The star revealed she was the victim of a morbid hoax, explaining that her account was hacked.

In the video, she explained: ‘First and foremost, as you can see, I’m alive,’ she also confirmed in a video. I might look a little busted, but my a** is here.’
She continued: ‘Anybody that knows me knows I would never do some s*** like that—ever…
‘I don’t know who hacked into my phone, and why that’s what they would want to put on there, but it happens. It happens to everybody.’
Saaphyri, real name Chijuan Castro, found fame after competing on season two of Flavor of Love on VH1 back in 2006.
