AceShowbiz - Actress Taraji P. Henson has asked fans to pray for her beloved French bulldog as he fights for his life following surgery complications.
The "Empire" star took to Instagram on Saturday, March 27 to share the sad news with fans, revealing her pet pooch, named K-Ball, isn't doing well, although she has yet to share details about the operation he recently underwent, or the health issues he has since encountered.
Alongside a snap of K-Ball looking glum with a tube up his nose, she wrote on her Instagram Story timeline, "Mommy and team are praying Lil champ!!!! Keep fighting baby @kballhenson."
Taraji also urged her 17.1 million followers to keep K-Ball in their thoughts. "I NEED ALL PRAYER SOLDIERS TO PRAY FOR MY BABY @kballhenson," she begged on her profile page.
"He is having some complications after his surgery. He is fighting and I am loosing my mind. PLEASE KEEP FIGHTING @kballhenson MOMMY NEEDS YOU [sic]!!!!!!!"
Since then, Taraji was flooded with words of encouragement from fellow celebrities. "How to Get Away with Murder" star Viola Davis wrote in the comment section, "I am praying NOW!! Every part of my heart is with you." Former "The Talk" co-host Holly Robinson Peete replied, "Omggggg Prayers UP." Additionally, "Mad Men" actress January Jones chimed in, "Oh noooo!! So sorry! Prayers."
