Bryson Tiller On His Grandmother’s Passing: When She Died, So Did All My Self-Doubt & Insecurities

Singer Bryson Tiller was only four-years-old when he lost his mother. He was then raised by his grandmother, who passed away last month. Bryson Tiller recently took to social media to tell his fans, that when his “Maamaw” died, all of his self-doubt went away as well,

“When my grandmother died, so did all my self-doubt & insecurities. I just feel like she asked God personally to heal me and the rest of our family. it’s working 100%. Thank You Maamaw. we gon show out for you.”

The singer took the loss very hard and even temporarily deleted all of his Instagram posts.

Before deleting his feed, he posted a touching message, on social media mourning “the most important woman” in his life late last month.

“Today, I realized I lost the most important woman in my life. As I type this… I’m also realizing  that  never acknowledged you as the most important woman in my life nor did I treat you that way. I didn’t call as much as I should’ve. i didn’t do as much as i could’ve. you and i have always had a love-hate relationship and about a year ago i remember saying to someone: man i really need to be there more for my grandma regardless of what we’ve been thru because i don’t know how long you’ll be around. today is the first time i find myself only thinking about the good and not the bad. I’ve never lost anyone really close to me before, I’ve never understood how it felt.. i lost my Mother at a very young age so i couldn’t really process what was happening.

He continued,

“Today is the first time i carefully read the letter you wrote me 4 years ago and i tried my hardest not to get tears on it or let it blow away in the wind. I took it out of my important-things-box weeks ago and i told myself i needed to read it again carefully but i never got around to it. i ended up cleaning my room and putting it back in the box. in the letter your words were: im sorry i was so hard on you guys growing up, it was just really hard as a single parent taking care of you after your mom passed, i hope you don’t have any resentment towards me, im so proud of what you’ve accomplished” Maamaw im so sorry today i let go of any resentment i ever had towards you and im sorry i EVER complained about ANYTHING you couldn’t do for me. I love you so much and i wish i read this letter sooner because i would have called you to tell you that i promise i would have.”


Bryson Tiller recently announced that he was expecting baby #2, with his longtime girlfriend, Kendra Bailey, Bryson Tiller currently has a daughter with Harley Lorraine Tiller from a previous relationship.
