Our thoughts and prayers are with rapper Lil Kim, who opened up on Thursday about the recent loss of her father, Linwood Jones.

Taking to Instagram Thursday, Kim wrote about suppressing her feelings during a night out and finding strength through friend and fellow rapper Trina.

“On this very day I found out my Daddy passed away. I was so distraught and had to put on a brave face and keep working because I had a show that same night,” she said in a caption.

Trina, whose mother passed away in September following a battle with cancer, immediately reached out to Kim, offering the rapper support as she grieved.

“When @trinarockstarr came into my dressing room we instantly bonded. She comforted me and it was exactly what I needed in that moment,” Lil Kim write. “It’s as if her Mom and my Dad brought us together and healed our friendship. We both have angels watching over us.”
