Ms Jacky Oh!, real name Jacklyn Smith and girlfriend of DC Young Fly, has reportedly died, according to TMZ.

The former star of MTV’s “Wild ‘N Out” died on Wednesday in Miami, though the cause of death hasn’t been revealed. According to a deleted social media post, she was in Miami to undergo a “mommy makeover.”

Smith and DC Young Fly met in 2015, the same year he made his premiere on the show. She was already featured as one of the “Wild ‘N Out” girls at that point. After some time, she left the show and launched her lip gloss line called the J Nova Collection.

The show posted their condolences on Instagram with a lengthy message.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild ‘N Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed,” the post read.

The post continued: “Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild ‘n Out cast throughout five seasons. More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children. The BET Media Group extends our sincere condolences to the Smith family, DC Young Fly, B Simone, Nick Cannon, and all friends who loved and cared for Jacky Oh during this difficult time.”

Smith and DC Young Fly had three children together, though they were never married. She was only 32 years old.
