“Teen Mom OG” reality star Farrah Abraham took to Instagram Thursday to mourn the death of Valerie Fairman. The young mother appeared on the second season of “16 and Pregnant,” along with “Teen Mom 2” stars Jenelle Evans and Chelsea DeBoer.

“I feel so heartfelt with sadness of the struggles Valerie was going through I deeply am saddened by this tragedy and I wish that others around Valerie could have helped her,” Abraham, 25, wrote to her 805,000 followers. “I pray [for] nothing but protection, love and peace to her daughter through this very confusing holiday time. Only 23. We lost a very beautiful young mom with the world ahead of her. Surround yourself with other who will truly care and be a great influence be careful.” Within hours, Abraham’s post was liked thousands of times.

An official cause of death for Fairman, 23, has not been revealed. It’s suspected she died from an overdose. The former reality star struggled with drugs. She also got into trouble with the law, being arrested for prostitution in 2015 and resisting arrest and providing a false ID last week.

Fairman’s 7-year-old daughter, Neveah, is staying with the reality star’s mother. The father of her daughter, Matt, has not yet issued a statement on his ex-girlfriend’s death.

MTV, however, issued a response in the wake of Fairman’s death. “We are saddened by the news of Valerie Fairman’s passing,” it read Thursday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.”

Fairman died Wednesday at a friend’s house in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. Her friend, who wasn’t named, broke down the door of the bathroom and found Fairman unresponsive. Her cause of death is being investigated by The Chester County Coroner, E! Online reported Thursday.

Abraham wasn’t the only “16 and Pregnant” alum who responded. Evans and DeBoer also issued tweets Thursday.
