    It is suspected that she dealt with an eating disorder, which causes a lot of wear and tear on the heart and body. This is sad and pray for the family.

  • Kioki

    She is too young for this mess- May she R.I.P

  • Sydney™


    Wow, this has been some year. I think it’s the Academy Awards show that gives a tribute every year to people who have passed, and I think the number this year has been extraordinarily high (or it seems that way, IMO). Of course, many of us don’t know these celebrities personally, but it’s still sad to see such talented individuals leave this life, and at such young ages as well. You just never know when your time is going to come.

  • Nino Brown

    I wonder if i can get dibbs on her christmas presents. I bet i can get a hansome ransome on ebay for them. A n*i*g*g*a gotta get paid.

    @Nights Over Egypt

    Yes, same here. It was a very sad summer for me.

  • WordtotheWise

    Yeah Sydney. There does seem to be more deaths this year than anytime before. I actually love to see the “In Memoriums” during the awards show. Sometimes you see people you didn’t even know had died. The biggest shock for me was Michael’s death. Girl, that hit home. Having grown up with that him. Whew!

    Yep, we never know when our time is coming.

  • neema

    I am SO SORRY to hear this. How sad. I don’t know if she did drugs or anything. But, I have read that people who suffer from anorexia or are severely underweight can suffer from heart attacks. The reason is that when the body is not getting sufficient nutrients/calories from the diet, it will use its own tissues for energy. The goal of weight loss is for the body to use the excess fat tissues stored on the body. However, the body will also consume its own protein (muscle mass) for energy. The heart is a muscle. The difference between heart muscle and your quadriceps (for example) is that you can build up your quadriceps via exercise, but you cannot do the same for cardiac muscle (I read this elsewhere. I think it’s true, but now I’m wondering because some EXTREMELY obese people have enlarged hearts.) Anyway, I read about a woman who recovered from anorexia, and she said that though she is now healthy, her heart is still weakened from the tissue she lost during her illness. That’s why we should have a focus on being HEALTHY not SKINNY because you can die from being too thin as well. God bless her family.
