Il 28 settembre, il rapper degli anni ’90 Coolio è morto all’età di 59 anni, ha riferito TMZ. Secondo uno degli amici intimi di Coolio, il rapper, il cui vero nome è Artis Leon Ivey Jr., era a casa di un amico quando è andato a usare il bagno e non è uscito. Col passare del tempo, il suo amico si preoccupò e cercò di chiamarlo senza successo. L’amico è entrato nel bagno sfondando la porta, trovando Coolio sdraiato sul pavimento. Il personale di emergenza è arrivato sul posto e ha trascorso 45 minuti nel tentativo di rianimarlo, ma Coolio è stato dichiarato morto sul posto. Si sospetta che abbia subito un arresto cardiaco.

In a follow-up report, TMZ learned that Coolio had suffered from severe asthma and it sounds like that may have contributed to his death, which is still under investigation. Since then, Coolio's longtime girlfriend Mimi Ivey has spoken out about their relationship.

Coolio & his girlfriend filled out paperwork to get married

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Coolio's girlfriend Mimi Ivey provided an inside look into the relationship she had with the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper. Coolio and his girlfriend had been together since 2012 and were "best friends." 

"We would talk about everything and joke and laugh about everything. There was never a dull moment being with him," Ivey told the Daily Mail. "He was an eccentric, a storyteller. He loved life. He loved his family, his career, and he loved to make people smile," she continued. Although the two referred to each other as "husband" and "wife," they weren't legally married. "'We went to the courthouse, we filled out all of the paperwork and we were planning on it. But we just decided not to turn it in. It's just a piece of paper that doesn't change how either one of us felt about each other," she shared. In addition, she said that Coolio didn't keep any secrets from her and that "if he was seeing other women, [she] knew about it."

Shortly after Coolio's death was confirmed, Ivey shared a touching tribute to him on her Instagram account. She recalled the last conversation the two shared and said that if she knew that was going to be the last time they spoke, she wouldn't have gotten off the phone. "I miss you boo and I'm staying strong & I will see you when I get there," she wrote.
