Dazharia Shaffer, Rising TikTok Star, Passes Away at the Age of 18

Rising social media star Dzaharia Shaffer died on Monday (February 8) at the age of 18-years-old.

Coroner Shane Evans with the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office confirmed to People that they responded to a suicide death on Tuesday for Dazharia.

Dazharia‘s father, Raheem Alla — who also goes by Rodney Andry – shared a message on his daughter’s GoFundMe page mourning Dazharia.

“On February 8th my daughter dazharia has left us early and have been call[ed] up to fly with the angels. She was my little best friend and I wasn’t prepared in no way, to bury my child. She was so happy, and would be so excited to see me when I come [sic] home from being on the road,” Rodney wrote.

“I only wish she would have spoken to me about her stress and the thoughts of suicide. We could work thru this,” he continued. “I only want to hold you again my little jelly bean. Now I come home and your no longer gonna be there waiting for me. I have to let you fly with the angels. Daddy love you.”

Dazharia‘s mom, Jennifer Shaffer, confirmed her daughter’s death in an emotional Facebook post.

“I’m so heartbroken. I really can’t believe you’re going,” Jennifer wrote. “I wish I was waiting on you to say it was a prank but it’s not. I wishing could have died instead of u …rip my angel. Everyone talks about our bad times but never talk about the good times #babygirldee”

Dazharia had become a star on TikTok with over 1.4 million followers. She also had thousands of followers on Instagram and Youtube, where she would often document her daily life.
