On Saturday, OnlyFans model Diana Deets, who also went by Coconut Kitty, took her own life.
Deets’ death was confirmed by a statement released to the models’ social media.
Prior to her death, Deets was accused of “baiting” users by digitally editing photos to appear younger than she was.
“Pain, it’s a blessing in disguise, fuel for growth,” wrote the model in a previous post, 7 News reported.
The model reportedly turned to OnlyFans after failing to provide a living selling her acrylic paintings, Rolling Stone reported.
“At that point, I was like, ‘How can I make money off my art?’ and that’s how I decided to do digital art,” she said. “And that’s how I created Coconut Kitty.”
Deets previously said comments on her appearance “bothered” her.
“Last Sunday, Coconut took her own life. It’s unfair. Life isn’t fair. We wish you guys could get to know her the way her friends and family did,” the statement began.
“She was such a light to this world, truly, she was always glowing. You could never slow that girl down. She was so hard-headed and strong, but also just so kind. With the biggest heart we have ever known.”

“She was always trying to lift everyone up around her, she wanted everyone to win,” the statement continued. “She always took in animals that needed a home. She was the type of person who would drop everything to help you with your problems and would always be in your corner. She would go to war for you if anyone dare try to hurt someone she loved.”
That smile of hers could light up a whole room, it would turn your whole day around. And her laugh. Her laugh was so contagious. She was so funny. She would get you to laugh till you couldn’t breathe. She loved to dance and sing, and just be herself. She was always her true self with her family and friends. Her energy was so pure. And we wish so much that we would have taken some of the darkness that was weighing on her heart. She always felt so deely, with her whole body, mind, and soul. She loved creating. She loved to make art and to express herself and we know a lot of you loved her too and she was always so grateful for you all. She was so strong for so long. She was amazing and just a beautiful person. We miss her so much and life is never going to be the same without her.
The statement continued detailing how Deets was a mother, sister, daughter, a best friend and role model.
“Her kids were her whole world. She was devoted to them and she wanted to make sure that they were loved,” the statement read. “All we ask is that you check on your friends and loved ones. You never truly know what someone is going through. Call them and tell tham you love them. You never know how much time you’ll have left with people you love.”
The statement concluded by providing information to Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.
