X-Factor Finalist And G.R.L Member Simone Battle Dead From Apparent Suicide
This is so sad. A young singer who seemed to be achieving all her dreams is dead at 25 from an apparent suicide.
According to TMZ reports:
Singer Simone Battle, who rose to fame on the US version of “X Factor” … was found dead in her Los Angeles home … and TMZ has learned it appears to be a suicide.
25-year-old Battle was a singer in the girl group “GRL” … which was the reboot of the Pussycat Dolls. She signed on with the group after her run on “X Factor” … where she was a finalist, making it into the top 17.
The L.A. County Cororner’s Office tells us Battle’s autopsy has not been completed yet … so, nothing has been ruled out as cause of death.
Simone’s father told us she was found in the bedroom of her apartment in a West Hollywood neighborhood. He described her home as a guest house of a larger residence.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Simone’s death appears to be a suicide. She was found hanging in a closet in her bedroom around 8:30 AM on Friday.
