SAD NEWS: Kelly Rowland’s Mom Dies


Our prayers go out to Kelly Rowland and her family. Sadly, it’s being reported that Kelly Rowland’s mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, has passed away. According to MediaTakeout, Garrison had been battling an illness for a very long time and has succumbed to it merely a month after Kelly gave birth to her first son and Garrison’s grandson, Titan Jewell Weatherspoon. Also, only a few months after the R&B sweetheart married her manager Tim Weatherspoon back in May.
