Leslie Joanne Wayne, the mother of famed hip-hop producer and DJ, Metro Boomin, was the victim of a
murder-suicide perpetrated by her husband over the weekend.

TMZ broke the story with sources connected to the investigation telling the outlet that Wayne appears to have been murdered by her spouse — not Metro's father — Friday night outside of Atlanta.

Representatives for the 28-year-old artist confirmed the death and requested privacy for the artist, whose real name is Leland Tyler Wayne, and his family during this difficult time.

Metro Boomin, whose chart-topping work with artists like Drake, Kanye West, 21 Savage and many more has made him one of the most sought-after producers in the business, credited his mother with much of his success.

He recalled her encouraging his music career and even driving 17 hours from their home in St. Louis to Atlanta every weekend to work with OJ Da Juiceman who helped hone and develop him as a producer.

In a 2016 profile for The FADER, Metro Boomin said his mother drove him 17 hours from their home in St. Louis to Atlanta to meet OJ Da Juiceman who, in turn, helped him grow as a producer.

"My name is Leland Tyler Wayne,” he told the publication of his mother who he described as a warmhearted, protective woman, whose support and care knows no limits. “My mom wanted to give me a name where, no matter what I wanted to do, I’d be able to do it. An astronaut. President. Whatever. Leland Wayne.”

The name of Wayne's spouse has not been released and an autopsy is being conducted to determine the official cause of death.
