Cam’ron’s longtime girlfriend, Tawasa Harris, has died.
On Thursday (Nov. 21), Harris’ close friend Latanya Marie shared the sad news on Facebook.
“R.i.p Tawasa… I didn’t sleep all night bc of all the old memories that kept poppin in my head of all the fun times we all had back in early 80’w/ my Cousin Teresa (r.i.p),” she wrote. “how she would bring me down the bottom to your house and we would go up to Southwest Philly.

The cause of her death is still unclear, although a comment on Harris’ cousin’s Instagram announcement claimed that she suffered a heart attack.
Cam’ron and Harris were friends for decades, initially meeting as teenagers. They broke up in 2002, which Cam admitted was a result of his “cheating, lying and trying to peruse a music career” in an Instagram post last year.
“She wanted me to go to school and we live a family life. But she understood my vision but she wasn’t going to be a part of it,” he wrote on June 23, 2018. “I just want to tell her thank you for having my back and being the disciplinary in our sons life. I didn’t have a father in my life so I could never tell my son no to anything. But because of her our son had 5 full academic scholarship offers.”
The two rekindled their love in 2017, following Cam’s split with his ex-girlfriend JuJu. Harris made their relationship official this past New Year’s with an Instagram post.
“Happy New Year from US,” she wrote. “Relaxing in bed all day. I put his phone on #airplanemode so none of those calls come through.”
Cam’ron hasn’t publicly commented on Harris’ passing. Some media have reported that Harris was the mother of Cam’ron’s son, Cameron Ezike Giles Jr. However, representatives from his team have informed REVOLT that this is untrue.
