Vanity, Prince protegé and lead singer of the ’80s girl group Vanity 6, has died after fighting kidney failure and, most recently, a reported abdominal illness, according to TMZ.

The singer, whose real name was Denise Katrina Matthews, died at a hospital in Fremont, California hospital on Monday, the report says.

She set up an online GoFundMe fundraiser page, saying she been diagnosed with sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis, an inflammation of the small intestines, the report says:

She also battled crack addiction in the ’90s, and after a 1994 OD her kidneys were shot. She had to undergo nearly daily dialysis treatments.

Vanity’s biggest hit came in 1982 with “Nasty Girl” … a song produced by Prince. The group toured with Prince on his 1999 tour, but she quit right after that. She went on to sign a solo record deal with Motown, and starred in movies like “The Last Dragon” and “Action Jackson.” 

Rest in peace, Vanity.
