TikTok star Asia LaFlora, also known as TheyLoveSadity on the social media platform, has died at the age of 18.
The teen had over 550,000 followers and a total of 31 million likes as her videos focused on self-love, building confidence, and body positivity.
But reports revealed that the teen died on January 4 and the cause of death hasn’t been confirmed.
LaFlora’s grieving family and friends seemed to suggest that the internet personality took her own life.
Her heartbroken sister, Yanna, took to Instagram and wrote: “My heart is shattered into a million pieces. Heartbroken. Please pray for me and my family. God, oh I don’t know what is going on but Lord we need you. Asia why?! I loved you so much! Why did you do this?!”
LaFlora’s other sister, Ryn, shared memories in her Instagram stories and wrote: “We love you baby. I hope you at peace baby I love you SO MUCH I hope you knew that.”
Many fans expressed their condolences after LaFlora’s sudden passing.
One person tweeted: “I can’t believe she’s really gone I watch her videos all the time and to wake up to this news is crazy. I deal with mental health issues myself and she was one of the influencers I would watch to feel better It’s so sad that she lost her battle.”
Another wrote: “I hope Asia (theylovesadity) is happy in Heaven. I didn’t know her at all, but she seems to be happy, loving and caring from her TikTok’s. My prayers goes to her supporters, family and friends! Please check up on y’all friends.”
The teen’s aunt, Precious, set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses.
“It’s with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we have to share the unexpected passing of Asia LaFlora on January 4,” the page read.
“Asia was a loving, beautiful, smart and intelligent person. A life so beautifully lived and deserves to be beautifully remembered. All donations will be greatly appreciated.”
