: MediaTakeOut.com is sad to report to you that rapper Lil Mama, whose real name is Niatia Jessica Kirkland, suffered a terrible loss over the weekend. On Saturday afternoon, Lil Mama's mother passed away.
Tyra Kirkland (Lil Mama's mother) was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and had been valiantly fighting the disease ever since.
Lil Mama received the news of her mother's passing while at an Atlanta concert. She immediately returned to New York to be with family.
What nut said that this is the Chicken Noodle Soup girl? Dummy.
Rest in peace Big Mama. Thank you for giving the world a talent like lil mama instead of another tramp that our community just does not need.
It's always sad to hear of a young child that has lost a close parent. Her mother was a beautifulwoman to, she appeared in the lip gloss video. Lil Mamma's family is in my prayers. R.I.P Tyra Kirklan, you are God's Angel now.
MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER FAMILY, TO BE IN THIS WORLD WITHOUT A MOTHER AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE. LIL MAMA KEEP DOING YOUR THING, AT LEAST YOUR MOTHER GOT TO WATCH YOU BECOME A STAR, AND DO WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO BEST WHICH IS ENTERTAIN THE WORLD WITH YOUR GIFT.
my prayers go out to lil mam and her family. i lost my dad in 1992 and i lost my mom in 19995, so i know what it's like to loose your parents. i made it through by the grace of god, and to u lil mama, u can make it toooo. it will take some time but time heals all wounds!!!!! keep ya head up, lil mama!!!!!!!!!!!!! cristyles
Even in the midst of this sad moment, it does my heart pure joy to see the MTO blog fam come together as WE have and pay respects to all of the celebs that have suffered the misfortunes of untimely deaths.
Just goes to show, we may talk SMACK up in here, but when it comes down to it, we are a TRUE FAM!!
(two pounds to da chest) MUCH LOVE MTO!!!!
I was listening to the 97.9 the box this morning and Nnette said that this amongst other rumors about deaths this weekend was false. I don't want to think my girl is slipping, but if just in case she wrong, my condolences go out to the family.
Is this really true??? It was just all over the radio last week that Soulja Boy's mother was killed in a car wreck and he released a statement thanking everyone for the support, clearing the air saying it never happened, and expressing the frustration with a hurtful rumor like that saying it almost gave him a heart attack hearing that away from home on tour. If this is true, condolensces to Lil Mama and family.
Death is never a welcomed guest, expected or unexpected and even worse when its approaching such a family oriented time as Christmas. Now every Christmas thereafter they will hv that memory of her passing as well. :-( Be strong in your loss lil ma.
I'm so sorry,My own mother passed away due to cancer on March 26th of this year and I still haven't packed her things.I'm still not ready. I understand,remember to pray and know that her suffering has ended. Don't expect to feel like yourself anytime soon,give yourself time to make peace with it-however long it takes.Much love.
My prayers go out to her if this true, because you guys have been lying all weekend, talking about people dying.....to lose a parent is not a joke the $h!t and funny, it's heart breaking.....
May GOD bless her!!!!!
Even though I don't understand you.
Awww! She and her mother look just alike too....my condolences go out to you Lil Mama, may GOD give you the strength to get thru this difficult time
....from watching her and her mom on the BET Mother's Day special last year, I could tell that they were so so close....when her mother started talking about her cancer Lil Mama broke out in tears.... Nobody's ever prepared to lose their mom's, no matter how sick she was
i know her mom is in the better place right now.i just lost my father in the early 90s after he lost the battle of lung cancer but i feel lil' mama's pain right now and i know my prayers and thoughts is belong 2 her family and kayne west's family as well.i know losing parents is so hard but i hope lil' mama can keep her head up and be a stong young black woman as she is(yes,shes 18).
