It's a heartbreaking day for Teen Mom fans. Former 16 & Pregnant star Valerie Fairman has passed away suddenly.
Valerie's brother, Robert Rivera, revealed to RadarOnline.com that the former reality star has died from a suspected overdose.
However, the Chester County Coroner’s Office was not immediately able to confirm that drugs were the cause behind her tragic death. The spokesperson said, "I don’t have any information to release about her at this time."
Over the years, Valerie had a drug abuse problem and reportedly checked into rehab. “She was fighting the fight,” her brother admitted. “She appeared in the right mindset. But the struggle was always there.”
Valerie leaves behind one daughter, 7-year-old Neveah.
“She loved Neveah,” Robert said.
Another pal, Stashon Smith, claimed that the reality star was determined to get sober in recent months.
