CELEBRITY Celebrity deaths

Several mega stars left us in 2021 and, sadly, 2022 continues that trend.

The most recent of which is Naomi Judd, who along with daughter Wynonna formed the famed country duo The Judds. Naomi has died at 76 to due to mental illness, her daughter says. 

“Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness,” Wynonna and sister, actress Ashley Judd, announced in a statement April 29. “We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”

Naomi has been open about her battle with depression throughout her decades-long career, and even wrote in her book 'River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope' in 2016 that she went public with her diagnosis because she wanted people to know mental illness is “not a character flaw, it’s a stinking disease.”

The Judds will be remembered as one of the most successful mother-daughter acts in country music history, with hits like 'Why Not Me,' 'Mama He’s Crazy, and 'Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Old Days).'
