Famous singer Kelly Rowland has been through a tragic moment. The beautiful star lost her mom, who has died at the age of 66. Kelly announced the sad news in a statement.
“It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison. She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman—and now mother—I am today,” Rowland said in her statement. “We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
The news was revealed on Wednesday. This surely is a tragic moment for the star, as the death of her mom actually comes only a few weeks after Kelly welcomed her first child with husband Tim Weatherspoon. Kelly was extremely happy with this new addition to the family, but it seems that she wasn’t able to share this wonderful time with her mom.
The cause of death has not been revealed at this point. However, it has been claimed that Kelly’s mom died in her hometown of Atlanta. Kelly and her brother Orlando were raised by their mother, after their parents divorced back in 1988. Kelly has always been very close to her mother, so the news has been a huge shock for her.
Moreover, Kelly has always had her mom’s support, both when it comes to her musical career and when it comes to her television appearances. Kelly released no less than 4 solo albums, besides the Destiney’s Child records she launched throughout the years. Moreover, the star also went to be a judge on X-Factor managing to become even more successful. Kelly recently became a mom, so she gave Doris the gift of becoming a grandmother.
When the baby news were revealed, Kelly Rowland received support from her friend and former band colleague, Beyonce. “There’s no better feeling than holding my beautiful nephew,” Beyonce said after the birth of Kelly’s baby. “I thank god for the honor of witnessing my sisters journey into motherhood. I’ve always dreamt of our little ones growing up together. I’m so thankful for our bond. Baby Ty, I love you so much. Congrats to my Spoons.”
