Keisha Nash Whitaker’s journey to fame began when she met Forest Whitaker on the set of the 1994 film ‘Blown Away,’ where she played his character’s girlfriend. Their on-screen chemistry blossomed into real-life romance, leading to their marriage in 1996 in the picturesque Montego Bay, Jamaica. Together, they shared two daughters, True and Sonnet Noel, aged 25 and 27, respectively.

Forest Whitaker also has a son, Ocean, aged 33, from a previous relationship, as does Keisha, who has a daughter named Autumn, aged 32.

After 22 years of marriage, the couple parted ways in December 2018, citing irreconcilable differences. Despite the end of their marriage, the respect and admiration they held for each other remained evident.

Keisha’s academic background includes her graduation from Lynn Classical High School in Lynn, Massachusetts, as reported by Northshore magazine in 2008. Her entrepreneurial spirit shone through her creation of Kissable Couture, a luxury cosmetics line she co-founded with makeup artist A.J. Crimson.

Her ambition was clear when she told O, The Oprah Magazine, “I’ve always been very ambitious. When my kids were younger, I tried to start a clothing line for children. But you have to be really committed to a new business, and at that time I was more focused on being a mother.”

Forest Whitaker, in a 2009 interview with Parade, spoke fondly of his wife’s strength, particularly in parenting. “To be honest, my wife is much stronger with the kids than I am. They come to me when they’re trying to slip something by. I have to always take a pause, when they come and say, ‘Hey Dad, is it OK if we do this?’ So I just look at them like, ‘Have you talked to your mom about that?’ They know I’m the easy one.”
