Very sad news. Kelis‘ husband has passed away.
R&B singer Kelis‘ husband, Mike Mora, has passed away after battling stomach cancer. Actor Evan Ross announced the photographer’s death in a now-deleted Instagram post. He said:
“We lost a brother Yesterday. We will truly miss you Mike. Thinking of some of the great times we all spent together. You and @naztokio recording me at @dallasaustins studio in atlanta. First time I had ever really recording a record in the studio. You made it feel easy and safe. Everything I saw you do. Was built in passion. I loved connecting again with you. Hearing about your children and the life you and your wife have built. Im sending all the prayers and love to your family brother. @kelis RIP @mikemorafotos.”
Kelis‘ management later released a statement, confirming her husband’s passing:
“Sadly, it’s true that Mike Mora has passed away. We would ask all to respect Kelis and her family’s privacy as of right now. Thank you.”
Mora told his followers that he was diagnosed with stage IV stomach cancer in 2021. At the time, he was given approximately 18 months to live. He’d already been fighting the disease for 12 months in Oct. of that year.
Kelis and Mike Mora tied the knot in 2014. Mora leaves behind 2 small children, along with a stepchild.
He was 37-years-old.
