Former Wild ‘N Out star, Ms Jacky Oh!, also known as Jacklyn Smith, has died at the age of 32.
The entertainer and longtime partner of DC Young Fly died in Miami on Wednesday, although details surrounding the cause of her death remain undisclosed.
The Wild ‘N Out social media page posted the tragic news, sharing a picture of Smith alongside a statement from a BET Media Group Spokesperson.
“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,” the caption read. “Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild N’ Out cast throughout five seasons. More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children. The BET Media Group extends our sincere condolences to the Smith family, DC Young Fly, B Simone, Nick Cannon, and all friends who loved and cared for Jacky Oh during this difficult time.”
