Cherie Gil Cause of Death
Cherie Gil passed away from cancer on August 5 at 5 AM in Manhattan, New York City’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She had stayed at the cancer center and was grateful for the care she received there last month.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Gil relocated to New York. In an interview with Mega Magazine this year, she stated:
“I just had to make sure that first and foremost, my mental, emotional, spiritual states were getting the priority. I was getting tired of myself and I was just so angry and unhappy so I sold everything and packed up and if you’re wondering if the villain is scared over the new role in life she’s facing? Yes.”
Cherie’s bald photograph was published in the magazine, and she stated that she had gotten rid of the outfits that had connections to her past.
