In a Facebook announcement, the sisters dedicated a post to the late star, revealing that the singer had been quietly suffering from depression for years. Unfortunately, her condition has escalated really quickly throughout the past few months leading her to her attempt in suicide.

According to local newspaper, China Press, it was reported that on July 2, CoCo was at home with her family having lunch before she headed to the bathroom. She didn’t show any signs of wanting to attempt suicide but at approximately 3pm, she was seen running out of the bathroom, with a bleeding wrist.

Subsequently, she was sent into the hospital for emergency treatment, but she has lost consciousness and slipped into a coma. After resuscitation, CoCo began showing signs of life as her vitals became stable but unfortunately, after 48 hours, she succumbed to her injuries and passed away after.
