Nelly is mourning the passing of his grandmother, Verna Haynes.
A few weeks ago, the rapper-turned-reality TV star told his fans he had been missing in action because his grandmother was very ill and he was spending most of his time with her.
Excuse me world if I haven’t been very active as of late my heart has been with this woman right here my Beautiful granny Who is very very ill and my strength has been with my father I love you very much VERNA HAYNES ..
Unfortunately, early this morning, Ms. Verna transitioned. Nelly took to his Instagram account to publicly mourn her passing.

We’re sending our love, prayers, and deepest sympathies to Nelly and his family during this difficult time.
