Keke Jabbar of 'Love & Marriage: Huntsville' dead at 42

 July 4, 2024

Fans of "Love & Marriage: Huntsville," a popular show that airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) were stunned to learn of the passing of one of its popular stars.

At only 42 years old, show star Keke Jabbar died, according to LaTisha Moore Scott, a cast member on the show and a cousin to the deceased.

The two famously fought on the show, and many of their most tense moments went viral among fans of the shows.

The show "follows three high-powered African-American couples who are longtime friends come together to revitalize the thriving city of Huntsville, Alabama, through their joint real estate venture, The Comeback Group."

What happened?

So far, a cause of death hasn't been revealed, but many believe that due to her young age that something isn't adding up.

Though it's not clear if it's connected, Deadline pointed out earlier this year that Jabbar faced accusations that she was addicted to hard drugs.

"I’ve never taken any kind of hard drug,” Jabbar said on a reunion version of the show after being confronted by the show’s producer Carlos King. "I’ve never taken anything, heroin, cocaine, crack… I’ve never taken anything like that."

She also confirmed that she stayed clean during filming of the show after she was again confronted by the show's producer.

Deadlined noted:

Jabbar and Scott infamously feuded throughout their lifetime together on the reality TV series. Their strained relationship was chronicled by cameras with tense moments among them.

In a scene from a recent season, Jabbar and Scott starred in a confrontation that ended with Jabbar throwing a drink at Scott’s face.

Fans react

Several of the show's fans reacted to the Deadline article in the comment section, with more than one saying they were huge fans of Jabbar and were saddened to learn of her passing.

"Keke was the best looking and most interesting in the group! I am heartbroken! I liked her better than Mel and Tisha! It’s just not right that she’s no longer with us," one fan wrote.

Another fan added, "Today/tomorrow is not promised to anyone, that’s why we must forget about the small stuff and love each other today. May Almighty God bless the family and friends of Keke."

Clearly, her memory and legacy will live on.
