Diamond, born Ineitha Lynette Hardaway, of “Diamond and Silk” fame, passed away on Monday, former President Donald Trump announced. She was 51.

Diamond passed away at her North Carolina home in the presence of her sister, Silk, born Herneitha Rochelle Hardaway Richardson, Trump announced.

the former president added Diamond’s death “was totally unexpected.”

Trump said in a Truth Social post:

Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans. Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina. Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing. There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!

The conservative duo became famous on social media after being one of Trump’s earliest and most outspoken supporters, creating several viral moments backing Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign cycle.

Trump took fondly to the duo, reportedly considering them to be de facto “senior economic advisers,” and inviting them to the White House on several occasions.

Diamond and Silk eventually pivoted from social media and became regular guests on Fox News during Trump’s administration, appearing on programs like Hannity and Fox and Friends.
