Nile Rodgers' mother, Beverly Goodman, who had been battling late-stage Alzheimer’s, has died.
"My mom #BeverlyGoodman #RIP passed away around 6am today. I breathed some of my 1st breaths with her and she breathed some of her last with me. My brothers and I will contact everyone soon. Today I’m numb," Rodgers wrote on social media Sunday afternoon (Dec. 27). He shared a heartbreaking image of himself laying his head down next to hers.
Just before Christmas, on Dec. 23, Rodgers had written a message about how much he missed spending time with his mom over the holidays.
