It’s unfortunate there’s so many rumors going around the internet these days that many people don’t know whether to believe their favorite celebrity is dead or alive. While not a major household name, DJ Peachez (born Terika Grooms) is a popular Richmond, Virginia radio disc jokey. According to several blog posts and a close collaborator of DJ Peachez, she has passed away after spending several days in the hospital with Meningitis.

Peachez grew up in Amherst, Virginia and quickly rose in popularity with her mix of 80’s reggae and hip-hop music. She’s collaborated with the likes of rap’s Gucci Mane and R&B singer Bobby Valentino. According to DJ Peachez Twitter page:

“# Bio My name is Peachez and I’m the Best! Mixshow DJ, WCDX iPower 92.1, Mixshow/On-Air Personality, 99.5 WUSR PA, Syndicated worldwide, Core DJ, The Hottest in Heels”

DJ Peachez last posted to her Twitter profile on the 21st and was excited about an upcoming music video show as well as her latest mixshow. It’s an unfortunate, untimely death and DJ Peachez will be greatly missed by all her fans, family and friends.

Nicki Minaj who is a close friend and collaborator with DJ Peachez posted the following on Twitter several hours ago:
