Ok...first to say it....EATING DISORDER!!! She always denied it, but a super skinny 32 year old doesn't die from a heart attack unless it is drugs or anorexia.

32 years old having a heart attack, she must have been on a cocaine binge or something. 32 year olds just don't flop over dead like that...

OMG...32? cardiac arrest? She has been "lit" lately on interviews. I bet it is drug-related and I blame it on her "creepy" husband. I'm just guessing on this one, he gave her drugs or does them with her and knew she could OD.

VERY SAD:(


RIP Brittany....so sorry to her family and fans.


she was always so joyful!!!!!!
