“I’m so sorry Mike,” Nia Long commented. “We’re praying for you and your family. Love you.”

The Indiana native shared the sad news on December 27, 2020 but that isn’t the day she passed. According to Joy 105, radio host and comedian Rickey Smiley sent his condolences to Epps regarding the passing of Reed on December 22, 2020 on his radio show.
