Jackass star Patty Perez, known as “Goddess Patty” has passed away aged 57.
Perez starred in several of the Jackass skits over the years. Perez played herself in an episode called My Big Fat Fetish and a sketched called “Magic Trick”.
She died following health complications due to diabetes last Friday (September 17).
Her family who have set up a GoFundMe page to pay for her funeral expenses, also called Perez a “friend to everyone”.
“made the best out of every situation”
Paying tribute to her mother, Patty Perez’s daughter Priscilla said she was “so full of life”.
Priscilla also wrote on the page, “She made the best out of any situation, loved her kids with every fiber of her being and was there for anyone who needed it. She was a friend to everyone”.
She also added, “We never stopped fighting for her. We had faith that everything was going to work out but it was her time. Our hearts are broken and life will never be the same without her”.
Perez’s death comes just a year after Jackass co-star and wrestler Stevie Lee passed away aged 54.
At the time, his family released the following statement “Steve ‘Puppet The Psycho Dwarf’ Lee Richardson unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at his home in the morning. He was beloved by many and has many friends that were family, fans that adored him, but only his brother Jim left to take care of final arrangements”.
It was revealed back in July, that a fourth film of the Jackass franchise was on the way. The film is now due to be released on 4 February 2022. It is called Jackass Forever.
