While the effort was put on hold following Boykin’s death last Tuesday, Shin added that the brand is now considering a small launch with the purpose of having proceeds benefit the late talent’s daughter, 9-year-old Isis.

Boykin’s ex-wife Shannon Turley told ET that Boykin died at a Plano, Texas, hospital May 9. Turley said Boykin suffered from congenital heart failure and doctors said he likely needed a transplant. She said Boykin had been in the hospital several times over the past year.
