Katy Perry Pens Heartfelt Tribute to Late Mentor & Close Friend Angelica Cob-Baehler

Katy Perry is sadly mourning the loss of one of her closest friends after her battle from cancer.

The 34-year-old singer took to Instagram on Tuesday (November 27) to share a heartfelt tribute to music executive Angelica “Geli” Cob-Baehler.

“Six days ago, one of my biggest champions and realest friends, Angelica Cob-Baehler moved on from this place,” Katy wrote. “She was one of the strongest women I have ever known – fighting her cancer like friggin’ Rocky, enduring chemo, immunotherapy, a tracheotomy, feeding tubes for months on end, and experimental cancer treatment trials.I watched her go through many stages for over a year, but a few things remained constant: her sarcastic/wicked sense of humor, her positive outlook, and the incredible love she had for her family.”

Katy went on to share how Angelica was there for her from the very beginning of her music days and how she helped launch her career as a singer.

“We had a lot of wins together for over 10 years, and I am incredibly grateful she was a born fighter/no shit-taker because she practically willed me into existence as a young artist when she ‘stole my files’ from limbo at Columbia Records and brought them to life at Capitol Records,” Katy continued. “She was like a big sister to me, showing me the ropes and always having my back. “I have procrastinated posting this because it makes it feel a little too final, but I don’t believe people ever really die – she just had to leave that body behind. Out of body, and full of spirit now.”

Katy concluded her post by asking followers to donate to Angelica‘s favorite charity, Generosity.org, in honor of Giving Tuesday.

“She may be gone from this place, but she will never be forgotten,” Katy wrote. “Rest in power, my angel, and don’t worry, we got Chapman and the girls. #RIPGeli.”

Angelica sadly leaves behind two daughters and a husband.
