Michelle’s father, Dennis Williams was 68 years old. 15 years ago, Dennis suffered a stroke and had been dealing with health issues since then. He was also diabetic. According to MadameNoire, her father’s health pushed Michelle to become an ambassador for the American Heart Association’s “Power to End Stroke” campaign.
Beyonce’s mother, Tina Lawson, reached out to Michelle after she shared the sad news. “My Belle, I am so sorry !!! Your dad was a true warrior,” she wrote. “Yes, He is resting now and is with your beloved granny. I am so glad we had the time together in Hawaii, and that we talked for an hour last night we love you so much.”
In the past few years, Michelle has been open about suffering from depression. She has a memoir titled ‘Checking In: How Getting Real About Depression Saved My Life—and Can Save Yours’ that’s due May 2021.
