Very sad news out of Pennsylvania…
Valerie Fairman, who starred on the second season of MTV’s “16 And Pregnant” reality series, died of a presumed drug overdose on Wednesday in the bathroom of her Coatsville home. She was 23.
Valerie’s mom tells us she was at a friend’s home in Coatesville, Pennsylvania Wednesday when the friend repeatedly called for Valerie, who was in the bathroom, but she did not come out. We’re told the friend broke down the door and found her unresponsive.
The coroner is conducting toxicology tests to determine the exact cause of death but we’re told it appears to be an OD.
Valerie’s child, 7-year-old Nevaeh, is currently with her mom.
As for Valerie, she has been arrested a number of times. The charges include prostitution and resisting arrest.
She’s struggled with drug problems for years … something that was showcased on “16 and Pregnant.”
Below is a clip of Valerie on the show.
So very sad. My condolences to her family and my heartfelt prayers to Nevaeh.
