Rickey also took a moment to remember his son, recalling Brandon’s notable sense of humor, adding that he was “always the leader” and “always the prankster.”
In late January, Rickey shared news of Brandon’s passing on social media, noting that he received a call while on his way to the airport. In his emotional message, Rickey—who is also dad to D’Essence, 25, Taylor, 22, Malik, 21, and Aaryn, 21—asked fans and supporters for prayers during his family’s difficult time.
“I’m OK,” Rickey said in his Jan. 29 Instagram video. “Pray for my son’s mother and my son’s siblings.”
