Los Angeles (CNN) — Simone Battle, an “X Factor” finalist and G.R.L. singer, was found dead Friday in a Los Angeles home, a coroner’s spokesman said. She was 25.
A cause of death is not yet known, according to Los Angeles County Coroner Lt. David Smith. An autopsy has been scheduled for the weekend, he said.
Battle’s body was discovered in her West Hollywood apartment Friday morning, Smith said. No other details have been made public.
The singer was a finalist in the talent competition for Fox Television’s “The X Factor” in the 2011 season.
She was a member of the girl singing group G.R.L., which performed last month on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The G.R.L. Twitter account posted this message: “Words cannot express the depth of our loss. Simone’s incredible talent was only surpassed by the size of her heart.”
