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.
