Damon Wayans is getting his priorities straight! He has quit the Fox hit show Lethal Weapon to spend time with his family!!! He says he’s done in December at the conclusion of 13 episodes for the new season.
Wayans shared that as a 58-year-old diabetic, working 16-hour days has become too much. He also says it is affecting his personal life. His mom and daughter underwent surgeries that he missed because he was working.
“It’s hard for me to play this loving, supportive father/husband/ friend on TV, but be the guy in life that is telling everyone, I can’t I have to work.”
“You have to look yourself in the eye and ask, who are you? It can’t be all about work. I’m from a big family, a loving family. All the family gatherings, I haven’t seen them. I’m too tired or I can’t because it conflicts with work… I have seven grandkids. I’ve been missing recitals and graduations. To me it’s just not worth it. There is a better way to live life.”
I commend Damon Wayans for choosing his family over his job!!! Excellent choice
