Mother-of-one Carter died suddenly this morning (Saturday, December 23) in Florida, US although the cause of her death has not been announced.

In a statement to TMZ, her mother, Jane Carter said: ‘I am in shock from learning of the sudden death of my daughter, Bobbie Jean and I will need time to process the terrible reality of this happening for the third time.  

‘When I am able to think clearly, I’ll release a fuller statement; but until then I would request to be left to grieve in private.

‘However deeply a parent feels the loss of a child, the suffering of a young child at the loss of a parent must be much greater.

‘So, I would ask the sympathetic to say a prayer for my precious eight-year-old gr anddaughter Bella, who previously lost her father and is now also left without her mother.’
