Following a weekend suicide attempt, her sisters said she had been in a coma ever since.
Carol and Nancy, Lee’s older sisters, stated on Facebook that Lee had been dealing with depression for a while.
She attempted suicide at home on Sunday and was taken to the hospital, where she passed away on Wednesday, according to what they wrote.
Lee’s sisters also wrote: “In the past 29 years, she not only made us happy with her songs and dances, but she also worked hard to pave the way for Chinese singers in the international music scene and has been doing her hardest to shine for the Chinese.
