A medical examiner first confirmed the young reality personality's tragic passing on Sunday, January 16, with very few details released to the public pertaining to what led to her shocking death.
Two weeks later, her family later announced that the 26-year-old had lost her battle with "addiction", which was followed by reports that she had died of cocaine and fentanyl overdose.
Now, Cashmyer's mother is speaking out about what triggered her daughter's relapse after she had completed nearly a year of sobriety following years of battling drug addiction.
"We’re heartbroken. It’s been very difficult," she told The Sun. "Michael dying was the trigger. But she did do it. She stayed clean. No one will take that from her."
As OK! previously reported, the former teen mom's fiancé Michael Schaffer — with whom she shared their daughter, Lyla Nalani — passed away on September 9, 2021, just over four months before Cashmyer's relapse.
The Maryland coroner's office later confirmed he died due to "heroin, cocaine and fentanyl intoxication."
"He was a bright light in the lives of everyone he knew, and he brought great joy and warmth to everyone he met with his one-of-a-kind sense of humor, and his generous and respectful nature," Schaffer's obituary read. "Michael was also a spiritual man, and he believed in the virtue of loving people unconditionally. He will be missed forever."
Schaffer's sister mourned his passing and praised her brother for his love for his family in a GoFundMe page created to help assist the family with bills and funeral expenses.
"In life things happen in which we have no control. Mike’s time on this earth has ended," she wrote. "Mike was so in love with Jordan and having Lyla was the highlight of his life. I hope we all help Jordan to lay Mike to rest without having to worry about a financial burden. Thank you."
