Megan Thee Stallion is mourning the death of her mother, Holly Thomas.

The Houston rapper confirmed the tragic loss in an Instagram post Friday: "The best mom in the whole world. The strongest woman on the planet," she captioned an old photo of her and her mother. "I can't even put complete sentences together rn RIP mama."

In a recent interview with Complex, Megan credited her mother as one of her biggest inspirations. Holly was once a performing artist who went by the name Holly-Wood.

"My mom was a female rapper, and when she would take me to the studio with her to record and everything, I was like 'Wow. I'm gonna do this. This is cool,'" she said. "So, that's, like, when I really realized I wanted to do [music]."
