JACKASS star "Goddess Patty" has died aged 57 after a long battle with diabetes.
Patty Perez passed away on Friday at a hospital in Reno, Nevada, where she was being treated for complications related to her type 1 diabetes.
The actress's daughter, Priscilla, told TMZ that her mother had been dealing with complications since birth.
She confirmed that her mom's death was not coronavirus-related.
Recently her kidneys began to fail as a result of the lifelong struggle she had with her health and weight.
"We want to express our immense gratitude for the love and kindness everyone has shown to our mom," Priscilla told TMZ.
"Being able to entertain and bring light and happiness to people was the highlight of her life.
"She was so proud of the work she did in the film industry."
But despite her health issues, Patty lived life to the fullest starring in not one but two Jackass movies.
She rose to fame after featuring in the blockbuster movie Jackass 2 in 2006 and Jackass 2.5 the following year.
In the movie, "Goddess Patty" would make one of the main stuntmen – Wee Man, performed by Jason Acuña – disappear.
She did this by jumping onto him while he lay down on a bed.
Patty went on to star in one episode of the show "My Big Fat Fetish" where she talked about being paid by men to sit on them for pleasure.
Her family has set up a GoFundMe page where they are raising $6,000 to cover the funeral and other expenses.
