"My heart is shattered."
Billie Eilish has mourned the deaths of two of her fans that have sadly passed away. The singer shared a heartfelt tribute to Skylar Davies and Kira on Instagram, and said that her "heart is shattered".
Billie first posted a series of images of herself embracing Skylar on her Instagram Story. She captioned them: "Rest easy beautiful girl. Love you. Angel. Sending every ounce of love I have to Skylar's family and friends. My heart is shattered. Fuck."
Bille then received the devastating news that another fan named Kira had died. Billie shared more images of herself cuddled up to Kira, wearing co-ordinating brightly coloured beanies. "I don't understand why all this is happening," she wrote. "I hate this. I don't know how I am just finding out. You are not here anymore. I love you so much Kira. Please fly high. Rest in peace. I want to scream."
Both causes of death have not been made public, but soon Billie's fans joined her in sending their condolences.

Billie has an incredibly close relationship with her fans, believing they're all her friends. In an interview with Access Hollywood in 2018, she said: "The only reason you're there is because of them [fans] and it's the same with my friends and family, and the people I actually care about. I sort of just try and keep up with them as much as possible.
"At my shows I just try to, like, just talk to people and ask how their day was. I care about that part of them."
