Social media is mourning the death of UK model and influencer Rachel Mee — better known as Rachel Kaitlyn — who passed away suddenly before her baby’s first Christmas.
She was 25 years old.
The Newcastle native, who was also an OnlyFans creator and dancer, was reportedly found dead on December 18, Jam Press reported.
Her friend Claire Robinson confirmed the “devastating news” in a GoFundMe page set up for Rachel’s son Kyro.
Although her cause of death has not been revealed, Robinson indicated that Rachel took her own life.
“Kyro’s mummy Rachel sadly lost her battle with the pressures of this world,” Robinson wrote.
At the time of her death, Rachel had over 40,000 followers on Instagram, where she regularly uploaded glamor shots of herself in swimwear.
Bereaved fans took to social media and GoFundMe pages to pay tribute to the late online sensation.
“I did not have the pleasure of meeting you Rachel, but I’ve had the pleasure of hearing wonderful things about you,” wrote one crestfallen GoFundMe contributor. “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.”
“Rest easy Rachel,” mourned another. “I admired your strength.”
“If only you knew how much you were loved and admired.”
