This was April’s first public statement since her husband passed last Tuesday.

In the wake of his death, his family released this message asking for privacy.

“We know there have been so many people who have felt LaShawn’s impact, and want to share in remembering him, but out of respect for our family, LaShawn’s memorial service is Private and by the family’s invitation only. This is a solemn time for our immediate family and we wish to keep it personal.”

Continuing “To ensure the privacy and sensitive nature of the occasion, no media will be in attendance and only invited guests will be included on a list managed by trusted individuals,” the statement said on Instagram.

LaShawn and April previously appeared on “Tamar & Vince” and LaShawn said this about his marriage to April back in 2012.

“I think the most enjoyable aspect [of doing ‘Tamar & Vince’] has been letting people into the real of marriage,” LaShawn said at the time.

“In marriages, you have ups and downs and everything isn’t a bed of roses all day, every day. … I think it’s enjoyable just letting everybody see that marriage is a work in progress, and as long as you love who you’re with that work is nothing.”
