Dwayne Johnson reveals father Rocky died of ‘massive heart attack’

Dwayne Johnson’s father, wrestling pioneer Rocky Johnson, died “quick” of a “massive heart attack”, the action star shared on Sunday (19Jan20), thanking fans for “lifting” his spirits.

The Jumanji: The Next Level star previously revealed the news of his dad’s death on Wednesday, aged 75, writing a moving tribute on Instagram and Twitter, but in his new video, he also reveals he didn’t get a chance to say goodbye.

His video began: “Hey everybody I just wanted to stop in on this very blessed Sunday to say thank you so much. Thank you. My heart is so full of gratitude, deep in my bones, in my constitution, in my wiring, in my heart and in my manna, for the outpouring of love and the support and well wishes and condolences you have sent me and my family during this time.

“You’ve lifted my spirits in ways that I hope you can imagine.”

He added he has read “as many” condolence messages as he “possibly could”.

“As you know,” he continued, “I lost my old man a few days ago. I lost him just like that, didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to him. I’d give anything right now to give him a big ole hug and a big ole kiss before he crossed over and just say thank you and I love you and I respect you. But I didn’t get a chance to say that, but such is life, as many of you know.

“A lot of you guys wanted to know what happened to my dad. He had not been feeling well, had been battling a cold and infection and on Tuesday he had what’s called a deep vein thrombosis, which is essentially a clot in the leg. It was a big ole blood clot that broke free, traveled up his body, and went right to his lung, clotted his lung and he died very quickly from a massive heart attack, just like that…”

He also noted he really didn’t know “where to start” with his speech, but revealed he was sipping on tequila and could hear his father’s voice, saying, “Make sure you put me over in the speech – say good stuff about me.”

“That’s right, dad,” he concluded. “That’s why you will always be better than me. And i love it and i love you and i love you guys.”
