Marlon Wayans is remembering his late mother on what would have been her 82nd birthday, and revealing the Wayans family matriarch, Elvira, has died.
We’re told Elvira passed away a couple weeks ago, but Marlon waited until her birthday to share the somber news. He posted a touching tribute to his mother Thursday, on what is usually a very special day for them … they share a birthday, and Marlon says it’s hard to celebrate another year knowing his mom is gone forever.
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. Miss you. Today I celebrate for the both of. In the midst of this hurt… i just love you ma.”
Marlon adds … “i accomplished so much, made you so proud… but now i got angel to lift me. #loveofmylife #bdaygotl s*** ma, i gave you all my bdays… wth do i do now 😂 millions of weetahs sugtas and homies #myfirstmylastmyeverything rest 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 Wayans children into the world, giving birth to one of the biggest and most successful families in show biz.
Elvira’s kids — 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.
