Fans have been left devastated after re-reading Coco Lee's final Instagram post before she sadly passed away.

It comes as it was recently reported that the actress has died aged 48.

Lee found international fame after becoming one of the first Chinese singers to make waves in the United States with her song 'Do You Want My Love' and even managed to secure the number four spot on Billboard's Hot Dance Breakout chart in 1999 to cement herself.

She was later catapulted to a new level of fame after taking on the role of Mulan in the Mandarin version of the iconic Disney movie.

In a statement, Lee's sister Nancy revealed that she had been suffering from depression and had attempted to take her life on Sunday.

The actress was rushed to hospital, slipped into a coma, and unfortunately passed away on Wednesday.

Taking to Instagram, Nancy shared the heartbreaking news with fans: "With great sadness, we are here break the most devastating news: CoCo had been suffering from depression for a few years but her condition deteriorated drastically over the last few months."

She continued: "Despite the best efforts of the hospital team to rescue and treat her from her coma, she finally passed away on 5 July... 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of CoCo’s singing career, in the past 29 years, she’s won countless international acclaims with top selling songs and has left audience w an astounding impression of her excellent live performances."

"As a family of CoCo, we are very grateful and honoured to have such an excellent and outstanding sister. We are thankful to God for giving us such a kind angel," she added before concluding the post with a heartfelt thanks to the medical staff that treated Lee.

"Finally, we would like to thank the medical staff again for their dedication to care throughout the whole process," she wrote in the statement. "At the same time, we hope that everyone will not only miss CoCo, but also share her bright smile, treat people with sincerity, and convey kindness and love to everyone around us, and continue CoCo’s wish to let everyone around feel her love and happiness."

"Although CoCo stays in the world for not long a time, her rays of light will last forever," Nancy added.

In the wake of the tragic news, fans have taken to Lee's own Instagram page to express their sadness under her devastating final post.

The post was a carousel of photographs that were taken throughout 2022 which started off showing a picture of a tattoo that read "love" on the singer's wrist.

While the snapshots - which were posted on New Year's Eve, got progressively happier in nature, her caption stressed what "an incredibly difficult year" it had been for her but she was hopeful going into 2023.

"LOVE & FAITH ~my 2 favorite words that I carry strongly in my heart which I desperately needed to get thru this incredibly difficult year," she wrote. "Life seemed unbearable at times but I adapted the attitude of a “female warrior” to face them head on fearlessly but always had the biggest smile and big fat laughters!"

She later went on to say that despite the challenges she faced, she would always come back stronger, comparing herself to The Great Wall of China.

"I’m a female warrior baby! Just like The Great Wall of China I will never fall," she said. "If I can overcome anything, so can u! You are not alone, no matter how hard life gets, I’m with u."

The post has since become a safe place for fans and friends to pour their hearts out to the star.
