After a long and hard battle with Alzheimer’s, Kim, surrounded by family and friends, said her last goodbye to her father.
Back in 2012, Lil Kim revealed to OK magazine that she would be taking care of her father, Linwood Jones, even though they had a strained relationship. “We have to feed him, because he can’t make his own food. He can’t really pour juice. He can get dressed, but we have to help him sometimes. Basically we have to help him do almost everything. He can walk around and stuff like that. And again, it’s early stages,” she said of his Alzheimers diagnosis.
“He remembers to do some things, but sometimes he forgets some things. Like one time, he forgot to turn off the stove, and the coffee pot caught on fire. We had to run and put it out. It was really crazy”.
Even though Lil Kim is grieving the loss of her dad, she took to social media to explain that the tragedy led her to heal her relations with Trina, who also lost a parent recently.
“On this very day, I found out my Daddy passed away. I was so distraught and had to put on a brave face and keep working because I had a show that samee night. When @trinarockstarr came into my dressing rooom we instantly bonded. She comforted me and it was exactly what I needed”, she said. She continued, “It’s as if her mom and dad brought us together and healed our friendship”.
