*Six days after his death from colon cancer at his home in Los Angeles, actor Chadwick Boseman was buried near his South Carolina hometown, according to the Associated Press.

The news service went onto report that Boseman, who starred in the title role in the acclaimed blockbuster film, “Black Panther,” was buried Sept. 3rd at the Welfare Baptist Church Cemetery in Belton, South Carolina, according to the death certificate the AP was able to obtain.

Belton, if you are wondering, is about 11 miles from Boseman’s hometown of Anderson which held a public memorial for Boseman a day later.

Specifically, Boseman died at his home near Griffith Park in Los Angeles on Aug. 28, the certificate said.

The immediate cause was listed as multiple organ failure, with the underlying cause of colon cancer, which his family said previously that he had been diagnosed with four years earlier.

Boseman had surgery to remove the colon cancer in 2016 after his diagnosis, and in March of this year had laparoscopic surgery to remove cancer that had metastasized, the record showed.

The document lists Boseman’s profession as “artist,” and his industry as entertainment.

Very few outside of his family knew that Boseman, who played “Black Panther” in four Marvel movies and also starred in the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” had been battling colon cancer when he died at age 43.

In related news, Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Evans are both grieving the loss of their friend Chadwick Boseman.

“It was sudden to all of us,” Jackson, 71, said on the “Tamron Hall Show” on Tuesday.

“It’s gut-wrenching to lose someone with such an important part of the culture in terms of what he became to the world in terms of ‘Black Panther,’” Jackson added. “We all hope when we work that people remember things that we do, but he imprinted on society in such a way especially in black culture by giving a hero they could aspire to.”

Evans, who also appeared on Hall’s eponymous talk show, added that Boseman’s untimely death was “tough” for everybody.

“I think that it kind of highlights the power he has. As Sam said, his cultural impact is immeasurable, not just as an artist but as a man,” Evans, 39, added.

“It’s heartbreaking. It’s tough to process but his impact, his legacy is solidified forever.”

“We never really together publicly talk about Janet, and what happened, and for me it felt like I couldn’t celebrate 30 years of ‘Fresh Prince’ without finding a way to celebrate Janet,” Smith tells co-stars Reid, Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) in the reunion taping. 

Ribeiro, who played Carlton on the show, didn’t stick around for the emotional moment between Smith and Hubert. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, het claims he couldn’t be on set that day due to filming commitments with “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. 

“Unfortunately I had to go shoot that day. All of the social media content and the photographs were taken without me,” he said. “I literally did my own photo shoot on the couch so they could put me in the group photo. The actual special was filmed in one day, but all the other stuff was done on the other days.”

Meanwhile, Hubert also addressed speculation about why Ribeiro didn’t show up, telling fans to “let it go.”

Patrik-Ian Polk (“P-Valley,” “Being Mary Jane”) will write the script, alongside Union, Hill, Carter and Holly Shakoor Fleischer will co-executive produce.

In related news, on the Nov. 23 episode of Daily Pop, Union dished about the holiday traditions she and husband Dwyane Wade look forward to every year.

“The only thing that has been consistent about how me and my husband have celebrated is our lack of consistency,” Union joked. “Because both of our lives are so transient.”

She added,  “My husband was never in one place. He always played on Christmas. A lot of times he played on Thanksgiving,” explained the L.A.’s Finest actress. “So celebrating in different cities—it might be in a hotel room in Philly having a turkey sandwich— as long as we’ve been together, that’s only our real tradition.”

Union and Wade are parents to a baby girl named Kaavia James, and Gabby is also a stepmother to Wade’s other children Zaire, 18, Zaya, 13, Xavier, 6 and his nephew Dahveon, 19. 

“We’re gonna keep some of the things we’ve always done, like a candied ham,” she shared. “Since I was a kid, there has been a candied ham. Even when there wasn’t a turkey, there was a ham.”
