  1. She probably was a drug addict who had a crazy Saturday night..... no 32 year old just has a heart attack, let's be real.

    • They said cardiac arrest, not a heart attack

    • People can, and have had fatal heart attacks at her age and even younger. Now, keep in mind, I'm not ignorant to the fact that she had drug problems. I think the list of celebs without prescription drug problems would be shorter.

      We had a 27 year old art teacher here where I live, went in to cardiac arrest and dropped dead in front of his students. Didnt smoke, didnt drink. never ever touched drugs. It happens. Regardless, it's sad that yet another life is lost due to doctors who will write scripts for anything for a fast buck. The medical industry needs to wake up NOW.

  4. RIP BEAUTUIFUL GIRL!!!

  5. Chad, have a heart dude, and don't judge. You don't even know the details... No matter the reason, someone lost a daughter.

  6. Yes it is possibly for a 32 year old to have a heart attack. I am a paramedic and have worked such calls. Very sad. Normally it is a family history of cardiac problems and or a pre-existing & unknown conditions. I have worked a heart attack as young as 21 years old and I know of nurses that have seen children with heart attacks. Anything is possible
