Chris Brown’s mother Joyce Hawkins effortlessly pulled off a fierce and stunning look in a recent photo-shoot, proving there’s more to her than just being a superstar’s mom.
Hawkins took to Instagram a few days ago to show off her daring ensemble of a sheer black top, denim shorts, and thigh-high leopard-print boots.
She pulled off the outfit with very heavy makeup and bright-red nail polish, also wearing her long hair down to the side in soft curls. Hawkins chose a sitting pose on a white couch surrounded by colorful pillows that complemented her bold outfit.
“AMAZING SHOOT!!! THANKS TO MY ENTIRE TEAM,” she wrote in the caption before tagging the people responsible for her hair, makeup, attire, and overall styling.
The former day care center director also shared another picture from the shoot. This time, she sizzled in an all-black outfit and strappy gold heels while showing off a lot of skin. A glass of champagne in one hand added to the glamorous feel of the photo.
For most of her time in the public eye, Hawkins has been known as the relentlessly supportive mother of Chris Brown. Even her Instagram handle says it all -- @mombreezyofficial; Breezy being one of the pop icon’s nicknames.
Living in a modest house in Tappahannock, Virginia, Hawkins was always a staunch Christian and raised her son the same way. Despite his multiple run-ins with the law, Chris still professes to be a Christian faith, hanging on to his mother’s religious upbringing.
In 2009, when he infamously hit his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, and seemingly incurred the wrath of the entire world, it was his mother’s back he leaned on.
Brown developed a newfound appreciation for his mom after his time in anger management rehab, and a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the duo was continuing to strengthen their relationship.
“Moms will always be Moms and they’re great. They are speaking and have been working on their mother-son relationship when he was rehab and that will continue now that he’s out.”
Hawkins has also been a great help with her son’s daughter, Royalty. She adores the little girl, and her Instagram page is filled with pictures of them having fun at home.
Last August, she took Royalty along to surprise Brown during the final performance of his nationwide “Heartbreak On A Full Moon” Tour and the singer could not contain his excitement.
The “With You” hitmaker shared a photo of himself hugging his mother and daughter on stage and, alongside a red heart emoji, wrote:
“MOMMA AND LIL MOMMA SURPRISED ME.”
