A SERIES OF DEATHS
It is a difficult time for the reality star as she also lost two loved ones last year. She confirmed on her Instagram the passing of her Uncle Torrey and Aunt Louve.
She paid tribute to both relatives, recalling the memories and lessons they shared with her. She reflected on how her aunt and uncle helped mold her into the person she is now.
Williams is quite familiar with grief, as she also mourned the death of her father, Hosea Williams II, in 1998. He died of complications from a bone marrow transplant. He was 43.
Aside from deaths in the family, the RHOA cast member has dealt with other difficult personal issues. A year ago, her then-fiancé Dennis McKinley admitted to cheating on her.
In December, she revealed that she and McKinley had split. She also got arrested in July while joining a protest against the murder of Breonna Taylor in Louisville.
