On May 13, 2018, he dedicated a tweet to her, telling fans about his unconditional love for his mother.
He wrote in the tweet, “I love my mama. More than anything. She has put so much love into me; I can’t help but love those around me to get rid of some of it. Sometimes it feels like pressure, but that’s also how diamonds are formed. #JustSaying. So if I love you a little too hard, blame her.” he concluded.
What Is His Net Worth?
