Messages of love and support are flooding in for well-known publicist Lerato Sengadi who is mourning the death of her mother.

The well-known publicist revealed her mother's passing on Instagram where she described her mom as her queen and best friend.    

"My sweet sweet Angel! The one I love the most. My Queen. My best friend. My Mawe. My everything!! I will love you forever..."

While she's dealing with a major heartbreak, Lerato's industry friends took to her mentions with messages of support. 

Media personality Somizi's husband, Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo, shared his sincere apologies that Lerato was going through such loss. 

Former OPW presenter Kayise Nqqula shared her shook at Lerato's mother's passing using the word, "What?" with broken heart emojis. 

MsCosmo shared her sincere condolences while Zoleka Mandela expressed that her heart reaches out to Lerato's heart during this time. 

Hip hop rapper Rouge wrote on her mentions, "Yoh, I'm so sorry babe... I'm sorry. Praying for you  through this..."

This is not the first time Lerato has experienced great loss. In 2018, she lost the love of her life, hip hop rapper HHP also known as Jabulani Tsambo. 

As she was fighting to be recognised as his wife, according to customary law, Lerato told Eusebius McKaiser in May last year on 702 that she's glad to be a catalyst for black widows because of the conversations her situation has sparked.

“These are conversations that are important and if I am a catalyst to those conversations happening then so be it. Black widows have been treated in the most vile, inhuman and degrading way once their partner passes for decades.

"I don't think there's one black woman who doesn't know of another black woman who has gone through this. This conversation is important because at some point we have to say enough is enough,” she said.
