Singer-songwriter Billie Eilish paid tribute following the death of her fan Skylar Davies.

The pop star shared photos of herself with Skylar Davies using Instagram Stories. She also posted a touching tribute to Skylar along with condolences to her family.

“rest easy beautiful girl. / love you / angel / sending every ounce of  love i have to skylars family and friends. my heart is shattered.”

Shortly after Eilish posted the tribute to Skylar, she took to her Instagram Stories once again to post photos and a touching tribute to yet another fan, Kira:

“i don’t understand why is this all happening / i hate this / I don’t know how im only finding out now / you’re not here anymore / i love you so much kira / please fly high / rest in peace / i want to scream / i want to scream / i want to scream”

Meanwhile, a “Skylar’s Family Memorial Grief Fund” has been set up on GoFundMe by Rob Davies from Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.

“This fund is to help with the cost of Skylar’s funeral expenses and to give the family time away from the demands of work to grieve,” Rob wrote.

Who are Eilish fans, Skylar Davies and Kira?

We don’t know much about Skylar Davies, but she had met Eilish, and the singer was clearly devastated about her death.

Eilish posted photos showing her and Skylar hugging. She also posted photos showing her and Kira hugging. Another photo showed Kira kissing Eilish on the cheek.

Some Twitter users have offered answers to inquires about Skylar and Kira. While some fans claimed on Twitter that Skylar died in a car accident, that contradicts Rob Davies’ statement on the GoFundMe page.

Davies, who set up the GoFundMe page for Skylar’s family, said she died suddenly on December 26 without warning.

“Skylar collapsed, her heart stopped beating and she never regained consciousness,” he wrote.

Kira died due to a rare form of brain cancer.

Kira was the niece of Jim Beaver, the actor who portrayed Bobby Singer on The CW series Supernatural. While battling cancer, Kira was able to meet her favorite singer, Billie Eilish in November 2018 and the two “connected instantly.”

Big weekend for Kira. Saturday, we attended the Unravel the Night event where Kira was honored and people came together…
