R&B singer of the music group Blaque, Natina Reed, died Friday night after being hit by a car. She was only 32.
Reed, who was in the 90s group with Shamari Fears DeVoe and Brandi Williams, was killed in Georgia almost instantly after she was hit by a car.
The Gwinnett Police Department said the driver of the vehicle that hit the actress called 911 at around 10:30 that evening.
Reed was pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Center 29 minutes later.
Natina Reed was reportedly in the roadway on Lawrenceville Highway near Hamilton Road when she was struck.
Natina is known for appearing in the 2000 film “Bring It On”, where she played the role of cheerleader Jenelope.
She was a protegé of the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, who died after crashing her car.
Reed has a 10-year-old son named Tren Brown, whose father is rapper Kurupt.
Natina’s bandmate Devoe took to Twitter to pay tribute to the late actress, “My heart and my soul is in so much pain. My sister, my best friend, I will always love you.”
She added, “My world as I know it has forever changed. Until we meet again, may you find comfort in the arms of an angel. I love you Natina.”
Gabrielle Union, who starred along with Reed in the cheerleader flick “Bring It On”, also paid her respects tweeting, “#RIP #Sad #BringItOn”.
