Brenda Edwards has broken her social media silence following the tragic death of her son, Jamal.
The Loose Women panellist has taken to Instagram and posted two beautiful photos of her 31-year-old son – who reportedly passed away on February 20 from a sudden illness – stood alongside herself and daughter Tanisha.
She simply captioned the images with a red love heart emoji.
The post has accumulated over 36,000 likes and hundreds have taken to the comments and paid tribute to the founder of SBTV.
One wrote: “Thinking of you and sending all our love.”
Another added: “Brenda my heart bleeds for you. Here for you whenever you need me. From one mother to another, be strong and be proud of the amazing son you raised. His life was short, but he was a lion whilst he lived.”
“Babe super proud of your courage and strength. Here for you every step of the way,” a third commented.
“What a gorgeous pic. You can see the love in it,” a fourth penned. “So sorry for the loss of your darling boy.”
After the music entrepreneur’s death was spread on social media on Sunday, Brenda Edwards’ fellow Loose Women panellists took to the show and slammed the way it was announced.
Panellist Charlene White fumed: “The opportunity to share Brenda’s loss and the family’s loss was taken away from Brenda because of various people on social media who decided to tell Brenda’s story and Jamal’s story without consulting Brenda, which was not fair in any shape or form.
“We understand a lot of Jamal’s incredible work was done through social media – he is a powerhouse, he changed the UK music scene in a way that we’ve not seen for generations – but what people have to understand is, there is work-life and there is family life and there is home life.
“It should have been Brenda who was able to choose when the world knew about her loss and that was taken away from her.”
