Jordan Cashmere who starred in 16 and Pregnant star has died at the age of 26, an examiner confirmed.

Although the medical examiner confirmed the death of the late reality star, a cause or manner of death has yet to be announced, TMZ reports.

The teen mum, her then boyfriend Derek Taylor and daughter Evie starred on the show back in 2014 after they found themselves homeless following the birth of their beautiful daughter.

On the show, Jordan's family did not approve of her relationship with Derek and as she was about to give birth, her family disowned her.

But their struggles didn't end when the cameras stopped rolling as the new parents called time on their relationship.

Following their breakup, the pair weren't able to properly care for their daughter on their own but Jordan's dad and stepmom happily stepped in and shared guardianship with them for a time.

In 2015, the teen signed away her custody rights to Derek's mom back in 2015 on a temporary basis as she worked to improve herself.

Over the years, the reality star struggled with her mental health issues, including battling addiction and even suffered from suicidal thoughts.

By 2017, Jordan was working at a strip club and later found herself arrested for drug possession.
