To commemorate King’s 50th birthday in January 2021, her son penned a heartfelt Instagram tribute that called her “the greatest gift I could ask for” and shared a picture of the pair cuddled up close. 

Happy birthday, my dear co! I am so proud and inspirated by you love, art, and gangsta! He said. He wrote, “To have you be there to take this life by the neck and make it yours was something I will always be grateful for.” Being a mother to you is the best gift that I can ask for.”

He said, “To become all that you want to be while still having time for love and support is really remarkable.” You are the superhero of marvel! I love you mama! Every day, every day!
