Rapper and Love & Hip Hip Miami star, Trina is in mourning as her mother Vernessa Taylor has passed away.
According to TMZ, Vernessa ‘Nessa’ Taylor, died Tuesday morning, according to Trina’s representative.
Ms Taylor was the rock that molded her daughter into the strong, successful woman she’s become, and that she was also a pillar in her community in advocating for self-love, confidence and perseverance among women in general.
Trina’s rep says, “Thank you all for your kind words and condolences regarding Trina’s mother. It truly gives the family some peace and comfort knowing that ‘Nessa’ lived such a fulfilling life filled with love and abundance.”
Trina’s team asks for privacy as the family mourns.
Trina mentioned her mother in her music, notably referencing her in a song similar to Pac’s “Dear Mama.” In her 2017 track — simply titled “Mama (The One)” — Trina raps about wanting to pass before her mother did ’cause of how attached she was to her.
Trina’s lyrics go like this … “Thinking ’bout you mama / Got me running to the liquor / Mama where you goin’? / I’m gon’ have to beg to differ / I’d rather go first, so I wanna go with you ’cause I can’t do this without you.” Obviously, they were incredibly close.
Just last year, Trina threw her mother an extravagant rooftop birthday party, where photos and music were in abundance and a good time was had by all.
We’re told Trina’s closest friends are trying to keep her grounded during this difficult time, and that she’s surrounded by loved ones as she works through the grieving process.
Our condolences to Trina and the Taylor family.
