins, son Dade and daughter Kaya. Two years later they married and their third child, Kobe was born.
Donald Faison and Lisa Askey ultimately divorced in 2005. Though they separated, the Scrubs star says that Askey helped him put his life together when he didn’t know what to do. After the death of his ex-wife, Faison wrote a touching post on Instagram that read, “My son Dade is very brave. Today he and his brother Kobe and sister Kaya lost their mother, Lisa Askey Faison. She and I never really saw eye to eye, but one thing we did share was our love for our children. RIP Lisa. You raised three beautiful children into fine adults, and I am forever grateful for that. May God bless your soul with light and love.”
Dade Faison took to social media to express his grief at his mother’s passing, captioning a post on Instagram, “I just wanted to say thank you so much, mom! You have been there for me when I needed you most. I cant [sic] believe it has come to this, but I know you are in a better place right now. I love you with all my heart and one day we shall meet again. You worked so hard and never gave up no matter how hard times got. R.I.P mom and until next time! #RestInPeace #BestMom #Love.”
