We are very sad to learn about the passing of Lil Bo Weep. The YouTube star was only 22-years-old.
Matthew Schofield confirmed on Facebook that Lil Bo Weep died on March 3. Fans were heartbroken because of the young singer’s sudden demise.
Matthew wrote, “his weekend we lost the fight for my daughter’s life against depression, trauma, PTSD and drug addiction that we have been fighting since we got her back from America through emergency repatriation DFAT but broken.”
The cause of her death has not been officially released yet.
According to Matthew’s post on Facebook, Winona Brooks (Lil Bo Weep’s real name) “fought hard against her demons as we all did side by side next to her and picking up the broken pieces over and over again but she could not fight any more and we lost her.”
In her recent Instagram post on March 22, Winona was mourning the anniversary of losing her baby. “I would like to do something in remembrance of her, preferably spread some flowers at a beach and spend the day just mourning,” she wrote. “I’d really appreciate if anyone online would be kind enough to do that for me and with me.”
In the video she was seen crying and explained. I am heavily dosed on Seroquel to avoid any psychosis from my CPSD. not only have I been mourning my child, I have recently found out my fertility has been affected by growing up with a severe eating disorder.”
Winona had turned her online platform into a safe space for her fans where they could let their “curiosity flow.” She wrote on Twitter, “made a public TickTock completely unfiltered for those who wish to let the curiosity flow. I will be doing my best to video answer any comments left on this account. This is a safe space for those who wish to hear my opinions, answers and all of that fun stuff.”
Our thoughts are with everyone involved in this incredibly sad situation.
RIP, Winona Brooks.
