Yesterday, we shared the news that Cuba Gooding Sr. passed away in California of a suspected drug overdose. Besides being the father of actor Cuba Gooding Jr., he was also the lead singer for the group The Main Ingredient.

Unfortunately for Gooding Jr., he wasn't around family when he heard the tragic news, since he's currently working on a new film. According to TMZ, the Boyz in the Hood alum is now in Toronto, Canada shooting the movie A Life in a Year, and that's when he was told about his dad. Reportedly, Jaden Smith, who's also in the film, was seen comforting the actor, and there's no word that shooting was ever interrupted.

At this time, Gooding Jr. hasn't released a statement about his father, nor has his family. There's also been no word on when the late singer will finally be laid to rest.
