“Mrs. Bieber” Avalanna Routh was remembered on Twitter Friday.
Routh, a 6-year-old girl who died in 2012, was beloved by Justin Bieber and his fans before her passing. She died of cancer.
“One of her greatest adventures was meeting Justin Bieber. In typical Avalanna fashion, she was completely unfazed by Justin’s fame,” her mother, Eileen Roberts Routh, wrote for the Huffington Post several years ago. “She fell in love with a cute boy who was mesmerized by our girl because she radiated life, love, laughter and so much mischief. She was the light of our lives and still shines so bright.”
She added: “Avalanna, through her unique relationship with Justin Bieber, created a global awareness for AT/RT [the rare form of cancer she suffered from].”
On Twitter, Bieber fans tweeted about the girl.
She met Bieber two years ago on Feb. 14, 2012, “and a beautiful love story began,” reads a message Bieber retweeted Friday.
