The death has occurred of Lil Bo Weep, a YouTube sensation and vocalist from Australia who was just 22 years old.
Her death was attributed to “depression, trauma, PTSD, and drug addiction,” according to the post that her father, Matthew Schofield, made on Facebook to announce the news on Sunday (March 6).
“This weekend we lost the struggle for my daughter’s life against despair, trauma, PTSD, and drug addiction that we have been waging since we received her back from the United States via emergency repatriation DFAT,” Schofield posted on Facebook.
Since bringing her back from the United States through emergency repatriation DFAT, “we have been battling but shattered.”
“She battled hard against her demons as we all did side by side next to her and cleaning up the shattered pieces over and over again, until she was unable to fight longer, and we lost her.”
As her father, I cannot express how proud I am of her; she is my inspiration, my daughter, and my closest friend, all of whom I adore tremendously. As a result of the universe’s desire to have its angel back, she is no longer in pain.
In 2015, Lil Bo Weep, whose true name was Winona Lisa Green, started uploading music to SoundCloud.
At the time, she was releasing her music under the monikers that she had created for herself. She amassed a huge fan base on the internet, becoming well-known for songs such as “not ok but its alright,” “Sorry,” and “CODEPENDENCY.”
Her most recent contribution to SoundCloud was a track that was exactly one minute and fifty-five seconds long and was named “PTSD.”
Lil Bo Weep announced that she was launching a public TikTok account in her most recent tweet, which she shared on Twitter.
She said in the tweet, “This is a safe environment for those who desire to hear my ideas, responses, and all of that fun stuff.” “This is a safe space for those who wish to hear my opinions, answers, and all of that fun stuff.”
Since then, fans have sent their condolences and tributes online, noting on how the band Weep’s music impacted their lives.
A devoted listener shared their gratitude, writing, “Your music got me through one of the most psychologically trying moments in my life.”
Alice Glass added her voice to those of those paying respect by posting the following on Twitter: “R.I.P. Lil Bo Weep.
The first time I heard I composed this song 4 you,” I fell in love with your music almost instantly.
I am very sorry that you had to go through what you did. I wish this Angel was still here and that you had never been in contact with someone who would harm you. Please see below for other tributes.
