Metro Boumin is plagued by a horrific family tragedy — he lost his mother to her husband, who later committed suicide… TMZ has learned.
The producer – who released hits for Coming, young thug, Gucci Mane, migos, Travis Scott, Duck, Kanye West and 21 Wildto name a few – received the tragic news over the weekend after her mother’s body was discovered by cops just outside the Atlanta area.
Sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ…MB’s mom, Leslie Joanne Wayne, appears to have been murdered by her spouse – not Metro’s father – who then committed suicide. We’re told it happened on Friday night, but other details are hazy.
An autopsy will be performed for an official cause of death. The Metro representative confirms that Leslie died over the weekend – adding that he and his family are asking for confidentiality during this difficult time.
Leslie raised Boomin and his 3 siblings in St. Louis. She is said to have been 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 would even drive him from STL to Atlanta so he could collaborate with artists he connected with, all in the hopes of launching his career.
She and her boy were incredibly close – even when Metro rose to international stardom, she was always at the forefront of his mind.
