    G.R.L. singer Simone Battle, who appeared on the first season of X Factor, has died. She was just 25. So tragic.

    TMZ reports that Battle was found hanging from a rod in her bedroom closet at her West Hollywood residence on Friday morning, September 5.

    It appears to have been a suicide.

    A statement from her label and colleagues —Reign Deer Entertainment, Robin Antin, Kemosabe Records and RCA Records— was issued and read as follows: "We are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the loss of Simone Battle of G.R.L. Simone was an exceptional young talent and human being, and we are all devastated to learn of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this time."

    How sad.

    R.I.P., Simone.

    Her four surviving bandmates offered a short but heartfelt tweet.
