On Monday, Ndegeocello updated people by saying that her mother’s car was ticketed at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, so she asked that everyone near that area keep an eye out for Johnson.
Ndegeocello has talked briefly about her in the past, stating that Johnson had an eighth-grade education and was a stay-at-home mother who was also pretty religious. This is clearly a very tough time for the singer and her family. It’s been especially tough as Ndegeocello has attempted to try and complete touring obligations while also trying to track down her mother.
