According to TMZ, Freeman was in her Pasadena, Calif. home when she complained to her husband Dion that she couldn't breathe. Her husband called 911 and performed CPR while waiting for paramedics. She had been having a series of very serious medical issues recently, including fighting through lupus, cervical cancer, and meningitis.

Miley Cyrus honored the life of "The Voice" star Janice Freeman after she passed away on March 2 due to a tragic blood clot.

The late singer starred in season 13 of the USA series and made it to the top 11 while on Team Miley. Freeman married in 2015, and when she auditioned for The Voice in 2017 with a rock "n" soul remake of Imagine Dragons" "Radioactive', she told the coaches, "I fought my whole life for this moment". She was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 5:30 p.m. "You got somebody that got your back".


Cyrus, 26, shared a sweet tribute to Freeman on her Instagram Sunday with a picture of a rainbow poking out above the trees.

In January of 2018, Freeman explained on her Instagram story how Cyrus had covered six months' worth of rent for her.

That night, a stunned Cyrus told her through tears, "I truly believe that if anybody deserves to stick around in this competition, it is you".
