Tyre Sampson was identified as the boy who died earlier this month after falling from ICON Park’s Orlando FreeFall rollercoaster. However, an Orlando strip club has recently fired a lady claiming to be Tyre Sampson’s cousin.

Shay Johnson recently spoke with CNN and local Orlando media about the fatal accident that was captured on video and shared widely on social media. The Sampson family has come forward to refute any claims that Johnson is related to them. In order to obtain clout and money, the random woman linked herself to the fatal tragedy.

Since the family separated themselves from Johnson, her employer Topless Go Go, has fired her. The Orlando strip club posted on Instagram, “We have separated our selfs from this individual that goes by multiple names she’s no longer welcomed her,”

Earlier this week, a family member shared on Facebook:


“Thank you all for reaching out! It is TRUE Shay Johnson real name Lewishena browning is NOT Tyre Sampson cousin. It is CONFIRMED by the immediate family that she is NOT Family for neither side. We just found out late last night and we are trying to assure the community is aware. The “REAL” family ask that you continue to provide them with space, prayers and positive words. They assured us htis situation is being handled by the authorities,”

Tyre Sampson’s real GoFundMe account has been shared by the family. People are still rallying around the Sampson family, ensuring that they have adequate space to grieve.
