Former Miss South Africa and Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi’s heart is heavy as she mourns the loss of a close friend and fellow beauty queen, former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst.
The pageant world is not easy but it does come with a lot of perks, like making lifelong friends. Zozi and Cheslie were great pals and her passing has hit hard. Taking to her Instagram page, Zozi shared some memories of her and Cheslie, accompanied by a heart-wrenching caption in which she paid her respects.
Zozi expressed her disbelief in her sudden passing, admitting that she is still trying to make sense of all of it.
“I didn't sleep a wink, caught in-between not believing the news and trying to make sense of what is happening. You were supposed to send me photos of the outfit you were going to wear to a wedding this past Saturday and all the details that happened at the event. You took me by surprise, Queen. I am not ready for a world you don't exist in.”

What happened to the stunning former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst

“May this day bring you rest and peace.”
According to News 24, Cheslie was pronounced dead at the scene, with many still wondering what pushed the amazing woman to take her own life. Apparently, Cheslie left a note was in her apartment explaining her decision and her wishes, confirming the cause of death and ruling out anything else, at least for now.
