Queen Latifah‘s mother has died after battling a heart condition for more than a decade … according to reports.

The rapper and actress revealed to People that her mom, Rita Owens, died Wednesday, saying … “She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over.”

Latifah had said when she’s not in California, she would stay at her mom’s home in New Jersey to help take care of her.

Owens had reportedly been taking meds and was aided by a defibrillator implanted in her chest to avert a heart attack. She also had to maintain a very healthy diet to live with the condition.

Latifah says she’s heartbroken, but knows her mother is now at peace.
