In a very sad turn of events, it has been confirmed that 18-year-old Dazharia Shaffer, a social media star known simply as “Dee” on TikTok, committed suicide earlier this week.
In a series of videos shared with her 1.4 million followers dated February 8, Dazharia captioned “last post”.
Her father Raheem Allah aka Rodney Andry addressed his daughter’s death in a shared TikTok video. “I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter. Unfortunately, she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place.” Raheem continued to pay tribute to Dazharia, saying, “My daughter Dazharia has left us early and has been call[ed] up to fly with the angels. She was my little best friend and I wasn’t prepared in no way, to bury my child.”
He concluded, “I only wish she would have spoken to me about her stress and the thoughts of suicide. We could work thru [sic] this. I only want to hold you again my little jelly bean. Now I come home and you’re no longer gonna be there waiting for me. I have to let you fly with the angels.”
