According to authorities, the death of girl group singer and “X-Factor” star Simone Battle has been ruled a suicide by hanging.
The cause of death was determined two days after the 25-year-old singer was found dead in her West Hollywood apartment by her boyfriend.
Her father, Anthony Battle, told TMZ that he was still confused about what happened and although he hadn’t spoken over the phone in the weeks leading up to her death, they exchanged text messages everyday.
I didn’t immediately know who she was until I started doing research and realized she was the beautiful black girl who performed in the red high waist shorts on “X-Factor.” She was so full of energy and life and had the world in front of her for the taking.
God bless her family and fans during this tough time!
