Music producer Metro Boomin is faced with a horrific family tragedy, he has lost his mother at the hands of her husband, who then took his own life thereafter … Media Music News has learned.
The music producer, who’s created hits for rappers Future, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Migos, Travis Scott, Drake, Kanye West and 21 Savage, just to name a few received the horrible news this weekend after his mother’s body was found by police just outside of the Atlanta area.
Sources that are knowledgeable of the investigation tell Media Music News, Metro Boomin’s mother, Leslie Joanne Wayne, seems to have been murdered by her husband, not Metro’s father — who then killed himself. We are told this happened Friday night (June 3), but further details are unclear.
An autopsy will take place for an official cause of death. Metro Boomin’s representative confirms Leslie died this weekend, adding that he and his family request privacy during this difficult time.
The producer’s mother raised Boomin and his 3 siblings in St. Louis, Missouri. Sources say, she was one of the first people to recognize her son’s musical talents and encouraged him to pursue his passion through adolescence and early adulthood. She had even driven him from ST. Louis to Atlanta so he could collaborate with recording artists he was connecting with, all in hopes of getting his career started.
Leslie and her son were very close — even when Metro achieved international fame, she was always at the forefront of his mind.
