Marlon Wayans remembers her late mother on what would have been her 82nd birthday, and reveals the matriarch of the Wayans family, Elvira, is dead.
We’re told Elvira passed away a few weeks ago, but Marlon waited until his birthday to share the grim news. He posted a touching tribute to his mother on Thursday, which is usually a very special day for them … they share a birthday, and Marlon says it’s hard to celebrate another year knowing that his mother is gone for always.
The comedian wrote … “Losing you shattered me into 1000 pieces. I’m putting my life back together piece by piece. You will always be my glue. I miss you. Today I’m partying for both. In the middle of it all. Hurt … I just love you my. “
Marlon adds … “I have accomplished so much, I made you so proud … but now I have an angel to lift me up. #Loveofmylife #bdaygotl s *** ma, I gave you all my birthdays … now 😂 millions of weetahs sugtas and pals #myfirstmylastmyeverything are resting well. “
Damien wayans also commented on his uncle’s post … “1,000,000 weetahs indeed!”
Let’s face it, Hollywood owes Elvira a debt of gratitude … the woman brought 10 Wayan children into the world, giving birth to one of the biggest and most successful families in show biz.
Elvira’s children – Keenan, Damon, Shawn, Marlon, Dwayne, Kim, Nadia, Elvira, Diedre and Vonnie – have written, directed, produced and starred in countless movies and TV series, including “The Wayans Bros.”, often working together on their content.
