On Wednesday (Feb. 19), actor Shemar Moore took to Instagram to share an emotional post regarding his mother’s death. “This is real life. Your baby boy is okay, but I’m hurting real bad,” Moore said in the series of videos he posted.

“It’s not a game. It’s not a joke. I’m hurting real bad. I’ve been offline for some weeks, now. I”ve had to keep a secret out of respect.”

“Ten days ago on February 8, 2020, my mother, Marylin Joan Wilson-Moore passed away. Trust me. I know,” Moore continued before breaking down with tears.
