Cameron Diaz Lost Her Dad

Alright, I’m declaring a moratorium on busting on Cameron Diaz for awhile. Her Dad passed away.

Emilio Diaz, 58, passed away due to flu-related pneumonia on Monday. He was a second generation Cuban-American who for an oil company. Shooting on Cameron’s latest movie, My Sister’s Keeper, was shut down when Cameron received news of his death.

“My mom, sister and I are deeply appreciative of the overwhelming outpouring of love and support during this difficult time for us and all of our family,” she said in a statement.

“My dad was loved by so many people and his humor and spirit will always live on in our hearts,” she added.
