Wynonna Judd is opening up about her mother, Naomi Judd’s suicide this past April.
Wynonna, 58, sat down with CBS Sunday Morning for an interview and discussed the tragedy, saying she’s “incredibly angry.” Wynonna when asked whether she thinks the feelings would go away, said: “No, I don’t think so, not for a while.”
Wynonna admits to being angry because she was unable to help her mother, and admittedly even knowing of Naomi’s mental health struggles, did not realize that she had gotten to a place of suicide, admitting: “I did not know that she was at the place she was at when she ended it. Because she had had episodes before and she got better. And that’s what I live in is like, was there anything I should have looked for? Or should I have known I didn’t?”
"She had incredibly great days in the middle of the dark days."
