Precious Harris, sister of Atlanta rapper T.I., has died.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., halted work on his VH1 show “Family Hustle” last week after his sister was involved in a car crash in Atlanta and was taken to the hospital.
Precious Harris “hit a pole, which triggered an asthma attack. The 66-year-old — who often appears on the show — was taken to a hospital where she's now in ICU,” TMZ reported last week.
Precious Harris’ daughter, Kamaya Harris, posted a tribute to her mother on Instagram.
TMZ reported that sources close to the family said Precious Harris had been on life support since the accident and was never responsive.
T.I.’s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle-Harris, posted a photo with her sister-in-law on Instagram last week, asking for prayers.
T.I. and Tiny “were devastated,” TMZ reported.
Fans of the family were quick to offer sympathy on social media.
