What a tragic end to an already sad tale.

Catfish is supposed to be a show about bringing star-crossed couples together, but unfortunately not every love story gets a happy ending.

Devastating.

As we told you in March, Afeni recently filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, who was supposedly gunning for half of her son's estate. Yikes!

Authorities say a coroner will investigate the exact cause of death, but for now it seems to be an apparent heart attack.

We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shakur family during this difficult time.
