Simone Battle of GRL has Passed Away


Pop star Simone Battle has died at the age of 25.

The G.R.L. band member and former The X Factor U.S. contestant was found dead at her home in West Hollywood, California on Friday. Her death is reportedly being investigated as a suspected suicide.

The singer made it to the live show rounds of the reality TV show in 2011 and the following year, she joined five-piece girl group G.R.L. Their debut single “Ugly Heart” was released in the U.S. in June.

The X Factor judge Simon Cowell paid tribute to her on Twitter, writing, “I am so sad to hear about the news Simone Battle has passed away. She was such a fun nice person. It’s such a loss. Rest in peace Simone.”

Her four bandmembers wrote in a message posted on their official website, “Words cannot express the depth of our loss… Simone’s incredible talent was only surpassed by the size of her heart.”

Former That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama writes, “A very sad day 4 (for) all of us who had the blessing of knowing u @GRLSimone (sic). My heart & prayers are with my dear friends @GRL & Simone’s family (sic).”
