"I can regrettably confirm Chynna passed away," a statement from her manager said, according to the publication. "Chynna was deeply loved and will be sorely missed." A cause of death wasn't revealed.
Chynna had previously opened up about her struggles with opiate addiction. "I felt crazy. I didn't want to be a statistic. I didn't want to go out that way and people be like: 'I told you so," or glamorize it [drugs], because I don't feel like that," Chynna told Vibe back in 2017. "It was nerve-wracking to be open, but when you see how many more people who are dealing with the same thing, it's good to have some kind of example of someone you didn't expect to be going through it."
