Wynonna Addresses Mother Naomi Judd’s Suicide

On Sunday (May 29) Wynonna Judd cleared the air about the death of her mother and professional singing partner, Naomi Judd, who took her own life April 30 after a long an arduous struggle with mental health issues.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Wynonna wrote about the pain of her mother’s death and her feelings of helplessness. Asking “WHAT DO I KNOW?” she proceeded to answer:

“I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did.” “This cannot be how The Judds story ends.”

“I DO know, that I feel so helpless—right now especially.” “I DO know, that as corny as it sounds, ‘Love Can Build A Bridge.’ I find myself humming the song that Mom wrote for the fans, to myself here on the farm at night.”

“I really DO know, that I’m not able to do this grieving thing all by myself, and that it’s okay to reach out for help.” “I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing.”

Wynonna’s sister, Ashley Judd, also opened up about Naomi’s death in an interview with Good Morning America earlier this month.

“Our mother couldn’t hang on until she was inducted into the Hall of Fame by her peers,” Ashley said. “That is the level of catastrophe of what was going on inside of her, because the barrier between the regard in which they held her couldn’t penetrate into her heart, and the lie the disease told her was so convincing.”
