American record producer Metro Boomin has lost his mother at the hands of her husband.
Metro received the tragic news this weekend after his mother’s body was discovered by cops just outside of the Atlanta area.
Metro’s mum, Leslie Joanne Wayne, appears to have been murdered by her spouse, who is not Metro’s father, before he then killed himself.
An autopsy will be conducted for an official cause of death.
Metro’s representative confirms Leslie died during the weekend, adding that he and his family request privacy during this difficult time.
Leslie raised Boomin and his 3 siblings in St. Louis.
She was one of the first people to notice her son’s musical talents and encouraged him to pursue his passion through adolescence and early adulthood. She’d even drive him from STL to Atlanta so he could collaborate with artists he was connecting with, all in hopes of getting his career started.
Leslie and Metro Boomin were incredibly close and the record producer always celebrated her via his social media accounts.
Metro has dished out hits for Future, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Migos, Travis Scott, Drake, Kanye West, 21 Savage and other big names.
