Former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland is mourning the death of her mother less than just a month after becoming a mother herself.
Doris Rowland Garrison died yesterday (Dec. 2) in Atlanta. She was 66-years-old. No cause of death has been cited as of yet.
Kelly, who gave birth to her first child on November 4, was raised by her single mother from the age of 7 after they left her father, who was an abusive alcoholic.
Doris dedicated her life to Kelly, born Kelendria. Only a year after leaving her husband, Doris moved herself and her daughter to Texas, where Kelly would eventually meet Beyoncé. In a talent contest, the two were placed into a girl group Girl’s Tyme, which went on to become Destiny’s Child. The rest, as they say, is history.
We are deeply sorry for your loss, Kelly. Stay strong.
