Andre 3000′s Mother Passes Away, Reportedly On His Birthday

It’s always difficult when a loved one passes away but it seems especially hard when a mother is the one who’s passed on.  According to Billboard, reps for Andre 3000 have confirmed that his mother, Sharon Benjamin-Hodo, has passed away.  What hasn’t been confirmed yet is the cause of death.  But unconfirmed reports are saying that she was found dead in her Atlanta home on Andre‘s 38th birthday.
