Reality TV star Gina Marie Krasley has sadly died at the age of 30, weeks after she revealed she was suffering from a mystery illness.
The My 600-Lb Life star died on Sunday, August 1, “surrounded by her loving family” in Tuckerton, New Jersey, according to her obituary.
Her loving obituary states that Krasley’s “greatest passion was dancing” and she would often make up fun dances with her sister and her friends as a child, adding that she created the “dancing has no size limit” viral TikTok trend. It also claims that she had big dreams of opening her own dance studio for “special needs children.”
A funeral service is set to take place on Sunday, August 8, in Little Egg Harbor, NJ. The family is requesting that all visitors please wear “pink or purple” as those were the TV personality's “favorite colors.”
A month before her tragic death, Krasley revealed that she was immobile and struggling with debilitating pain in her legs, according to AceShowbiz. She also noted that her fingers were so numb that it was hard for her to even hold a phone, was receiving at-home care and was expected to see a neurologist four days prior to her passing.
Krasley appeared on season 8 of TLC’s hit series, My 600-Lb Life, where she weighed nearly 700 pounds. After leaving the show, she reportedly sued the production company alleging mistreatment, according to Lipstick Alley. She alleged production set up scenes that showed her to be overeating.
As OK! previously reported, Krasley’s season 8 costar Coliesa McMillian died last year at the age of 41 after suffering complications following weight-loss surgery. McMillian’s daughter Hannah revealed the tragic news of her mother’s death on Tuesday, September 22, via Facebook.
“Last night you gained your wings omg you know how hard this is for us! But you was sic tired of fighting but I’m not mad at you. You held off this long. I just never knew this soon you would leave,” Hannah captioned a series of photos of her late mom. She ended the sweet post by calling her mom her “guardian angel.”
