Rupaul's Official Statement on the Death of Sahara Davenport
By Out.com Editors
We reported the tragic news of the death of Sahara Davenport earlier today—the contestant from Season 2 of Rupaul's Drag Race was 27 years old and the boyfriend of Season 3 contestant Manila Luzon.
Since then, Rupaul has released a formal statement, originally posted in text and on Twitter, and then released in conjunction with a photo on Facebook.
The statement, shown below, closes any question of this being a rumor:
Shocked & heartbroken over @saharadavenport. Never occurred to me that we'd ever lose one of my girls. I see them as immortal
