A Los Angeles County coroner’s spokesperson confirmed on Monday that singer, Simone Battle’s cause of death has been ruled a suicide by hanging.
The G.R.L. group member was found dead in her Hollywood home on Saturday morning. The former X Factor contestant’s manager and record label confirmed the news over the weekend in a statement that read:
“Simone was an exceptional young talent and human being, and we are all devastated to learn of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this time.”
The 25-year-old’s fellow group members, Paula Van Oppen, Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada and Natasha Slayton also released a statement on the group’s Instagram page.
“Words cannot express the depth of our loss. Simone’s incredible talent was only surpassed by the size of her heart. We will carry her memory with us in everything we do.”
HipHollywood talked with a very happy Battle back in May about working with Pitbull on his track, “Wild Wild Love.” The starlet shared with us one life lesson from Pitbull that she seemed to hold on to. “‘The word listen. When you scramble it, it’s silent. It sunk in, you have to hear each other. You can’t always want to be heard because then you don’t hear what everybody else has to offer,'” she told us.
Pitbull also took to social to express his sadness following the death of the young star.
Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation
Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!
Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.
The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.
Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
