Vlogger and TikTok star Dazhariaa died at the age of 18, leaving fans shocked with her early passing. With over 1.4 million followers on the video-sharing platform, Dazhariaa (or Dee, as she was fondly known) had amassed a wide fanbase and gained status as one of the most prominent celebrities on social media.
She had recently turned entrepreneur with her own brand named ‘Dee Beauty Outlet’ that sells products ranging from lip-care to apparel. On December 31 last year, she wrote of her brand, “I just opened yesterday I was surprised of how many orders I’ve gotten…. thank y’all sooo much for supporting me and my business… This might look very easy but trust me it’s not especially since I’m the only worker lol …”
Her last Instagram post came on January 23. Since her death, her profile has been flooded with comments from fans mourning her death.
Noyes’ father Raheem Alla shared a montage of pictures of his daughter to TikTok as he thanked everyone for their ‘love and support’.
‘Unfortunately, she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place,’ he wrote.
On a GoFundMe page established for his daughter, Alla added that he wished his daughter had talked to him before her death.
‘I only wish she would have spoken to me about her stress and the thoughts of suicide,’ he said.
While Dazhariaa’s father did not confirm the cause of her death, her fans on social media are speculating the young celebrity might have taken her own life.
The Baton Rouge, Louisiana, teen had nearly 100,000 Instagram followers, as well as a YouTube page that chronicled her life, as well as her attempts at doing viral challenges.
After her death, fans sent condolences to comments on her YouTube page.
“Rest In Peace gorgeous, this makes me so sad to hear that this happened,” read one tribute. “Your we’re definitely my favorite YouTube, tiktoker. It breaks my hurt so much to hear that this happened. it’s going to take me a while to get over that fact that this happened. This honestly broke my hurt so much.”
“I can’t believe u gone I always watch youu you always make me laugh with ur videos,” another fan shared on Instagram.
