At the time of her death, her father, Michael, had revealed to TMZ that Lauren suffered from a heart condition that may have contributed to her demise.

However, a couple of months later, the cause of death was revealed to be a drug overdose. According to a report from E! News, Lauren died of a heroin overdose and fentanyl intoxication.
