Felicia Forbes was born on January 2, 1972, in Cape Town, South Africa, to Katy Holmes.

Felicia is a Capricorn woman. A Capricorn is ambitious, responsible, and loyal; however, her stubbornness, pessimism, and impulsiveness can sometimes be a turn-off for you.

Her name means happiness in Latin.

Before meeting Tommy, there was very little information on her. But from what we have learned, her mother, Katy, was religious, and she greatly influenced Felicia.

Furthermore, Felicia is a devout Catholic.

Unfortunately, Katy passed in June 2020.

Even though Felicia was born in South Africa, she moved to California, USA, after marrying her husband, Tommy Lister.


Tommy Lister was in South Africa shooting for the film “Blast.” It was then he met Felicia.

In 2003, they decided to take their relationship to a new level. Pastor Wayne Meyer of His People Christian Church performed the wedding ceremony.

Felicia Forbes married him in Cape Town at the home of construction developer Faik Haroun.

When asked about his marriage to Jet, Tom stated that he had always wished for a wife like Felicia, a devout Christian. He also credited his parents for instilling faith in God and loving his wife and family.

Among others, Samuel L Jackson also attended the wedding.

In 2019, the media discovered that Felicia and Tommy had separated; however, they weren’t divorced.

Interestingly Tommy was already dating a girl. An infamous altercation on IG Live with her led to police intervention.

Tommy Lister (husband)

His full name is Thomas Duane Lister Jr.; he is also called Deebo and Tiny by his fans and friends.

Tommy was born on June 24, 1958. He is a WWF wrestler who has played in movies too.

Felicia Forbes’ late husband was born with a detached and deformed retina. It was his right eye that was blind and drooped. It was a unique look that he took advantage of in his movies.

While in college, Tommy had an outstanding track and field record. Despite being blind in his right eye, he won the NCAA Division II National Shot Put Championship in 1982.

On December 10, 2020, Lister died in Marina Del Rey, California. He was ill and had COVID-19 symptoms in the days following his death.

The actor’s autopsy revealed that he died with fluid in his chest. Furthermore, he also suffered from an irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, poor leg circulation, and coronary heart disease.

Lister died due to “hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.”

He was 62 years old at the time.

Additionally, Faith was born in 2008, and as of 2021, she will be 13 years old. They share a close relationship with their daughter. Therefore, Tom often posts images of his daughter on his social media accounts.

Interestingly, Felicia Forbes is clear from rumors and clashes. However, her husband, on the other hand, was charged with a USD 3.8 million in real estate fraud in 2012.

On March 18, 2013, he was sentenced to prison, but the information and news about it gradually disappeared. However, according to rumors, Tommy Lister was involved in a scandal in 2019 regarding his mystery lover.


Felicia is a missionary who worked as a minister in Cape Town. Similarly, she has been a Human Resources Business Partner with ABM AVIATION, INC. since 2018.

Felicia is also a missionary on a mission to spread Christianity in a faraway land. So naturally, she does not reveal much about her personal life on public and social media platforms.
