The Ocean Eyes singer said her 'heart was shattered' after learning that her 'angel', Australian student Skylar Davies, had passed away. Skylar, 19, had met Billie at a concert in Sydney just months before her death and said the musician was 'the love of her life'. Billie shared several pictures of the pair hugging on her Instagram Stories. She wrote: 'Rest easy beautiful girl.' 'Sending every ounce of love I have to Skylar's family and friends. My heart is shattered,' Billie added.
The cause of Skylar's death is not known. Her devastated parents spoke of their grief after the sudden loss. Her father said there were 'no words to express our grief at this time', Daily Mail Australia reported. Advertisement 'Skylar meant everything and more to us and we are deeply heartbroken,' he said. 'She was an amazing daughter, sister and best friend.
She was the love of my life, my everything my universe.' Skylar met the Billie on 30 April after the Bad Guy singer's concert and posted several snaps of the pair embracing on her social media. She captioned them: 'Last night I met the love of my life & I am forever grateful.' Billie's tribute comes just days after she shut down trolls who wanted her to start dressing more provocatively when she turned 18. Sharing a snap of herself in her signature head-to-toe baggy outfit (which was Gucci, naturally), she called out any creeps who'd wanted her to 'immediately take all her clothes off'. And in a now-deleted caption, the star – who turned 18 on December 18 – wrote: 'U mad i turned 18 & didn't immediately take all my clothes off? booooooooohooooooooooooo.' Got a showbiz story?
