Trump Attends ‘Diamond’ Funeral Service, Says World Lost A ‘Star’

The former president said he didn't really know Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway's sister, Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, the other half of the the pro-Trump entertainment duo "Diamond and Silk."

  • Hardaway, 51, died suddenly Jan. 8.
  • Trump was among a several Republicans who spoke Saturday at the memorial service in North Carolina.
  • “The world has lost one of its brightest stars but I see that we have another star who was equal to but she stepped up and she is different,” Trump reportedly said. “I thought I knew them both, I didn’t. I knew Diamond, but I didn’t know Silk at all. I just learned about Silk. You’re fantastic, you’re going to carry on beyond, beyond anybody’s wildest imaginations.”
  • The former president has been pictured with the duo numerous times, including in the White House’s Oval Office.
