Lil Mama received the news of her mother's passing while at an Atlanta concert. She immediately returned to New York to be with family.

It's always sad to hear of a young child that has lost a close parent. Her mother was a beautifulwoman to, she appeared in the lip gloss video. Lil Mamma's family is in my prayers. R.I.P Tyra Kirklan, you are God's Angel now.
at least her mother got to see her daughter starting to actually pursue her dreams before she passed- maybe thats what she was waiting for. Be strong Lil Mama!
Wow that's so sad. I feel for her, there is no pain like losing your mother. Stay strong Lil Mama and keep doing what you do.

I was listening to the 97.9 the box this morning and Nnette said that this amongst other rumors about deaths this weekend was false. I don't want to think my girl is slipping, but if just in case she wrong, my condolences go out to the family.
what a shame, to lose ur mother or any one u love especially around the holidays when families come together. my prayers are with u.

I hope this isnt true. But if it is, my prayers and condolences go out to her family..
Im sorry to hear this! Sorry to hear this!
Sending my condolences and prayers to Lil' Mama and her famly.
Is this really true??? It was just all over the radio last week that Soulja Boy's mother was killed in a car wreck and he released a statement thanking everyone for the support, clearing the air saying it never happened, and expressing the frustration with a hurtful rumor like that saying it almost gave him a heart attack hearing that away from home on tour. If this is true, condolensces to Lil Mama and family.
My concolences to Lil' Mama and her family through these trying times. May God Bless you and give you strength.
THAT IS SOOO SAD! WHAT A HUGE LOSS. RIP!
I STILL THINK LIL MAMMA IS THIRTY YEARS OLD. I DON'T CARE WHAT NOBODY SAYS.

Death is never a welcomed guest, expected or unexpected and even worse when its approaching such a family oriented time as Christmas. Now every Christmas thereafter they will hv that memory of her passing as well. :-( Be strong in your loss lil ma.
My heart goes out to Lil MaMa and her family.
my prayers go out to her and her fam...rip

She is so young too, such a tragedy. I guess when it's your time, it's your time.
I'm a grown *** woman, and don't know what I'd do if I were to lose my mom:(
Prayers & Blessings to Lil Mama and her family/friends/loved ones.
***, what really going on? Everybody's parents seem to be passing away lately.
She's young too. She's going to need lots of support and probably some counseling too.
Aww. Such a sad loss.
Hope she'll be okay.
Very sorry to hear about the passing of her mother... she's so young.
I am sorry to hear that. Lil Mama is so young to be without her mother now.
I'm so sorry,My own mother passed away due to cancer on March 26th of this year and I still haven't packed her things.I'm still not ready. I understand,remember to pray and know that her suffering has ended. Don't expect to feel like yourself anytime soon,give yourself time to make peace with it-however long it takes.Much love.
My prayers go out to her if this true, because you guys have been lying all weekend, talking about people dying.....to lose a parent is not a joke the $h!t and funny, it's heart breaking.....
May GOD bless her!!!!!
Even though I don't understand you.
Many prayers to Lil Mama and her family!!
