A mass shooting at Michigan State University has impacted Flavor of Love star Deelishis and her family.
Michigan State University Department of Police and Public Safety confirmed on Feb. 14 that junior Arielle Anderson—who, according to Deelishis’ Instagram, is the reality star’s niece—was one of three students who were killed in a mass shooting at Michigan State University.
Hours earlier, Deelishis (real name Chandra Davis) begged her nearly 4 million followers for help in finding Arielle.
“My beautiful niece @ariellediamond_ is a student at MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY,” she wrote Feb. 14. “She was in her classroom in the same building as the active shooter and we have not heard from her. If you know her whereabouts please dm me … in the meantime my family and I ask for your prayers!! #MichiganStateUniversity #ArielleDiamond.”
Soon after posting, she pinned a comment that read, “My sweet beautiful niece…RIP baby girl.”
The reality star, who appeared on Flavor Flav‘s Vh1 reality show in 2006, received many supportive messages from friends and fans including Basketball Wives star Shaunie O’Neal and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield.
