Rest In Peace Jackie Collins!!!

The woman behind some of the juiciest novels has bid us farewell so would like to say Rest In Peace Jackie Collins.

The beloved best-selling novelist, Jackie Collins has died at 77 after battling stage 4 breast cancer for the past six-and-a-half years. She was one of Hollywood’s most love ladies with all the tea. She chose to keep her illness almost entirely to herself, confiding primarily in her three daughters, Tracy, 54, Tiffany, 48, and Rory, 46.

The Collins family tells PEOPLE in a statement.

“It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of our beautiful, dynamic and one of a kind mother, Jackie Collins, who died of breast cancer today.”

“She lived a wonderfully full life and was adored by her family, friends and the millions of readers who she has been entertaining for over 4 decades. She was a true inspiration, a trail blazer for women in fiction and a creative force. She will live on through her characters but we already miss her beyond words.”

Jackie happily embraced a full life until her very last days, and in one of her last interviews, Mrs Collins told People:

“Looking back, I’m not sorry about anything I did.”

She added:

“I did it my way, as Frank Sinatra would say. I’ve written five books since the diagnosis, I’ve lived my life, I’ve travelled all over the world, I have not turned down book tours and no one has ever known until now when I feel as though I should come out with it.”

Jackie will be missed. Much love to her family, friends and fans.
