Huntsville Star Keke Jabbar Found Dead in Garage by Husband: Friend

Reality star Keke Jabbar’s close pal has shared details behind the “Love & Marriage: Huntsville” star’s death at age 42.

YouTuber JoAnn Jenkins, who boasted of a friendship with Jabbar, shut down speculation over her pal’s cause of death.

“Keke did not overdose, Keke did not take her own life. Keke loved life. Keke was not ready to leave life. She wasn’t ready to leave her children, her husband, or her family,” Jenkins said during a YouTube livestream.

The vlogger claimed that the late reality star would often get sleepy and “go to sleep wherever.” She said Jabbar decided to get some shut-eye after experiencing an issue with her car.

“So, seven-something this morning, her husband goes to the garage,” Jenkins said during her so-called “official statement.”

“He sees Keke, what he thinks is asleep in the car. He tries to get her attention. He opens [the car] up. She isn’t breathing,” she continued.

“Her husband, her life partner, her best friend tried to bring his wife back, the mother of his children, and he couldn’t. Keke passed from carbon monoxide poisoning. That’s it. That is all,” Jenkins added.

The reality star’s death was announced by blogger Marcella Speaks, who read out a statement from Jabbar’s family Tuesday.

“It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Keke. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by love,” she said on behalf of the late star’s loved ones during a YouTube livestream.

“She was a mom, a sister, and a great friend full of life, love, and laughter. She will be sorely missed and at this time, we are asking for respect and privacy in our moment of grief while we process this great loss. The Jabbar Family and the Scott Family.”

Marcella stated that Jabbar died “peacefully at home surrounded in love.”

Following the heartbreaking announcement, Jabbar’s cousin and co-star, LaTisha Scott, asked for privacy as she navigated the news.

“At this time we are asking for RESPECT and PRIVACY in our moment of grief, while we process this great loss! This is hard for our family!!!!!” Scott wrote on Instagram Tuesday.

“Love & Marriage: Huntsville” follows the lives of three couples in Huntsville, Ala., who invest in real estate.

The OWN show has proved to be a massive success with a total of 8 seasons under its belt.
