“Knowing where you came from begins with yo’ mama nigga!” Ancient Proverb I read somewhere. 😹🧐. On another level though, I’d be no where without the powerful women I was blessed by God to be raised by, or the mother of my children who continues to go above and, beyond for our little ones. 🙏🏾 Words can’t describe how thankful I am, and I’ll spend a lifetime ensuring that they all know that! I love you like that first breath in the morning! Happy Mother’s Day, to mine, and yours! ❤️🤘🏾#ohana #teamelaine #gramabrooks #mynana #MyRidahAuntieCheryl #mynewmamaloridana #Lboogiethegreat
McKnight added that his only fault was letting them have a sense of entitlement. The star singer made it known that he gave his kids everything they needed.
The 51-year-old shared that their relationship became strained because he cut his adult sons off at 25 and 22 so they could become independent.
