As we reported late last week, Ms Jacky Oh — whose real name is Jacklyn Smithdied unexpectedly on the final day of May. The Wild ‘N Out star was just 32 years old.

Days after her death, DC Young fly, whose real name is John Whitfield, lamented the bright star’s tragic loss. In a statement first noted by People, and later confirmed by E! News on Monday afternoon, the 31-year-old comedian and entertainer thanked fans for their support and asked that he be able to maintain some privacy from here on out:

“We thank everyone for their well wishes and ask for privacy during this difficult time.”

Obviously, that’s totally understandable. DC Young Fly shares three kids — Nova, 6, Nala, 2, and Prince’Nehemiah, 10 months — with the late woman. So there’s a lot he must now deal with regarding their care in addition to his own mental and emotional well-being.

As we’ve been reporting, Jacky Oh died in Miami on May 31. A cause of death has not been released in her tragic situation. As for DC Young Fly, he was said to be in Atlanta shooting new episodes of Wild ‘N Out at the time, per TMZ.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild ‘N Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed. Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild ‘N Out cast throughout five seasons. More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children.
