News of Taylor’s passing broke via friends and family members on Facebook. “I can’t believe your gone,” Taylor’s cousin Dana wrote on Friday. “We just got close again and now ur gone. RIP Little cousin u will b missed!”

Another friend of Taylor’s shared a lengthy post expressing regret for not keeping up with Taylor as much as she would have liked due to both of them moving a lot, changing jobs, and other things. “I wish you didn’t have to leave all of us so soon…. RIP sweet girl… 😭😭.” More from her post:

All I ask please, pleaseeee is if everyone keeps Taylor Lewis’ babies & family in your prayers please!!!! This is never easy for anyone to have to go through in life…… No one should ever have to experience this…. I know her family and her kids need those thoughts and prayers so much…. Oh I still can’t even believe it 😭

UPDATE – Taylor’s sister Haylee Lewis shared this update on Facebook:

To whom it may concern,

I will start off by sadly saying, yes my sister Taylor has passed away. Considering my family and I just found out about 6 hours ago, we are all still very much in shock. It makes me extremely uncomfortable that no one in my family has released this information to social media, yet I open my Facebook to multiple posts relating to my sister’s death made by people that really didn’t have the place to do that. Also multiple people messaging me immediately wanting answers.

Like I previously stated this is all new and shocking information, so new that the autopsy hasn’t been fully completed. Nobody in my family, nor I have the answers that you are wanting. I think we deserve to give out answers when we are ready. Thank you for understanding.

Courtland Rogers does not have access to social media because he is still behind bars after his arrest for assault by strangulation in September.

It’s unclear how Taylor passed away. She has a history of getting into legal trouble, but it doesn’t appear she has been arrested since May 2017. However, Taylor’s recent Facebook posts suggests she has been struggling with depression and bullying.

“Can’t stand when someone knows your going through depression and they keep stressing you out instead of helping you!” Taylor wrote on Facebook on Wednesday, along with the 😩 emoji. “Leave me tf alone if your not helping me or telling me anything positive! ✌️”

On Thursday, Taylor shared this message on Facebook: “Being bullied and can’t do anything about it sucks! SMH really over it! I’m just swallow my pride! 😩🥺😢😕”

Taylor has two children. Jordan (aka Jaja) is her eleven-year-old daughter with Courtland. She also has a son named River, who will turn two next month.
