Reality TV star and businesswoman Naledi Willers has died.
It’s unclear what the cause of death is, but a close friend of Willers has confirmed that the star died on Tuesday.
She said an official statement would be released soon.
Willers was a model, television personality and businesswoman perhaps best known for her time on The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.
While it has not been confirmed as the cause of death, Naledi opened up about having been diagnosed with Stage 2 Triple Negative breast cancer in 2019.
“If I look like I’ve just been through a war, it’s because I have. On November 2019 I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. This was also the day I wrote the last exam of my law degree while waiting for the call bearing my results.”
“The world buckled down and braced for the impact of Covid-19 while each day I was terrified an encounter with the virus while on chemotherapy could result in my death due to my compromised immune system. In truth the lockdown also offered me shelter to go through all I have and still am going through out of the public eye. Life is what you make it and we choose how to look at things. This is how I chose to look at my reality,” the reality TV star said at the time.
Willers got married in 2017 to Metro FM DJ Quinton “Naked DJ” Masina.
The couple split up two years after tying the knot.
