AceShowbiz - DC Young Fly has finally addressed Ms Jacky Oh!'s death. Just days after his longtime partner passed away at the age of 33, the comedian issued a statement to PEOPLE.
DC shared the message on Friday, June 2. "We thank everyone for their well wishes and ask for privacy during this difficult time," he told the outlet.
Jacky, born Jacklyn Smith, died on May 31 in Miami. She was believed to have flown to Miami to undergo a cosmetic procedure, just days before her passing at the age of 33. She recently posted on her Instagram page a picture of her posing with Zachary Okhah, MD or better known as Dr. Zach.
In the since-deleted post, Jacky let her followers know that she flew to Miami to get a "mommy makeover." She wrote in the caption, "Getting ready for my mommy makeover with Dr. Zach!! Stay tuned to my YouTube for the full reveal!"
Confirming the devastating news was the family. "It is with sadden (sic) hearts we share with you that Jakclyn aka MsJackyOh has passed away on Wednesday, May 31st 2023," the Smith family said in a statement. "Our family is still processing this very tragic and unexpected loss; we ask that you please give us privacy during this time."
Jacky and DC, who share three kids together, met in 2015 on the set of "Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'n Out". She was already being featured as one of the show's "Wild 'N Out" girls at the time DC made his debut on the series.
Jacky once recalled how she first connected to DC in a past interview with DJ Smallz Eyes. "We met during the filming time of 'Wild N' Out' in the lobby of a hotel," she recounted. "We started dating right after the show wrapped. I flew back to California, he flew back to Atlanta, and then I think I flew to Atlanta the next week or two weeks later."
