TikTok star and Amazon Prime’s Club Rat series creator Eva Evans has died at the age of 29, her sister has confirmed.

Eva Evans had amassed over 300,000 followers on TikTok, where she often posted humorous videos depicting her life as a woman in her twenties living in New York City.

The social media star also had her own series, Club Rat, on Amazon Prime Video, of which there were five episodes. She created, directed, produced, and starred in the 2023 dark comedy show.

On April 21, Evan’s sister, Lila, took to Instagram to share the news of her death. “Yesterday my family received news that our sweet, fabulous, creative, caring, hilarious Eva, my beautiful sister, has died,” she wrote in the caption of her post.

“After 24 hours, I still find myself in a constant cycle of denial and acceptance, so I know how unbelievable and hard to process this news will be. We will be holding a celebration of Eva this coming Tuesday, 4/23, in the evening in lower Manhattan.

“I wish I had Eva here now to refer to because she would have better words and know how to say what I don’t. I am keeping this brief, so we can plan for the next few days, but you’ll be hearing a lot more from me on how much Eva means to me and just how different the world will be without her,” Lila concluded.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Evan’s cause of death was suicide, as reported by the outlet on April 23. According to reports, the influencer was found hanging in her apartment by a friend on Saturday night. Paramedics pronounced the TikToker dead at the scene.

Many fans have since paid their tributes in the comment section. “You will be so missed. We all wanted-needed more of you and your time. My heart breaks for everyone around you, especially your family,” one person wrote.

“Such a bright light in NYC community. So sad and so sorry for your loss,” another commented. “I really really loved her. She was SUCH an inspiration and light,” a third added.

Evan’s death follows the death of another TikTok star, Kyle Marisa Roth, who died earlier this month after a battle with a rare form of cancer.
