"Dancing With The Stars'" Keo Motsepe shared a tribute for his mother's death, and his DWTS castmates shared their condolences in comments of the post.


"Dancing with The Stars" stars showed their support for their fellow dancer, Keo Motsepe, as he mourned the death of his mother.

Motsepe shared a photo of his mom making a kissing face toward the camera on January 9 to honor her as she had passed away a few days earlier.


His fellow "Dancing With The Stars" dancers shared their condolences on his post. His dance partner, Anne Heche, and pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy were a part of the DWTS crew who showed their support.

Chmerkovskiy shared a broken red heart emoji while his dancer partner, actress Heche, said she hoped he felt loved during his difficult time dealing with his mother's passing. She wrote:

Many other fans and friends commented below his Instagram post of his mom. The post gained over 22,000 likes, and the comment section was filled with love for the dancer.

Evanna Lynch, who was Motsepe's dance partner on the show's 27th season, commented that she was sorry for the loss of his mother and that his mother would be "proud" of him.

Another person to comment on his post was Motsepe's girlfriend, Chrishell Stause.

Another person to comment was DWTS alum, Sharna Burgess. She expressed her condolences and sent love to the South African dancer. Harley Erbert also commented something similar on his Instagram post.

Motsepe originally shared the news of his mother's passing on his Instagram story the day of her passing. He wrote a heartfelt message in the caption of the Instagram post:

"I love you mama. May your soul rest in peace ? ❤️"


Carrie Ann Inaba, a judge from the show, offered condolences as well as Pasha Pashkov and Gelb Savcheko, among many others.

Another person to comment on his post was Motsepe's girlfriend, Chrishell Stause. She wrote that his "beautiful mother’s soul" will always be with him.


The "Selling Sunset" star, unfortunately, lost her mother this year as well, due to cancer. There is no doubt Stause and Motsepe have been supporting and comforting each other over both their losses.

The couple regularly shares adorable photos of themselves. That is how their romance first went public in December as Stause had reposted a photo that Motsepe shared of himself kissing her on the cheek.
