“Pasha Bleasdell passed away from a brain tumour [on] June 4 2022 11:59pm.
“If you made videos in 2000s or were around to watch them you know Pasha. We met her doing background work on the set of Donnell Jone’s ‘Where I Want To Be’ from there we put her in the mix.
“It was a wild ride from then on. I’ve put her in a million videos and spent just as much time hanging out. She was always genuine and cool. Never brought drama to set of life.
“You never know when the last time you speak to someone will be the last time you speak. I hold on to my memories of you with love.
“Rest in Power Pasha January 24 1984 – June 4 2022.”
