RIP Diamond Star 🐶💎⭐️ My heart is broken in half right now… Nathan and I have to share with you the devastating news of the passing of our 9 year old baby girl Diamond. Words can’t begin to explain the loss and heart ache we are feeling right now… for a third of my life she made me smile every single day. And to wake up this morning and not have her smiling back at me hurts so bad… I love you little Lynn. You will forever be a part of me. 💔💯 Nate & made a special memorial video, link in my bio.

“Words can’t begin to explain the loss and heartache we are feeling right now,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “For a third of my life, she made me smile every single day. And to wake up this morning and not have her smiling back at me hurts so bad.”
He and Nathan also posted a YouTube video to his channel that explained what happened in further detail. Jeffree said Diamond had been having health problems, including alopecia, for the past year and a half. But while he and Nathan were on vacation last week in Turks and Caicos, things took a turn for the worse.
“We got a call that she was doing really bad—like worse than ever,” Jeffree said. “We panicked and we started looking for flights home.”
Nathan’s best friend, who was watching Diamond, called the couple and told them Diamond had passed away before they could get to the airport.
Jeffree, Nathan, and their five other poms were able to give Diamond a proper goodbye once they got home, but the fam is still feeling the loss. Both Jeffree and Nathan said they would be taking some time off to “celebrate her life.”
They included some adorable clips of the pup in the memorial video, which you can peep below. Try not to cry. 😭
