“It was a wild ride from then on. I’ve put her in a million videos and spent just as much time hanging out.

“She was always genuine and cool. Never brought drama to set of life.

“You never know when the last time you speak to some one will be the last time you speak.”

He added: “I hold on to my memories of you with love. Rest in Power Pasha.”

And she appeared in many other music videos including Pimp by 50 Cent and Gimme The Light by Sean Paul.

She was said to have a net worth of $1million after two decades in showbusiness.

Actor Terrence Howard and rapper Pusha T both replied simply with prayer emojis.

On Twitter, one friend said: “Gonna miss your kind heart, forever remember your gentle approach to life.”

A fan wrote: “Pasha Bleasdell is a legend.

“The jean vest with no shirt/bra… the Kangol with the wash and set… my God we stole all her styles from the music videos.

“She was IT. R.I.P. to an icon”
