Wiz Khalifa is speaking out following the passing of his sister.

The rapper’s older sibling, Dorien “Lala” Thomaz, died on February 22 at the age of 32.

Wiz broke his silence on Friday morning via Twitter and thanked fans in advance for their love and support. “The loss of my sibling has been the hardest thing Ive had to deal with but wiith your prayers and well wishes my family will get though this,” he wrote.

Details surrounding her untimely death are unclear, but Wiz and Dorien’s mother Peachie Wimbush was by her side when she passed on.

Peachie wrote on Instagram: “There was no noise, no tremble, just peace. Oh God(dess), I realized as a woman how lucky I am. I was there when that wonderful creature drifted into my life and I was there when she drifted out. It was the most precious moment of my life. —M’Lynn Steel Magnolias.”

She added, “I have seen, heard and felt every bit of your love.”

According to reports, Dorien, who was also transgender, had been sick for some time.

Our thoughts are with Wiz and his family.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
