Model and social media phenom, Katie May, has suffered a “catastrophic” stroke, her family has announced.
May, known as MsKatieMay on social media, was hospitalized after suffering the debilitating stroke Monday in Los Angeles where she remains in critical condition.
We’re told she’d recently complained of neck pain and sought treatment. Her family tells us the devastating stroke was caused by a blockage in her carotid artery. There have been rampant rumors on the Internet that Katie died. People have been posting R.I.P. across all her social media sites. She’s only in her mid 30s, so the stroke is especially shocking. Known as the “Queen of Snapchat” … she’s modeled for Playboy and Sports Illustrated. She has almost 2 million followers on Instagram alone. h/t tmz
May is mother to a 7-year-old daughter.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Katie and her family at this difficult time.
