Katy Perry is mourning the loss of one of her die-hard fans this week.
Katie Bell, an 18-year-old from Benton, Louisiana, died on Saturday (March 25) in a car accident. According to KTBS, Bell lost control of her car and collided head-on with another vehicle. Both drivers were killed on the scene.
Several Perry fans started the #RIPKatycatKatie hashtag and the sad story made its way to Perry. The singer then tweeted out a message to honor her late fan as well as changed her own Twitter handle to read #ripkatycatKatie.
“We see you angel and we love and will miss you. KC’s, light a candle for Katie. Rest In Peace,” Perry tweeted early Tuesday morning (March 28).
