Snoop Dogg Tends to Support Tyrese After 'Fast & Furios' Star Announces Mother's Death

Losing a parent is a painful experience, but when it happens, it can feel like the loneliest club in the world. After his mother, Priscilla Murray Gibson, lost her battle with COVID-19/pneumonia, Tyrese is likely experiencing grief.

In an Instagram post on Monday (February 14), Fast & Furious star Paul Walker shared the somber news with a video of his hand entwined with hers. He wrote in the caption, “On behalf of my family and everyone who ever spent anytime praying tor my mother This is the saddest moment of my life. My sweet Valentine just passed away.

"May the Lord Jesus Christ and his angels open the heavens and embrace her. This has broken our hearts and we can't believe it. May the Lord Jesus Christ honor your walk with him and embrace you into heaven. Mother, I ask that you hold my hand from now on and never let go. As a child and teen, you never let go of my hand."

Snoop Dogg knows firsthand how it feels to lose a mother. Beverly Tate passed away last October, and he was one of the first to offer Tyrese support.

He wrote, "Stay strong." There are several celebrities expressing condolences for Tyrese, including LaLa Anthony, Michael Blackson, D.L. Hughley, Soulja Boy, Trina, Swizz Beatz, Brandy and his Fast & Furious co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Considering they were once at odds, The Rock's comment was particularly emotional.

"I'm so sorry, brother," he said. “She was so proud of all you are and have become. Deepest condolences & love sent your way to you and your family.”

Tyrese suggested that his mother will always have a piece of his heart and will always be by his side. Snoop's mother made a special posthumous appearance during his historic Pepsi Halftime Show performance during the Super Bowl on Sunday night (February 13).

In the background, a photo of Tate and Snoop appeared as he rapped his verse to "California Love."

Later, Snoop thanked Dr. Dre - who produced the show - for allowing the tribute in an Instagram post that read, "Thank you.". Thank you, NFL. Thank you, @drdre, for letting me include my mom's image C in my set."
