Queen Latifah’s mother, Rita Owens, passed away on Wednesday after struggling with a heart condition for more than a decade, she announced in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share the news my mother, Rita Owens passed away today,” says Latifah. “Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldy but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.”

“She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over,” Latifah shares. “I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time. Much Love, Dana Owens (aka Queen Latif‎ah), forever Rita Owens’ daughter.”

Late Wednesday night, Latifah shared a video of a photograph of her mother with the caption, “143,” which means “I love you.”

‘Girls Trip’ Debuts with the Largest Box Office Opening Weekend for a Live-Action Comedy in 2017!

‘Girls Trip’ is making a huge splash at the box office this weekend.

As of now, it’s headed for a $30.4 million No. 2 opening weekend — the largest of any live-action comedy so far this year. That number not only doubled expectations for the film, but it’s also more than the film’s budget, which was a little under $20 million.

via Variety:

“Funny is funny. And it’s a really funny movie,” said Universal’s President of Domestic Distribution Nick Carpou, who pointed out that the $30 million number is an increasingly rare achievement for pure comedies. 

“Girls Trip” follows a foursome — Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith — who go out for a long overdue women’s weekend to New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival. Director Malcolm D. Lee is also known for his first feature, “The Best Man,” and its follow-up, “The Best Man Holiday.”

“Our four leads are excellent,” Carpou said. “If they make you laugh you’re likely to tell your friends. That’s what’s happening here,” he added, also pointing to the film’s marketing campaign and Lee’s ability to make films that “resonate.”

Congrats to the cast and crew!
