Toya Wright Loses Godmother To Cancer 3 Months After Death Of Her Brothers

November 21, 2016  |  


After going through the painful loss of her brothers Rudy and Josh this past summer, Toya Wright is facing yet another death in her family.

Wright’s brothers were killed in New Orleans back in July. They were discovered inside a car after midnight after being shot multiple times. Both young men were pronounced dead at the scene. Wright told People in August that the violence in her hometown doesn’t truly impact you until you are faced with such a loss.

“It was the worst news ever,” she told the publication. “Murders happen every day and this is another dark night in New Orleans. You hear about stories like this all the time, but it doesn’t really hit you until you get that call. It hits so close to home.”

Sadly, the author and reality personality is dealing with even more sad news. She revealed that her godmother Kathy, whom she grew up with, passed away after a battle with cancer recently. She shared the news on Instagram and noted that she can’t seem to get a break this year:


Just two weeks ago, Wright shared an image of herself with her godmother and other loved ones as they came together to surprise her with a sleepover:

We send our condolences to Wright and her family as they deal with her Ms. Kathy’s passing.
