TikTok star and former Hooters girl Ali Spice has died at the age of just 21.

She lost her life in a car crash in Florida on December 12, it has been confirmed.

The news was revealed on Instagram by one of her closest friends, Ariane Avandi.

She wrote: “Heartbroken doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel right now.

“Ali you are one of the most vibrant, beautiful inside & out, genuine, loving souls I’ve had the privilege of knowing.

“You are an amazing friend and incredibly talented and passionate woman.

“I will never forget the impact you made on my life and everyone’s for just being YOU!!”

The news was shared alongside a selection of pictures of the late social media star, who had hundreds of thousands of followers at the time of her death.

Laine Farrell, another friend, paid tribute to the 21-year-old, writing: “Can’t believe this honestly. We shared the same Hooter birthday, both Scorpios who are obsessed with hello kitty, pink, and cats. You JUST turned 21. Life is crazy.”

Fans were quick to pay tribute to the social media star too.

One wrote: “Ali babe. You didn’t deserve this. I hope you’re flying high in hello kitty heaven. You had one a huge impact on my life. Love you so much. I’ll see you later.”

“Ali Spice passed away last night and I’m just so sad,” a second added. “She was one of my favourite TikTok gals and she was only 21.”

“Ali Spice died and my heart is heavy, her career was just starting,” a third commented.

“Rest in the most beautiful peace baby, will forever hold a place in all of our hearts,” remarked a fourth.

Ali Spice, whose real name was Ali Dulin, rose to fame online for sharing insights into her life as a Hooters girl.

Her popular videos included lip-syncing videos and dancing, and she was also a regular streamer on Twitch.

The Sun reports that Florida police have not yet disclosed information about the accident or revealed whether or not there have been any additional casualties.

Ali’s last Instagram post was made on 4 December and featured the 21-year-old posing in red shorts, a fishnet top and earmuffs.

Her TikTok account has been removed, but a reason has not yet been given for this.

And her YouTube channel remains up, with her last post from just 10 days ago, when she celebrated her 21st birthday in a vlog.
