Lauren Braxton, Niece of the Braxton Sisters, Dies at Age 24
The Braxton family is mourning the loss of a loved one. Lauren Braxton, daughter of Michael Conrad Braxton Jr., has died on Monday at age 24.
Lauren, who was rarely featured on “Braxton Family Values” but had a close relationship with her aunts, died in Maryland, according to what her father told TMZ.
Braxton said that Lauren’s death was related to a heart condition.
According to TMZ, paramedics received a 911 call around noon on Monday and responded to the family’s Maryland’s home. At their arrival, Lauren, better known as “Lolo” in the family, was unresponsive.
She was declared dead by paramedics on the site.
Trina Braxton confirmed her niece’s death on Instagram on Tuesday. She posted a pic of the late young woman, and added in the caption:
“God sent me another angel! Rest in Heaven Lauren “LoLo” Braxton."
Fans and friends took over the comment section to offer their condolences for the family.
Greg Leakes, Nene Leakes’s husband, wrote: “You have my Deepest Sympathy. Lean on God...”
“Oh my Lord! I'm so sorry for the Braxton family's loss. My prayers for comfort and strength be with you all. May this young lady rest well,” added a fan.
Lauren’s father, Michael Braxton, is the only son of the Braxton family and the second eldest of the siblings. Like his famous sisters, Toni, Tamar, Trina, and Towanda, he’s also a musician and songwriter.
Michael kept most of his private life, including his children, away from the spotlight. And Lauren followed his steps.
Her Instagram account is filled with love for her family. Like a birthday post she did for her grandmother, Evelyn Braxton, where she gushed about the matriarch's beauty saying:
“Sheeeeeesh We’ve been blessed. Happy Birthday to my beautiful grandmother! I love you so much. Enjoy your day!”
She also showed her appreciation for her aunts Toni, Traci, and Tamar on different occasions.
Shante Traynham, Evelyn Braxton, and Towanda Braxton’s publicist told Hollywood Life that “At this time, the family is requesting their privacy.”
Rest in peace, Lauren.
