The Mystery Over Diem Brown's REAL Age Is Finally Solved

Weeks after Diem Brown's tragic passing, we've received some important information regarding the reality star's true age.

After her devastating death in mid-November, there was a lot of confusion surrounding Diems's birthday — though some outlets reported she was born in 1982, public records can now confirm she was born in 1980.

So, why the bizarre mix-up?

Diem's sister, Megan Brown, has revealed that the MTV alum concealed her real birth year in order to further her journalism career, an industry that's unfortunately pre-occupied with age.

Megan explained:

"Cancer robbed Diem of 10 years of her life. She worked in an industry where age matters. Diem took a couple of years off of her age because of all the years lost, starting and stopping her journalism career because of treatments. She felt cancer took away enough from her. We all agreed whatever age she wanted to be, we would support her."

We totally understand why Brown hid her actual age. Regardless how you feel about the issue, it's undeniable that Diem deserved as much happiness as possible, even if that meant telling a white lie about her real birthday.

We're just sad Diem won't be here to celebrate in the future.

    Perez I am sure we can trust you to get to the bottom of her and CT as well. His instagram post was so sad, and yet certain news sources have tried to take away from it.

    firstly, RIP! let's hope for further cancer breakthroughs.

    and secondly, what a shame that people still put down people if they're older. we should be VERY proud of our age, as we gain knowledge and wisdom from it. a new generation of being unconcerned you're too old to start whatever career, or be in a type of job should begin ASAP….
