Diana Ross has broken her silence on the death of Mary Wilson, a fellow founding member of The Supremes.
As reported, the 76-year-old singer died suddenly at her home on Monday (February 8).
Now, Ross – who performed with her for many years as part of the legendary Motown group, has paid emotional tribute to a woman whose story is forever interwoven with her own.
Her words below…
Via Twitter, Ross wrote:
“I just woke up to this news, my condolences to you Mary’s family, I am reminded that each day is a gift, I have so many wonderful memories of our time together “The Supremes ” will live on, in our hearts. “
The ladies layered narratives are well-documented and have inspired movies, plays, documentaries, and more.
But what has always and continues to be clear is that the love and respect between the stars has never wavered.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Mary’s family.
