Ashley went on to reveal that she had discovered her mother’s body.

“It was a mixed day. When I was at home in Tennessee I met my mom every day and pop, so I went home every day. Mom said to me, ‘Will you stay with me?’ And I said, ‘Of course, I will,’ “Jude recalled.

“I went upstairs to let him know that his best friend was there and I discovered him. I have both grief and trauma to discover him.”

“My mother knew she had been seen and heard of her pain, and she was taken home,” he said.

“When we talk about mental illness, it’s very important to distinguish between our loved ones and the disease. It’s very real, and it’s false, it’s rude.”

Throughout her legendary life, Naomi was open about her struggle with severe depression.

In 2018, he wrote an open letter for Mental Health Awareness Week 2018.

“For everyone mourning the death of a suicide, an inevitable question arises: why did this happen? Unfortunately, we do not have a very good answer,” the musician wrote at the time.

“Suicidal people have problems with mood, emotion control and aggression, all of which involve isolated circuits in the brain that control these aspects of human experience,” Jude continued.

“But we still don’t understand how these circuits circulate in the brains of suicide victims.”

It is a pity that Naomi has been battling this disease for so long on the eve of the greatest honor of her career.

But we are sure that his family was somewhat comforted by the knowledge that while speaking, he helped others who were suffering and helped to overcome this debilitating disease.

Our thoughts go to the whole Jude family at this very difficult time.
