Toni Braxton’s niece Lauren “LoLo” Braxton has suddenly passed away at the age of 24.
Lauren’s father Michael, Toni’s younger brother, told TMZ that she died of a heart condition.
According to law enforcement, Lauren was unresponsive when Maryland police arrived after a 911 call on Monday. Soon after, she was pronounced dead by paramedics.
The official cause of death has not been determined. RadarOnline.com reports that an autopsy will be completed today.
After news broke about her death, Michael and Toni’s sister Trina wrote on social media, “God sent me another angel! Rest in Heaven Lauren 'LoLo' Braxton."
The sad news comes just a few months after Trina’s ex-husband, Gabe Solis, died at the age of 43 after losing his battle with cancer.
Toni, who was performing at the Tobago Music Festival, has not publicly commented on Lauren’s death. She did post a heartbroken emoji on one of Lauren’s Instagram posts.
Just a week before her untimely death, Lauren celebrated her son’s birthday. Along with a series of photos, she shared, “Happy 1st Birthday to my Lor Stink!! I love you so much💙.”
She had been known for posting sweet birthday tributes to her family on Instagram, including for her mom, grandmother, and best friend.
Lauren also showed love to her dad in several Instagram posts. She captioned one post from 2016, “My reason. My heart. My world. My everything. My father🤓 ❤️‼️💯#️⃣1️⃣.”
Michael was not a regular on “Braxton Family Values,” but he has appeared in some episodes.
