As other people commented about the party, one Instagram user brought up how Brown’s emotions also could be in part to the entire family missing Kim Porter, who tragically died in 2018.

Brown recently paid tribute to his late mother on March 22, in honor of International Women’s Month, during his “First Female” campaign for Goggle. The actor celebrated Porter by acknowledging the many accomplishments she’s experienced in life, including being a loving mother. “Kim Porter was coined the First Lady of Hip Hop, a trailblazer, a trend-setter for Black girls everywhere, but for me, she simply was my mommy. She filled my life with a multitude of firsts. She was there to give me hugs and kisses and just fill my life with pure unconditional love.”
