How did Rachel Kaitlyn die? OnlyFans model, 25, tragically dies days before son's first Christmas
NEWCASTLE, ENGLAND: The tragic loss of UK model and influencer Rachel Mee, also known as Rachel Kaitlyn, who died at the age of 25 just in time for her son's first Christmas, has sparked grief on social media. The "devastating news" was revealed by her friend, Claire Robinson, on a GoFundMe page created for the late social media star's son, Kyro.
According to her friends, Mee, who had over 40,000 Instagram followers, was discovered dead on December 18. Her friend Robinson did not provide a precise cause of death, but she made the suggestion that Mee might have killed herself. Though, the exact cause of death hasn't been confirmed by any authority, as per International Business Times.
Robinson wrote in a GoFundMe set up to gather money for Kyro's future that the Newcastle native, who was also an OnlyFans creator and dancer, had just turned 25 and was the proud mother of Kyro, whom she gave birth to in March and "adored with all her heart." Robinson said she created the GoFundMe page to “raise some funds for kyro’s future just to take a little stress away from Rachel’s family and to help in some way.”
“Kyro’s mummy Rachel sadly lost her battle with the pressures of this world,” the grieving friend wrote, adding that her baby, who was born in March, wouldn't have his mother for his first Christmas. “This Christmas will be Kyro’s first, and devastatingly his mummy will not be here,” she lamented. “We are all so saddened with this devastating news, how this world has failed such a beautiful young girl and how she felt she had no other option [than] to no longer be here," as reported by New York Post.
In the meantime, a second GoFundMe was set up by a friend, Chris Coppen, to help cover the cost of Mee’s funeral. “I’ve been asked from the family of Rachel to set a GoFundMe up as there have been so many messages paying respects and asking how they can help,” he wrote.
Fans went to the star's GoFundMe and social media accounts to pay respects to the Internet celebrity. “I did not have the pleasure of meeting you Rachel, but I’ve had the pleasure of hearing wonderful things about you,” wrote one fan on GoFundMe contributor. Another said, “I feel completely saddened by the news of your passing & my heart aches for your son. RIP you perfect angel.” “This was such a tragedy,” wrote another. “I feel so much for Rachel’s poor son. RIP Rachel. Heaven has another star shining bright now," wrote another.
