Why did Marlon Wayan never get married?
Marlon Wayan, who lost his father Howell Wayans in April, and his mother Elvira Wayans, who was 81 years old in 2020, once explained why he didn’t get married.
“I never got married because I knew my mother needed me,” he said, according to ‘GMA’ in 2021.
“On his deathbed, I said, ‘Can I tell you something, woman?’ She was in a lot of pain and she was fighting to stay alive and I told her, “I’m 47 years old and I’ve never been married because I always wanted you to be my number one girl.” he added.
Wayan added: “My mom turned around, she looked at me, she grabbed my hand and she pulled me close to her. I said, ‘I know, I love you too. ‘”
He continued: “I gave him a kiss and said, ‘I’ll see you soon, but not this soon because I have so much life to live.’ She laughed in pain and I gave her a kiss, and those were my last words to my mother.”
