    Playboy model Katie May died Thursday after suffering a stroke at the age of 34.

    On Monday, the blond bombshell was hospitalized for a blockage in her carotid artery, which resulted in a stroke.

    “It is with heavy hearts that we confirm the passing today of Katie May — mother, daughter, sister, friend, businesswoman, model and social media star — after suffering a catastrophic stroke caused by a blocked artery on Monday,” May’s family said in a statement. “Known as ‘MsKatieMay’ on the Internet and the ‘Queen of Snapchat,’ she leaves behind millions of fans and followers, and a heartbroken family. We respectfully ask for privacy in this difficult time.”

    The family set up a GoFundMe page in the hopes of raising $100,000 to support May’s only child, 7-year-old Mia. Over $10,000 has been donated.

    “Anyone who was lucky enough to know Katie May was truly blessed by her incredible heart, mind and soul,” the page noted. “Mia was Katie’s whole life, so please help Katie, Mia and us by donating money to Mia.”

    May’s last social snap was posted on Monday, in which she shared a photo of herself on the beach with her 1.9 million Instagram followers.
