Michele Gerrene is the mother of Gerren Taylor.
Ashley Taylor Gerren (July 6, 1990 – April 11, 2021) known professionally as Gerren Taylor, appeared on the BET reality series Baldwin Hills and documentary America the Beautiful in 2007, which took a critical look at the US’s obsession with beauty.
Gerren was born in Los Angeles, California. She started modeling when she was twelve years old after being spotted by a talent scout in Los Angeles Park. She was the youngest model ever signed by the runway division of L.A. Models. Taylor also signed with the Ford Modeling Agency and was booked by the designers Tracy Reese, Tommy Hilfiger, and Betsey Johnson.
The cause of death of the former reality star is not known, but she battled lupus and was on dialysis at the time of her death, according to Essence.
Taylor is survived by her seven-year-old daughter, Miyoko.
Michele’s professionalism is one of a mystery to the public eye. This also puts a light on her net worth which is also a mystery. According to reports, she will acquire her daughter’s funds until Taylor’s daughter is old enough to use the funds. Taylor’s net worth was estimated at around $950,000.
The public is in shock and some are consoling the family through tweets.
Rest In Peace Gerren Taylor 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊 my condolences go out to her family 💐💐💐 #GerrenTaylor
