To know the exact cause of her death, the coroner is conducting toxicology tests, but her mother said it must be due to the drug overdose.
She has left behind seven-year-old daughter Nevaeh. As she was a troubled person, Nevaeh was not in her custody. The child is now with her mother Janice Fairman who says,
“I have her child [Naveah], I've had custody of her," Janice said. "She's doing very well. She wanted to go to school because of the parties today, so I let her go to school, and the counselor said she's doing very well. She talked to her twice. She's surrounded by support and friends."
Her ex-boyfriend, David Pryce was saddened by her death and also hinted, her death might have been drug related. He said,
“I will always miss you Valerie, and I want to tell anyone who is selling s**t to people to stop,” he wrote. “We have lost too many loved ones to what you are doing…”
Her sister also tweeted, expressing her condolence,
“Valerie you will forever be missed. I love you baby girl, and I will always love you.”
MTV spokesperson said,
“We are saddened by the news of Valerie Fairman’s passing,” an MTV spokesperson said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.”
