“It is with incredible sadness that I have to share the news about the passing of my beautiful Daughter Maia. Maia, as my first born child, has been the joy of my, and her Mother Shikiri’s, life,” Johnson tweeted in part.

No cause of death is known at this time.

This is an incredibly tragic and terribly heartbreaking situation. I can’t imagine the kind of pain losing a child, especially such a young one, must cause.

It’s honestly beyond words what he must be going through right now.

Hopefully, he’s able to eventually find peace with his family and find a way to push through this horrific tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Johnson and his entire family during this sad time in their lives.
