ST. LOUIS – A music video model who caught the eye of Nelly in the rapper’s famed “Hot in Herre” video passed away last Saturday.
Pasha Bleasdell died June 4 of a brain tumor, according to filmmaker Director X. She was 38. Director X shared the sad news on his Instagram feed.
“If you made videos in 2000’s or were around to watch them you know Pasha,” he wrote.
Director X said he met Bleasdell in 1999 on the set of the Donnell Jones “Where I Wanna Be” video shoot.
“I’ve put her in a million videos and spent just as much time hanging out,” Director X said. “She was always genuine and cool. Never brought drama to set of life.”
Several stars from the world of hip-hop and R&B, and actors and models, responded to Director X’s post to offer condolences, including Busta Rhymes, Pusha-T, Terrence J, and Vida Guerra.
