Sharing a photo of Brown smiling broadly, she told fans: "Johnny Brown, June 11, 1937 – March 2, 2022.

"Our family is devastated. Devastated. Devastated. Beyond heartbroken. Barely able to breathe.

"We respectfully ask for privacy at this time because we need a minute to process the unthinkable. To articulate the depths of profound sadness.

"This is my mom’s husband for sixty one years, mine and JJ’s dad, Elijah and Levi’s Pop Pop, older brother to George and brother in law to Pat and extended family to Chris, Hihat, Damian and Derell.

"It’s too terrible. It will never not be. It’s a shock. He was literally snatched out of our lives. It’s not real for us yet. So there will be more to say but not now. Dad was the absolute best. We love him so very much."
