The creator behind the popular YouTube channel Here For The Tea, which did exposés in the fashion and makeup influencing industry, is reportedly dead. The death of Samantha Rabinowitz, as she is named, comes following days of her absence from social media, which she told fans was because she recently “received some devastating news.”

Though she had massive reach on social media platforms, Rabinowitz preferred privacy and most fans were unaware of how she looked or who she was. She was referred to only as Sam in her community, which was touching 400,000 on YouTube, was over 130,000 on Instagram and 150,000 on Twitter.

Confirmation of Rabinowitz’s demise appeared to have been given by a woman named Lisa Greenspoon, who commented under the last post on the Here For The Tea Instagram page, “It is with a heavy heart and the most extreme sadness that I am sharing this news…my baby sister Sam @hereforthetea2 has passed away. She passed peacefully in her sleep yesterday.”

Reasons for her death aren’t yet clear.

The YouTube account for Here For The Tea became active in 2016 and credits itself for “bringing you today’s popular YouTube guru/celebrity tea.” The description mentioned the “content of these videos should not be taken as FACT, but more of a guideline to allow you to come to your own conclusions.”
