Rachel Mee, also known as Rachel Kaitlyn, was an influencer and UK OnlyFans model who passed away on December 18 just days before her son’s first Christmas. According to the Chronicle Live, the 25-year-old from Northumberland was also a business owner heading a custom clothing business, Rachel Mee Crystal Creations, which offered jeweled clothing and accessories.
Rachel was mom to her nine-month-old son, Kyro, who she had previously described as "my sunshine" to her followers on social media. The woman's cause of death has yet to be confirmed. However, a GoFundMe page her friend Claire Robinson created for her son Kyro stated, "Rachel sadly lost her battle with the pressures of this world.” The page further stated, "We are all so saddened with this devastating news how this world has failed such a beautiful young girl. and how she felt she had no other option but to no longer be here. Leaving behind her beautiful little boy who she adored with all her heart."
In a post from 2020, the model pointed out that "Instagram is not real life." In several posts, she also paid tribute to her mother and father who she lost over the years. Often times she would write about the struggle and grief she felt over the pain of not having her parents around. "Today, right now, this is my current situation. Tomorrow is my mam's birthday and she’s no longer here.. it’s fair to say my emotions are all over. One minute I’m up, the next minute I’m balling my eyes out and the worst part is, I have no control of it. It’s fair to say I’ve had to grow up pretty fast, I’m coming up 23.. lost both parents at a young age, jobless due to Covid-19." She further wrote that she is her brother's caregiver who is a person with special needs and she is trying hard to be financially afloat. She added at the time, "Grateful for all those I have around me who constantly keep my head on straight and love me for me❤️ Constantly trying to trust the process and pray better years are ahead."
