According to a sad report hitting our database, Jaclyn Smith has died at the young age of 32. Smith was recently in Miami so this news has come as a shock, while the precise reason for her demise is still unknown as of the time of posting.
The mother of three reportedly informed her followers via a since-deleted social media post that she would be travelling to Miami for a “mommy makeover.”
Smith’s sad death has already been confirmed on social media. A statement from VH1 on social media reads:
“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.
