Update: In a heartbreaking update, Kailia Posey’s family has revealed the 16-year-old’s cause of death. According to TMZ, Posey had committed suicide.

Kailia Posey became a household face very early on in her life. As one of the stars of TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras, Posey captured people’s hearts with her adorable personality.

Based on another Facebook post by Marcy, Kailia had just attended Prom 2022 with her friends. What caused Kailia’s untimely passing hasn’t been made public.

According to an Instagram account believed to be Kailia’s, the teen had just celebrated her 16th birthday in April. And her love of pageants hadn’t ceased.

She revealed in February that she had recently competed in the Miss Washington Teen USA pageant and that she was “so excited.”

Very early in her life, Kailia started training to be a contortionist. Just two days ago, she took to Instagram to share an impressive video of herself shooting a bow and arrow with her legs and feet while in a handstand.

Mamas Uncut will continue to update this story as new information becomes public. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Posey family during this extremely difficult time.
