Our condolences go out to Kelly Rowland and her family as it was recently confirmed by the singer's publicist that her mother Doris Rowland-Garrison, 66, has passed away after suffering from a longtime health problem.

The Rowland's publicist confirmed the tragic news in a statement on Rowland's behalf. It reads, "It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison. She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman — and now mother — I am today. We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time."

The tragic news comes weeks after Kelly Rowland gave birth to her first child Titan Jewell Witherspoon with her husband Tim Witherspoon. Our thoughts are with the Rowland family at this sad time.
