The fundraiser reads:
We are writing this letter to let you know that our loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin, and friend Natalie Adepoju suddenly passed away on May 13, 2020, in Las Vegas, NV.
The statement continues, "Currently, it is our wish to not disclose the cause. We ask that you respect the family's wishes. However, due to the sudden passing and the need to bring Natalie home, we are asking if you can help with any monetary donation. Natalie had so much life to live we are saddened that her life was cut short."
Boyce had honored his "queen" on Mother's Day. Meanwhile, Adepoju shared a son, Egypt, 4, from her previous relationship while the Twilight star is leaving behind a 10-year-old daughter named Alaya.
Boyce got his first break in the 2008 film Twilight, when his character almost ran over Bella (Kristen Stewart), which acted as a trigger for Edward (Robert Pattinson) to expose himself as a vampire thus saving her life.
Though he had few roles to his name, Gregory made his feelings clear to come back to Hollywood in a 2017 Instagram post after being emotional as audiences remembered him from his movie debut.
