To think of Gabourey dying at only 32 years of age would be shocking, indeed, with Sidibe winning hearts as the abused young woman in the 2009 movie , starring as Mo’Nique’s much put-upon daughter.

Gabourey starred in ‘Yelling to the Sky’, Tower Heist’, and also appeared in ‘American Dad! She grabbed roles in music videos and other renowned shows.
