American singer Toni Braxton’s niece dies

Toni Braxton’s 24-year-old niece has died from a heart condition. 

The singer’s niece Lauren, who is known as Lolo to friends and family, was found unresponsive in her Maryland home at around noon on Monday. 

Her father is Toni’s brother Michael Conrad Braxton Jr. 

He told that his daughter died as a result of a heart condition but it is not yet clear what that condition is. 

Toni, 51, is traveling for work and spent the weekend performing in Trinidad and Tobago.

She has not yet commented on her death. 

It is unclear if she was alone in her home or if she lives with her father. Paramedics were called to the property at midday and pronounced her dead on the scene. 

Her father is a singer and songwriter, like her famous aunts.

He also appears in the family’s reality TV show, Braxton Family Values.
