The actor and famed R&B singer posted the heartbreaking news on his Instagram page

His mother was hospitalized last week, when he had asked fans and supporters for prayers after she was placed in an induced coma. 

“On behalf of my family and everyone who ever spent anytime praying for my mother, this is the saddest moment of my life,” Gibson wrote on Instagram. “My sweet Valentine just passed away.”
