Reality TV star Ashley “Minnie” Ross from “Little Women: Atlanta” has died at the age of 34 after a hit and run accident in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday night.
Ross, one of the original members of the Lifetime series that follows the adventures of a group of little women as they deal with everyday struggles, succumbed to injuries at Grady Memorial Hospital the day after the accident.
A sixth season of the popular series which debuted in 2016 is set to premiere sometime in 2020.
“It is with profound sadness that we confirm on behalf of the family of Ashley Ross aka ‘Ms Minnie’ of Little Women Atlanta that she has succumbed to injuries from a tragic hit and run car accident today, April 27th at the age of 34,” her management told People magazine.
“The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
Ross had been dating music producer Slickbeatz since 2019. He wrote on his Instagram account: “The moment I saw you, I just knew it. I realised that you are all that I have been searching for all my life.
“I love you today, I love you tomorrow and I will love you the same 10 years from now. Ima miss you baby girl, love of my life.”
Ross is survived by her mother, grandmother, aunt, uncle and other family members
The last season of “Little Women: Atlanta” was described as a “dive deep into the world of hip hop music, performance, and culture that will stir up big rivalries.
“The Cheeks, Briana Barlup and Emily Fernandez, return to Atlanta, to take on their long-time foes The Tiny Twinz, as they compete to prove they are hip-hop heavy hitters and rising stars. Minnie is also looking to establish her own spot in the rap world by continuing to challenge the reigning Queen of Atlanta, Ms. Juicy.”
