According to a recent post on Megan Thee Stallion‘s Instagram account, her mother, Holly Thomas, has passed away.
The rapper revealed the news of her mother’s death in an Instagram post on Friday (March 22), publishing a photo of herself with “the strongest woman on the planet.”
“The best mom in the whole world,” she wrote. “…I can’t even put complete sentences together rn RIP mama.”
Just like the Tina Snow artist, Thomas was a rapper who went by the name of Holly-Wood. With no doubt that her lyrical abilities rubbed off on her daughter, Thomas refused to let the “Tina Montana” emcee rap professionally until she turned 21. Beyond their bond, Megan Thee Stallion’s mother doubled as her first assistant and manager.
In VIBE’s NEXT feature, the 24-year-old artist revisited the moments her mother listened to her music. “Sometimes when we’re in the studio, I get her so hyped that she’s like, ‘Megan, I’m about to get in the booth and come out with another mixtape,’” she said.
There are currently no reports stating the cause of death.
