As a model, her gleaming brown skin, of course, looked absolutely flawless as it shone through the lens. Her outfit was also black, matching her black eyes, hair, and long lashes. 



Besides BET, Ray Cunningham, another star of one of BET's shows, "College Hill", also took to social media to share his grief over her passing. Taking to the caption, he wrote:

“Just got the worst news.”

He continued, stating that Taylor's passing hadn't really hit him yet. He also mentioned her kindness towards him when he revealed his alopecia diagnosis, stating that she was one of the earliest individuals to reach out to him. 



As no cause of death has been confirmed yet, it is currently uncertain why Taylor passed away. That being said, the model was on dialysis when she died and was known to suffer from an autoimmune condition called Lupus.

Another celebrity that recently passed away is rapper DMX. The music artist died at the age of 50 following a drug overdose that led to a heart attack. 

During his stay at the hospital, DMX went without oxygen for 30 minutes, which led to his brain ceasing to function. Unfortunately, even after he was put on life support, he suffered from organ failure.
