WIZ Khalifa shocked The Masked Dancer nation as he was revealed as one of the final three contestants in season 5.
Khalifa is known around the music industry for his love for marijuana, portraying it in his songs and interviews.
Does Wiz Khalifa have a sister?
The rapper had a sister, Dorien ‘Lala’ Thomaz, who identified as transgender.
Sadly, Thomaz passed away in 2017 at the age of 32.
The 32-year-old’s cause of death has never been shared publicly.
However, Thomaz’s obituary stated she passed away “peacefully with her mother by her side.”
At the time, Khalifa tweeted, “The loss of my sibling has been the hardest thing I’ve had to deal with but [with] your prayers and well wishes my family will get through this.”
What did Wiz Khalifa’s mother say about her late daughter?
In July 2017, Khalifa’s mother, Peachie Wimbush-Polk, shared a few thoughts about her late daughter on Twitter.
“Lala really helped me walk the talk and live my most courageous life when she decided at 15 to live life as the woman she was on the inside.
“I was scared to death because people are hateful, also because if you hurt one of mine you MUST kill me.”
She added: “I’m choosing my kids over everything bih… that’s the job.”
Wimbush-Polk’s tweets came in support of NBA superstar Dwayne Wade’s praise for his 13-year-old daughter Zaya’s transition from male to female.
Wimbush-Polk also shared some emotional words on Instagram from the film Steel Magnolias, her child’s obituary, as well as a picture of her holding hands with her daughter.
“…there was no noise, no tremble, just peace. Oh God(dess), I realized as a woman how lucky I am.
“I was there when that wonderful creature drifted into my life and I was there when she drifted out. It was the most precious moment of my life.” —M’Lynn Steel Magnolias
“I have seen, heard and felt every bit of your love.”
