Jamal Edwards’ Mother Brenda Says She Held His Hand In Final Moment
Brenda recently had her first interview on “Loose Women” since her son’s tragic passing. She conversed with co-star Coleen Nolan to whom she revealed details of the artist’s Chelsea FC-themed funeral and his final moments on earth.
According to the Daily Mail‘s narrative, the panelist tearfully confirmed that Jamal died from a cardiac arrest and disclosed that she was holding his hand as he took his last breath in her home.
Her daughter Tanisha was also present in the home at the time of the music mogul’s death, and Brenda stated that it was a vision she would never forget.
The 53-year-old explained, “It was sudden and unexpected, and he went into the cardiac arrest, and he passed with us holding his hand. I get a little bit of comfort knowing I was with him.”
She added, “As much as that is comfort, at the same time, it’s a vision I’m never gonna forget when I wake up every morning, there are still photos in the house, and I look at him and say, ‘Goodnight baby.'”
The bereaved mother further recalled Jamal’s bright smile and funny laugh while stating she felt his presence constantly.
She received numerous supportive messages since her son’s passing, and she felt overwhelmed but also grateful as it meant a lot to her that the late DJ impacted many people’s lives.

Brenda mentioned that she had just found out about his plans, and she was glad to receive the directive. She went on to detail the funeral, saying it was a ‘homegoing service,’ not a funeral.
The ITV star elaborated, “We went back to Luton where he was born and had his homegoing service there. He was a fan of Chelsea, so we had a blue and white theme; it was beautiful.”
Everyone present at the service wore blue and white, and there was featured live entertainment. When Jamal was finally laid to rest, Brenda noted that it was lovely, and the clouds formed a J.
Following the 31-year-old’s death in February, The Blast reported that the grieving mother released a statement to confirm the saddening loss and honor the icon’s inspiring life.
In Brenda’s words, “It is with the deepest heartache that I confirm that my beautiful son Jamal Edwards passed away yesterday morning after a sudden illness. Myself, his sister Tanisha and the rest of the family and friends are completely devastated.”
She continued, ” He was the centre of our world. As we come to terms with his passing, we ask for privacy to grieve this unimaginable loss. I would like to thank everyone for their messages of love and support.”
The “Loose Women” panelist ended her statement by calling her son an inspiration to the world while stating that her love for him lives on, same with his legacy.
