Other stars spotted at the funeral, included Larsa Pippen, who wore a black and white patterned mini dress and heels and Jamie Foxx, who wore a black and white patterned button-down top and black pants. The popular faces came out to show love for JR after he affected their lives in one way or another. He and his wife, Loren, co-founded Market America, a multimillion dollar marketing company that sponsored many music and sporting events over the years. Loren took to Facebook less than a week ago to update her followers on how she was doing with the sudden loss.

“I don’t feel better. I am not myself. It has been only 4 weeks and the suffering just really started,” she wrote. “But I am doing the best I can each day. I am I grief therapy a few days a week. I am doing all I can to get better as some people call it- it’s not because they mean harm – it’s because they have no knowledge. That’s all So good advice for those. It’s best to just say – I am thinking about you and praying for you. That’s the easiest way.”
