Niece Waidhofer, Model and Influencer, Dead at 31

Model and influencer Niece Waidhofer, who had more than 4 million Instagram followers, has passed away. She was 31.

Waidhofer’s family reportedly reported that she committed suicide in Houston, Texas, according to TMZ, which broke the news first. Sadly, Niece took her own life following a protracted fight with mental health concerns, the family said in a statement provided to TMZ.

The statement said, “She was very candid with her fans about her troubles, even wishing to help those who also suffered.”

Following the devastating news, TMZ says that a non-profit organization called “Peace from Niece” would be founded in Waidhofer’s honor. This organization will promote mental health awareness and offer grants for the study of mental illnesses.

According to law enforcement authorities, the police were called by a worried relative last month and requested to check on the niece at her Houston residence. Police allegedly carried out the welfare check, and that’s when they found her body, according to TMZ.

Fans appear to have sensed something was wrong when Waidhofer deleted her account and left only three posts, dated 2015, 2017, and March 25. Waidhofer had accumulated 4.2 million followers on Instagram alone.


According to TMZ, Waidhofer almost completely deleted her account in the weeks preceding her passing, proving the fan suspicions to be accurate.

“Niece transcended her difficulties. She was gorgeous and lovely, sensitive and hilarious, bright and creative, compassionate and giving, intelligent and challenging “The family’s statement was continued. While saying goodbye is extremely sad, we find solace in the knowledge that she has been united with her father, her three grandparents, her uncle Rusty, and her beloved Puff. We also find solace in the knowledge that she is now free to be herself and is, at long last, at peace.
