Clarence Avant is an American music executive, entrepreneur, and film producer, and he acquired the ‘Black Godfather’ title we are all familiar with today.

But, not only is he a music legend, he’s a political fundraiser, too.

His wife Jacqueline was not unlike her husband; she had a passion for politics, too.

Jacqueline actually served as the President of the Neighbors of Watts, an organization focusing on childcare.

And the apple didn’t fall far from the tree when it came to their children, Nicole and Alexander.

Nicole started out in the recording industry but became Southern California finance co-chairwoman for the Barack Obama 2008 presidential campaign, and Alexander is a music manager.

They’ve passed on a lot of culture and wisdom to their beloved children.

And, in every success either Jacqueline or Clarence has celebrated, the other has been standing right there beside them.

But now, after fifty-four years of marriage, Clarence, seventy-five, has devastatingly lost his partner and best friend.

And we cannot imagine what he’s going through right now.

She did not deserve this.

On Tuesday night, in the Trousdale Estates area, both Clarence and his wife were met with a home invasion, as per TMZ.

And although nobody knows as of yet if Clarence was hurt…
