    Ellie Goulding has dubbed Juice Wrld as a “sweet soul” following his passing

    The 21-year-old rapper died on Sunday (08.12.19) after he reportedly suffered a seizure in Chicago’s Midway airport, and Ellie - who worked with Juice on their track ‘Hate Me’, which was released in June this year - has taken to social media to lead tributes to the star


    She wrote on Twitter: “I can’t believe it... you were such a sweet soul. I’ll always remember meeting you and your family on the video set and thinking how close you were. You had so much further to go, you were just getting started. You’ll be missed Juice (sic)”

    In a separate tweet, the 32-year-old singer shared a picture of herself and Juice - whose real name is Jarad Anthony Higgins - with the caption “X”, and a third tweet simply featured a sad looking emoji.

    DJ and producer Zedd also paid tribute to Juice on Twitter, as he reminded his followers to “be kind to one another”.

    He wrote: “really shocked and sad to find out juice wrld passed away, ... and so young too...

    “a reminder that life can be over any moment...

    “be kind to one another. (sic)”

    And Lil Yachty - who worked on a remix of Juice’s song 'All Girls Are the Same’ - expressed his sadness, as he wrote: “Wow, I can not believe this. Rip my brother juice world

    “No man no!!!!!!!!!! (sic)”

    Juice landed in Chicago on Sunday morning following a flight from California, and witnesses told TMZ he suffered the seizure whilst walking through the airport.

    Law enforcement sources have reported he was bleeding from the mouth when the paramedics arrived on the scene, and although he was still alive when he was rushed to the hospital, he was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.

    As of the time of writing, the exact cause of death and the cause of the reported seizure as not yet known.
