Kelis' Husband Mike Mora, Passes Away at 37 After Losing Battle With Cancer

Mike Mora, Kelis' husband of seven years, passed away on March 13, according to Evan Ross, son of music icon Diana Ross. Evan announced the news via Instagram, using a black and white photo of the late photographer.

“We lost a brother Yesterday,” he wrote in a since-deleted post. “We will truly miss you Mike. Thinking of some of the great times we all spent together. You and @naztokio recording me at @dallasaustins studio in atlanta. First time I had ever really recording a record in the studio. You made it feel easy and safe.

“Everything I saw you do. Was built in passion. I loved connecting again with you. Hearing about your children and the life you and your wife have built. Im sending all the prayers and love to your family brother. @kelis RIP @mikemorafoto.”

Mora announced via Instagram in October 2017 that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer and given just 18 months to live. As Mora noted in one of his posts, he first became suspicious after experiencing debilitating stomach pains earlier this year.
