Wiz Khalifa has recently received the worst news imaginable, learning that his older sibling has died at the age of 32.

According to reports, the rapper's mother, Peachie, revealed that her transgender child, Dorien "Lala" Thomaz, "passed away peacefully" earlier this week with her mother by her side.

"The loss of my sibling has been the hardest thing I've had to deal with," he writes. "But with your prayers and well wishes, my family will get through this."

While details regarding the cause of death currently remain unknown, Khalifa's mother assured that her daughter passed away peacefully on February 20.
