Antoine tells TMZ that his mother, Jennifer, passed away Sunday in Decatur, Alabama. This was a shocking news for him as he believed she had overcome some of her recent health problems.

Dodson claims that his mom started having problems with her leg around the time he became well-known and had to have it amputated several months ago. This caused an infection that required some ICU time, but Antoine said she was improving.

Sadly, her health took a bad turn and Antoine received a Sept. 12 call from his mother to inform him that she had died. He says that doctors believe that she died from heart failure.
