John Legend pays tribute to ‘caring and conscientious’ grandmother after her death aged 91

John Legend has paid tribute to his ‘caring and conscientious’ grandmother following her death at the age of 91.

The Grammy and Oscar-winning singer confirmed that Marjorie Maxine Stephens died on Tuesday, days after celebrating her birthday.

‘We are so grateful for the life she lived, for the love she shared with her many children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and beyond,’ Legend wrote on Instagram alongside pictures of his grandmother.

Legend, one of the few artists to have won an Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award, said Marjorie was ‘the most caring and conscientious grandmother you could imagine’, revealing she attended his first Grammys.

The 42-year-old continued: ‘She got to experience the successes of all her offspring. We are the family we are, the individuals we are because of the love she poured into us.

‘We are sad to lose her but most of all so appreciative of the full, blessed life she lived. May she Rest In Peace after running a great race.’

Last year All Of Me singer Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen, 35, were widely praised for publicly sharing their ‘deep pain’ after the death of their son Jack.

Teigen revealed in September she had suffered a pregnancy loss.

‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,’ she wrote.

‘We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.’

The tragic revelation was accompanied by a heartbreaking black and white picture which showed Teigen crying while in a hospital bed.
