  • Drag Race Star Chi Chi Devayne Passes Away

    RuPaul’s Drag Race star Chi Chi Devayne dies aged 34

    Chi Chi DeVayne has died after a battle with pneumonia

    A source confirmed the tragic news to Entertainment Weekly.

    The drag queen had been in and out of hospital recently following suspected kidney failure.

    She underwent a biopsy and dialysis, a procedure to remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood.

    Days after the procedure she was discharged from hospital and posted a video on social media, telling fans she was ‘about to go home’.

    However fears for her health returned when she shared an Instagram update revealing she was back in hospital.

    From her hospital bed Chi Chi said on her Instagram Story: ‘Hey guys, I’m back in. Keep me in your prayers, I’ll be back soon.’

    It followed the news that the Drag Race star had been diagnosed with pneumonia, an infection in one or both lungs.

    In 2018, the TV star was diagnosed with scleroderma, an uncommon condition that results in hard, thickened areas of skin and sometimes problems with internal organs and blood vessels.

    Chi Chi, real name Zavion Davenport, found fame on the eighth season of Drag Race and the third season of Drag Race All Stars.

    Fans had rallied round Chi Chi since her health announcement, with many sending her money via Venmo and PayPaul to help pay her medical bills.
