Chanel West Coast is joining the slew of celebrities taking to Instagram to mark Mother’s Day today. The 32-year-old rapper and “Ridiculousness” star’s Sunday update was a big shout-out to the woman who picked the MTV face’s middle Chanel name, with West Coast sharing a double photo update as she shouted out mom Jamie “Penny Porsche” Dudley. Uploading stunning snaps from a flower field hike that was also a dog walk, the “Alcoholic” rapper sent her mother all the best, even shooting down men. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. They come as Chanel makes headlines for actually joking about changing her name – the former “Fantasy Factory” face has announced a move from L.A. to Miami and has been kidding around with a #ChanelEastCoast.
The photos, shared with Chanel’s 3.5 million Instagram followers, showed her all smiles and all legs as she rocked a skimpy and crochet white crop top with a matching and boho skirt, also going cowgirl in little booties as her mom wore an all-black pants look.
While Chanel’s mother held one dog and kept the other on a leash, Chanel chilled out by her mom as the two hiked a gorgeous field of flowers, with the rapper taking to her caption and opening: “Happy Mother’s Day to my momma!”
“Thank you for all you have done for me in my life to make me the woman I am today. Thank you for being there for me when nobody else is. Thank you for being such a light in everyone’s life you come into,” she added.
Chanel, who went full girl power in her gushing caption, thanked her mother for teaching her how to “love God,” continuing:
“Thank you for being so strong and independent and showing me that women do not need men to survive! I don’t know where I would be without you.”
Fans are now throwing out the IG handle of Chanel’s mother, with one replying: “We love you @jamiedeejourneys thank you for making Chanel ???❤️.” Chanel has opened up on her mother – scroll for the marijuana growing reveal.
West Coast was speaking to LA Weekly when she both revealed beginning to smoke weed aged just 11 and that her mom wasn’t above growing a little of the herb to help pay the bills. By 2016, when West Coast was already well-established, she was sending out thanks on Mother’s Day, writing:
“When everyone told me I couldn’t be a rapper, my mom always had my back and supported me — even though she loves her heavy metal and really doesn’t like rap music lol.”
