Teena Marie 911 -- 'My Mom Is Dead'

12/29/2010 8:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Overcome with emotion, Teena Marie's daughter mustered up the strength to call 911 Sunday -- moments after discovering her mother's body at the family's Pasadena home ... and TMZ has obtained the heartbreaking recording.

**WARNING -- this tape is EXTREMELY emotional **

Teena Marie 911 Call

During the call, Teena's daughter tells the operator, "“I’m scared, I’m so scared! She’s lost her color…her color is gone."

Eventually, the operator realizes there is nothing she can do for the singer -- and instructs her daughter to wait outside for help.

As we previously reported, officials believe the 54-year-old singer died of natural causes -- possibly a massive seizure.

Usually I'm all for some good gossip, but this needs to be taken down. You can hear its a little girl crying over the sight of seeing her mom dead. There is no entertainment in this recording, it needs to be taken down. At least out of respect for the little girl that will now have this memory permanent burned into her mind of the day she found her mom dead. This recording needs to be taken down.

Not gonna listen to this recording. Why is anybody mad or surprised at tmz for posting this ? They get the dirt/news that nobody else can. That's why we all check out the site.

After hearing this, it needs to be taken down - but my reaction is that the 911 operator was pretty darned cold.

I dont know why but I listed... Her poor daughter should not have to listen to this again or have anyone else listed to it for that matter. Her mother is gone... Someone should post her moms hits rather than her daughters last call... PLEASE REMOVE IT!

@#10...THE OPERATORS HAVE TO BE CALM, IT IS A REQUIREMENT OF THEIR JOB...SHE DIDN'T SOUND NECESSARILY COLD, BUT JUST TRYING NOT TO GET EMOTIONAL...

@TMZ, POSTING YOUR DISCLAIMER THAT THE CALL IS EMOTIONAL DOESN'T EXCUSE YOUR OPPORTUNISTIC AND CRUEL MOVE TO POST THE AUDIO....AGAIN, HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF IT WAS YOUR DAUGHTER OR EVEN YOU ON THE PHONE RIGHT AFTER FINDING YOUR OWN MOTHER DEAD IN THE BED?
