“It’s really hard for me to sum up the special connection I felt with such an amazing person who completely changed my life. There are so many memories, so many small details, so many different views and incredible feelings and stories,” she wrote.

“It’s impossible to summarize the journey I went on with Sophie. Even the most insignificant things felt enormous. I can’t explain how I feel and I can’t encapsulate what a unique person she was in one small social media post,” she continued.

“All I can say is that I will miss her terribly; her smile, her laugh, her dancing in the studio, her gentle inquisitive voice, her cutting personality, her ability to command a room without even trying, her incredible vision and mind. She taught me so much about myself without even realizing. I wish I had told her more how special she was, not just her music but her as a person. I love you and I will never forget you Sophie.”

Social media recently came to the support of Charli amid her mourning, which resulted in a mix-up with an influencer.

Charli D'Amelio Confuses 'HereForCharli' Hashtag To Be About Her When It's Actually For Charli XCX

Charli D’Amelio got a little confused over the weekend on social media.

The 16-year-old TikTok star spotted the hashtag “HereForCharli” trending and thought it was her fans posting comments and affirmations in support of her.

“Your kind words warm my heart i am so lucky to have you all by my side!! i love you bebs,” she wrote back to them.

However, it turns out that the hashtag is for Charli XCX, following the sad passing of avant-pop artist SOPHIE.

SOPHIE was actually a great friend and producer for a few of Charli XCX‘s songs who passed away after an accident in Greece over the weekend.

Many of SOPHIE and Charli‘s fans let Charli D’Amelio know about the confusion. However, her tweet still remains.

“hey girly believe it or not that hashtag actually wasn’t meant for you! i know it might be hard for you to fathom but there are others with the same name as you,” one Twitter user posted.

Another added, “Lmao this hashtag was to comfort Charli xcx after SOPHIE’s passing but now that you’ve said this every tweet is about you. Great.”

Sophie Xeon was born and raised in Scotland and started releasing music in 2013. The music star’s debut album Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides was released in 2018 and it was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Dance/Electronic Album category. SOPHIE worked with such artists as Madonna, Charli XCX, Kim Petras, and Vince Staples.

SOPHIE was transgender and discussed gender identity while speaking to Paper magazine in 2018.

“Transness is taking control to bring your body more in line with your soul and spirit so the two aren’t fighting against each other and struggling to survive … It means you’re not a mother or a father – you’re an individual who’s looking at the world and feeling the world,” the musician, who did not use gendered pronouns, said.

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to SOPHIE‘s loved ones during this difficult time.

Courtney Love happily hits the stage during the YOLA DÍA Festival held at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on Sunday afternoon (August 18) in Los Angeles.

Other performers in the line-up alongside Courtney Love were Lykke Li, Cat Power, SOPHIE, Megan Thee Stallion, Kelsey Lu, Empress Of and CupcakKe.

A portion of every ticket sold benefited the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles.
