The star, whose full name was Jacklyn Smith, was first majorly known on MTV’s Wild ‘N Out. She said she was in Miami to have a ‘mommy makeover’ done in a social media post she subsequently deleted, TMZ reported.
She crossed paths with DC Young Fly, 31, in 2015 while making the TV series. The pair, who never wed, are parents to three children – daughters Nova and Nala and son Nehimiah Prince
A BET Media Group spokesperson confirmed the tragic passing in a post on Wild N’ Out’s Facebook page Wednesday.
‘We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild N’ Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed,’ the spokesperson said. ‘Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild N’ Out cast throughout five seasons.
The statement continued: ‘More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children.
‘The BET Media Group extends our sincere condolences to the Smith family, DC Young Fly, B Simone, Nick Cannon, and all friends who loved and cared for Jacky Oh during this difficult time.’
DC Young Fly, 31, and Jacky initially crossed paths in 2015, the same year he emerged as a personality on the MTV series.
The pair, who never wed, are parents to three children – daughters Nova and Nala and son Prince. The baby mama was already one of the Wild ‘N Out personalities at that time. She was no longer on the series, and had been involved in marketing a lip gloss line titled the J Nova Collection.
DC Young Fly, whose real name is John Whitfield, had been in Atlanta filming new Wild ‘N Out episodes when he was apprised of the sad news.
