Stardom announced that Hana Kimura has passed away at only 22 years of age, believed to be of an apparent suicide.
Kimura, one of the top stars in Stardom, had been the target of a lot of cyber bullying as of late when an incident on the reality show Terrace House filmed in early January and aired in March showing her lose her temper and slap a male housemate for ruining her wrestling outfit.
The man washed and dried his clothes without removing Kimura's, causing it to shrink.
When she confronted him about it, he wasn't remorseful and she lost it and slapped him hard.
It was reported that she fell into depression due to the massive online bullying that resulted and she recently posted not only disturbing videos and messages online implying suicide, but she also tweeted images (since deleted) showing her harm herself by cutting her arms.
We are very sorry to report that our Hana Kimura has passed away.
Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends.
We appreciate your support during this difficult time.

Featured below is the message she had posted, which has essentially been taken as a suicide note from the late pro wrestling star.
"Nearly 100 opinions every day. I couldn't deny that I was hurt. I'm dead. Thank you for giving me a mother. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love it. I'm weak. I'm sorry. I don't want to be alive anymore. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you everyone. I love you. Bye."
