R.I.P.: Actress And Plus Sized Model Mia Amber Davis Dead At 36

- By Bossip Staff

Rest In Peace:

Actress and plus-size model Mia Amber Davis has died suddenly following routine knee surgery. Miss Davis, 36, who was best-known for her role in the film Road Trip, collapsed the morning after the outpatients procedure at a Los Angeles hospital. Now her distraught husband, comedian Mike Yard, is demanding to know what happened, and why his otherwise healthy wife died after only a minor operation. He told Radar: ‘They are going to have to have an autopsy into the exact cause of her death. The doctors think it might have been a blood clot.’

Miss Davis, who was also a television producer and outspoken advocate for curvy women, had the surgery on Monday morning to correct an old basketball injury. Mr Yard was at the couple’s house in New York when his wife died, but said he had spoken to her the morning before the operation and she sounded happy and normal.

Miss Davis, who stood at six-feet tall and was reported to weigh 300lbs, worked as a television producer before getting a cameo role in the film Road Trip as Rhonda, the heavyset girl who seduces Kyle, played by DJ Qualls. She went to land a plus-size modelling contract, and this year became the creative editor for Plus Model magazine.
Her career was going from strength to strength, and on May 7 she wrote on her Twitter page: ‘Excited about the future.’

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  • whodat

    This is sad. Being a plus size model and advocate for ‘curvy’ women is all good until the knee goes out under the pressure of 300 pounds and a whole new set of complictions gets you. What a terrible way to go. And she was so young.

    • Soul Touch

      It’s true…when you are obese that’s the risk you run…the chances of these things happening, even for simple surgies, are MUCH higher.

  • no retards

    No she wasn’t obese she had knee surgery and blood clot. There is a such thing as being big and healthy if someone sees a fat football player he’s fit but a big womann then she is every ignorant name in the book. ……smh let her rest in peace

  • dragongirl

    When anyone has any kind of surgery done there is always a possibility that blood clot can form. It doesn’t matter if it’s knee surgery, delivering a baby or having heart surgery. Why they do these stupid out-patient surgeries and not keep people overnight to observe is a mystery to me. This is such a tragedy.
