The troubled singer was found dead today in her north London home. She was only 27 years old. The singer had been very open about her battles with drugs and alcohol throughout the years, but the cause of death has yet to be connected to either one. More from the BBC:
"Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.
