Mama’s Love: Queen Latifah And Her Mum Look Stunning At The VH1’s Special ‘Dear Mama’ Event

Hip hop legend and actress, Queen Latifah, 46, stepped out looking absolutely fabulous with her pretty mum Rita Owens to the VH1 ‘Dear Mama’ event on Tuesday.

According to reports, Rita, 66, has been battling Scleroderma, an incurable autoimmune disease that has caused scar tissue build up (pulmonary fibrosis) in her lungs, for some years now.

She also has pulmonary hypertension (blood pressure in the lungs), which affects her ability to breathe. She’s finally managed to put her condition under control with the help of her daughter and a combination of medicine, diet and exercise to stay healthy.

According to PEOPLE, few years back, Queen said in one of her daytime show, ‘The Queen Latifah Show’:

”Anyone who has a job and then has a family member at home who is ill, it’s 24 hours. You have to be there. They need you,” says Latifah, who enlisted friends and family members to help out while she’s at work. “I try to be as in the moment and as present as possible. And then I try to get some sleep and go to work and be present there and then go home and be present there.”

”It’s not a day or night that she doesn’t peek her head in my room and make sure I’m okay,” says Owens, a former high school teacher. “If it’s medical she’ll go in and grill the doctors and make sure they are doing what they are supposed to do. She sacrifices her time, her resources. She genuinely loves me and I know that,” her proud mum also said.
