The cause of Jacky Oh’s death has been declared nearly four months after the Wild ‘N Out star died unexpectedly at 32.
Oh, whose birth name was Jacklyn Smith, died from complications from cosmetic surgery, a representative for the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday. The news was first reported by TMZ.
Oh died May 31 in Miami. At the time, TMZ reported that her longtime partner, the comedian and rapper DC Young Fly, was in Atlanta shooting new episodes of Wild ‘N Out when she died. The couple, who shared children Nova, Nala, and Prince, first met while filming the Nick Cannon-created improv and sketch comedy show in 2015.
