OnlyFans model, 25, dies suddenly days before son's first Christmas

Heartbroken friends have described OnlyFans model Rachel Kaitlyn, 25, as a 'beautiful and kind soul'.

An Instagram influencer and OnlyFans model who died suddenly just days before her son’s first Christmas has been remembered as a “beautiful and kind soul”.

Rachel Mee, who went by Rachel Kaitlyn online and had tens of thousands of followers, was found dead on December 18, friends have revealed.

The social media star from Newcastle in the UK turned 25 just six weeks ago and was the proud mum of Kyro, who she gave birth to in March and “adored with all her heart”, Claire Robinson said in a GoFundMe created to raise money for the infant’s future.

Although her cause of death hasn’t been confirmed, Ms Robinson appeared to suggest she had taken her own life.

“Rachel sadly lost her battle with the pressures of this world,” she said. “This Christmas will be Kyro’s first, and devastatingly his mummy will not be here. We are all so saddened with this devastating news, how this world has failed such a beautiful young girl and how she felt she had no other option [than] to no longer be here.”

Ms Robinson said she hoped to raise some money for Kyro to take “a little stress away from Rachel’s family” and possibly give “Kyro a little head start in life”.

A second GoFundMe has also been created by friend Chris Coppen to help pay for Ms Mee’s funeral. “I’ve been asked from the family of Rachel to set a GoFundMe up as there have been so many messages paying respects and asking how they can help,” he said.

Influencer's death is 'utterly heartbreaking'

Both fundraisers and the 25-year-old’s social media have been flooded with tributes, with some people describing her death as “utterly heartbreaking”.

“Blessed to call you a friend. You have left a hole in my heart,” one person said. “I’m going to miss your beautiful, kind soul so much. You didn’t deserve the struggles you had…a complete angel before you gained your wings,” another wrote.

Others said they hoped Ms Mee was reunited with her mum, who previously died of cancer. “Rest In Peace with Mumma. You were such a fun, caring and open girl — everyone loved you and everyone will miss you,” a friend said.

“I know it’s sad when anyone goes too soon…but this is such a hard one to swallow. Anyone that knew her would agree she was such a ball of energy,” another added.
