Rap impresario Clifford T.I. Harris‘ older sister, Precious Harris, who was injured during a horrific car crash a little over a week ago, has died. She was 66.

Harris had been placed on life support almost immediately after arriving at a local hospital in Atlanta last week. She never regained consciousness or showed signs of improvement before she died Friday, Feb. 22, 2019, TMZ reported.

Precious Harris was a frequent guest on the entertainment family’s popular reality shows and one of the most popular personalities. Harris’ daughter, Kamaya Harris, shared a tribute to her mom on Instagram, whom she called her “best friend on earth.”

Here is the message in its entirety:

Tip and Tiny Harris are devastated. The couple immediately shut down production of their latest reality show, “T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle,” after they received the shocking news that the Grand Hustle boss’s sister was critically injured in an accident, Page Six had reported previously.

There is no indication as to when production will begin again.

From multiple media reports, it has been learned that Harris’ car struck a pole, which triggered an asthma attack. What triggered the accident has never been made clear to the media.

What the media and pop culture do know for sure is that T.I. was very close to his older sister, as was his wife. Tip posted his feelings on Instagram this past week, saying: “We Love You Dearly Baby Girl….”

For Harris’ 66th birthday bash last May, according to TMZ, Tiny Harris had this to say to her beloved sister-in-law:

“I hope you know how much u mean to me. Always been my road dawg. Love u much! Hope you enjoyed your day!!”

T.I.’s wife had posted a photo with her sister-in-law on Instagram last week, asking for prayers.
