The cause of death has not been revealed but Shemar noted that she had “heart problems” and multiple sclerosis.
Shemar also shared another post set to Céline Dion's song “Because You Loved Me,” sharing pics and videos of them together. He wrote, “My Mama always said 'I was at the front of the line when God was handing out sons' .... and I always said 'Mama, you know I cut the line to get to you!' ❤️ I love you mama ❤️.”
In 2015, Shemar opened up about Marylin's struggle with MS. He told People magazine, “I just had to check myself and say, 'Listen, she's scared and asking for help, so let's help her turn in the right direction. I've just been learning about the meds and learning about how it affects different people. Five years ago, we thought she was going to be wheelchair bound. Then, by just doing some homework and really seeing what MS was all about, we learned that MS is affecting her, but not entirely. We were able to be specific about the MS and other factors in her life.”
