The drag world just suffered a big loss.
RuPaul's Drag Race star Sahara Davenport, otherwise known as Antoine Ashley, has passed away.
The cause of death of the season 2 contestant is not yet known, but the biggest queens in the biz are mourning her death. Among all of the tweets and Facebook status updates honoring the diva, Logo also released a statement reading:
“Logo is profoundly saddened by the passing of Antoine Ashley who fans around the world knew and loved as Sahara Davenport. He was an amazing artist and entertainer who’ll be deeply missed by his Logo family. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, especially his boyfriend Karl, in their time of need.”
Karl is better known as Manila Luzon, a fellow drag queen who competed on the third season of the Logo reality hit. In a simple status update on Sunday, she wrote, "I love him so much."
Aww! Our heart goes out to you, gurl!
Sahara was loved by A LOT of people and she'll be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
