Jamal Edwards' mum Brenda reveals his sudden death was due to 'recreational drugs' and she's 'in a state of shock'

JAMAL Edwards' mum Brenda has revealed her son's sudden death was caused by recreational drugs.

Entrepreneur Jamal died holding his mum's hand in February after suffering cardiac arrhythmia at home. He was just 31.


The Loose Women star released a statement this morning, telling followers the news had left her in shock.

Brenda is now determined to raise awareness of the dangers of drug use in a bid to save lives.

She wrote: "Since finding out the news I've been in a state of shock, and I'm still trying to process it, but it's so important to me that I do address it as no mother or any loved one should have to go through what Jamal's sister, Tanisha, and I have been through since he passed.

"Jamal had the world at his fingertips – a zest for life and he was unwittingly taken away far too soon. Yet we have come to terms with what has happened, and Jamal is proof this can happen to anyone."

Brenda warned that one bad decision can ruin lives and that drugs are scarily unpredictable.

Sharing the special bond she and Jamal had, she continued: "We were best friends, and out of his many, many wonderful qualities the one that made me most proud was his mission to help others – he was the most selfless person I knew.

"He opened doors to let others walk through and from Jamal's own experiences in life he just wanted to help people thrive; to live; to connect; to love; to laugh; and most importantly to just be happy."

Brenda finished by drawing attention to the newly formed Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust – set up to provide a community for young people where they can develop their skills and learn who they are and what they want to be.

The grieving mum was inundated with support from followers, who praised her bravery and gave her their condolences.
