Wiz Khalifa's Transgender Brother Dies On Son Sebastian's 4th Birthday [PHOTOS]
Wiz Khalifa’s 32-year-old brother, Dorien "Lala" Thomaz has sadly passed away. The news of his brother's death came as he celebrated the 4th birthday of his son, Sebastian.

There are very few details being released on Lala's death, with some suggesting Wiz's brother may have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. 

A funeral notice states, "Dorien "Lala" Thomaz, Age 32, passed away peacefully with her Mother by her side on February 20, 2017. Lala was born on October 31, 1984 to Peachie and Laurence. Dear sibling of Cameron Thomaz and half sister Lauren Thomaz; also survived by grandparents, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. At Peachie’s request all services will be private."

Lala, who was four years Khalifa's senior, had reportedly been living as a transgender woman. One report claims that Lala was the victim of bullying during childhood over his sexuality.

Wiz has not yet commented on the death of his brother, but was photographed celebrating his son's birthday over the weekend. The birthday bash was probably a welcome distraction for Wiz following the loss of his brother.

The rapper joined his ex-wife, Amber Rose, for a superhero birthday party for their son. Amber shared several photos from Sebastian's birthday, where the former couple were shown decked out in Batman and Batgirl costumes.

Wiz and model Rose were married in July of 2013, but filed for divorce in September of 2014. The former couple, who have joint custody of their son Sebastian, have remained quite close.
Several weeks ago, Amber and Wiz had tongues wagging when they were photographed kissing on the red carpet at a pre-Grammy party. Amber addressed the rumors they were back together on Instagram, writing, "Wiz and I are family and we will be family for the rest of our lives for Sebastian. We’ve been through hell and back so a kiss on the lips for a photo and a night out of fun is not a big deal for either of us, we are in a great place but we are still very much divorced and not together."
