Dancehall artiste Mavado is mourning the loss of his mother, Elizabeth Gordon.
Gordon reportedly passed away at a hospital in Kingston on Thursday (March 11).
An Urban Islandz source says Mavado was really close to his mother, and the family is requesting privacy.
“Anyone who knows Vado knows that he and his mother are very close so of course he is gonna feel it. I know singer is a public figure but it’s been a rough period right now for the family so they’re asking for privacy as they deal with this and other matters,” the source said.
Mavado’s 18-year-old son, Dante Brooks is currently awaiting sentencing after he was convicted of arson, murder, and possession of illegal firearm has been postponed.
Mavado hasn’t made any public statements regarding his mom’s death except to change his Instagram profile photo to one with him hugging her.
