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.

TMZ, you should be ashamed of yourselves...Why do you constantly post these emotional things???What entertainment can be gotten from listening to a daughter hysterical to find her mom dead..OMG..you *******s are truly heartless. I hope you do the same when one of you dies too.

When did Teena do drugs and what drugs did she do?? The lesson here is clear, you MUST take your medication if you have life threatening condition.

It seems pretty clear she died from withdrawl from her seizure medication and she'd still be alive if she simply took her medication!

Ummmm Neal?

EVERY DRUG known to man especially coke all throughout the 70s 80s and some of the 90s. She didn't clean up until 5 to 10 years ago.

NOTHING THAT WE HAVENT HEARD BEFORE OTHER THAN THE DAUGHTER SOUNDS VERY YOUNG EVEN THO SHE'S 18. CALL IS NOT LONG AT ALL. OPERATOR TELLS HER TO GO TO THE FRONT TO WAIT FOR AMBULANCE. THE CALL THEN ENDS. HARVEY HAS POSTED WORSE 911 CALLS IMO. HEY, IF THE CALLS CAN BE ACCESSED BY LAW AND DONE LEGALLY, WHY IS THERE AN OUTRAGE? IF YALL DONT LIKE IT CHANGE THE LAW FOR PUBLIC ACCESS. HARVEY DINT DO ANYTHING WRONG THAT ANY MEMBER OF THE MEDIA COULDNT DO.

I'm embarrassed and ashamed I listened to this. It's intrusive and cruel- and there is nothing of value to be gained by exposing this poor child's fear and grief.

Dear Harvey Levin and TMZ Staff,

How'd you like if this was your sister and mother?

Please take this down ASAP. It serves no purpose.

Thank you!

The Jew who runs TMZ has no feelings except for the money he can make. I hope someday when Harvey dies or is killed TMZ posts that 911 call...I'll gladly listen!

My heart goes out to this precious young lady. Losing your mom at any age is terrible, but especially bad for a young lady of 19. I pray that she musters up all the good memories she has of her mom and let them get her through this tough time.
