G-Eazy is suffering heartbreak on the toughest level, announcing his mom has died, and sharing a beautiful tribute to her with his fans.
The rapper, real name Gerald Earl Gillum, says his mother Suzanne Olmsted passed away, saying, “The shock still won’t let me accept the feeling that I’ll never get to hug you in person again. My queen, my hero, my everything… my mom.”
He continues, “The tears won’t stop. My eyes hurt, my face hurts, my body hurts, everywhere hurts. There’s no safe place to hide and there’s no way to lay, sit, or stand that doesn’t hurt. The pain is enormous. But I know you’re out of yours and that brings me peace.
I love you so much.”
It’s currently unclear how she died, but G-Eazy fans know what an important role she played in his personal life as well as his career … often attending shows and even events with the rapper.
Then there’s this, G-Eazy reveals his mom recently persuaded him to go to rehab for drugs and alcohol, writing, “I didn’t realize the extent of just how worried you were about me until you sent me the hardest letter I’ve ever had to read… Going to treatment for alcohol and drugs was my decision but your letter was what ultimately persuaded me.”
G-Eazy played at BottleRock Festival back in September and shared his mom was unable to attend, he did, however, call her on FaceTime during his set in a really awesome moment.
