Katie May, the 34-year-old model, died Thursday in L.A. after suffering a stroke on Monday, reported TMZ.
The model’s family told the New York Daily News that she had been recently complaining of neck pain and had been seeking treatment when she suffered from a blockage in her carotid artery.
May, featured in both Playboy and Sports Illustrated, was also known as the “Queen of Snapchat” and has 2 million followers on Instagram. She was a social-media queen, by definition.
May was also the mother of a 7-year-old daughter, Mia, for whom the family has started a GoFundMe page. The page says the following about the model and social-media star:
