B. Simone has come under fire after she encouraged fans to join her “Close Friends” subscription while grieving the untimely passing of Jacky Oh!
Apparently, B. took to her Instagram Story and wrote:
If your not on my close friends your not going to see much of my life during this time.
Close friends i love you…thank you for being a safe space 🙏🏾❤️
See her original post below.
B. Simone is being accused of trying to monetize her grief by encouraging people to join her subscription service.
One person tweeted:
B Simone is asking for ppl to pay for access to her close friends as she “grieves her friend” Jacky Oh.
How you could ever bring yourself to use your friends passing as a means to get ppl to pay for your close friends is insanity. This is beyond low & disgusting.
Another post wrote:
B Simone telling people to pay for her close friends access during this time is really tastless.

B Simone is still the same weirdo I’ve always figured she was cause making money off your friend’s death is weirdo behavior. That’s the problem with bitches nowadays they cut their hair start a podcast, read a bible passage or two and claim they’re spiritual. pic.twitter.com/e2KnRW2M3Y— Cole’s World 💁🏾♀️🌎💜 (@BIGCole91) June 6, 2023

B.Simone is not a good woman and you can’t tell me any different. Lol using your close friends death as an opportunity for a money grab is quite sickening. Asking people to pay to be in your close friends, distasteful— D💎🎤 (@TheDosageBrand) June 6, 2023
When the news of Jacky Oh!’s passing went public, B. Simone took to Instagram to pay tribute to her friend.
She shared a video montage along with the caption:
God you are a provider. Although we don’t understand right now, I truly know you will provide everything her children need, her family needs her friends need …now and forever❤️ From peace of mind to clarity. I truly believe in the name of Jesus. We need you Lord and I know you are there 🙏🏽 Even during the darkest time I will praise you and Thank you in advance for the miracles and peace that is coming. You are worthy of the praise . Thank you for allowing me to experience Jacky and I thank you for her life Jesus🙌🏽
I can’t sleep tonight. Jacky we miss you girl 💔 Your besties are broken. Your family is crushed & I honestly am still in shock. I feel guilty going on with life. I’ve never lost anyone close to me and I can’t believe you are gone. I love you so much. One of the main things giving me peace right now is the fact that you were intentionally growing your relationship with God. You have always loved God, but the way you were seeking Him recently was just different. Your excitement for Him lately makes me tear up. It’s like you knew you were going to meet him soon so you had to be ready 😪 Man Jack you lived life to the fullest. You were an amazing friend , entrepreneur, and above all a phenomenal mother. I never understood how you balanced all of it but when I become a mom I want to be just like you. You have a village down here that will ALWAYS make sure your children know the exceptional woman their mother was. Something I would always tell you is that I loved how consistent you were with how you showed up no matter how you felt . You were the same since the day I met you …. Full of joy PURE joy!
You never had a bad day and if you felt down you still had no attitude, no moodiness you just chose happiness. Happiness was a choice you ALWAYS made. I have no regrets when it comes to our friendship because every time we talked, we poured into each other. I know you loved me and I know you KNOW I loved you. This is devastating, but I know you made it through those gates. To my beautiful unicorn fairy glitter princess friend MSJACKYOH from tha scooooo I LOVE YOU ❤️ Go awffff jackyyyyyyyyy . Until we meet again…. “Hi Zaddyyyyy” *Your tone* 😘

B. Simone has not responded to the backlash, but I guess at this point…she’s used to it.
