Lamar went on to say that despite difficulties in their relationship, he knew that his Vietnam veteran father cared about him.

He wrote: 'Life is not promised. My pops and I had our differences but at the end of the day I knew he loved me and I loved him and that’s really all that matters.

'I encourage you to take some time and make amends with family and friends, tell someone you love them, smile a little more, laugh out loud, give your heart to those that deserve it because NOTHING is promised but death.'
