Beenie Man has released an official statement regarding the passing of his mother, Lilieth Sewell, and he addressed reports that claim he was hospitalized after fainting at his mother’s burial site.

In the statement, posted on his Instagram page, Beenie wrote:

With sincere gratitude, there are not enough words to fully express my heartfelt thanks for the sympathy, love and virtual support my fans, friends, coworkers, family and my well-wishers have exted to my family and I during this difficult time. 

On Sunday, October 25th, I laid my Mom to rest. It was by fare and still is the most difficult thing I have ever had to do. Leading up to the day of the funeral I was physically involved in every aspect of the planning and execution. 

I kept telling myself, maybe if I remained active I will be able to function. Unfortunately, when it came down that very last moment, it hit me and it hit very hard. This would be the last time I would see my mom. Despite the noise, the singing, the mourning, all I could hear was silence while watching my mom’s body being lowered into the tomb. 

My heart broke and I blacked out for a few minutes. When I revived, I saw my closest friends and my family around me. 

Unfortunately, that very intimate and sad moment was recorded and then circulated around the world with false statements. I was not hospitalized. I was comforted by my friends and family.

Please continue to pray for us as we heal and move forward.

Love, light, and respect.
