Freeman’s official twitter account posted more details about what happened. Freeman was apparently suffering from an extreme case of pneumonia when a blood clot traveled to her heart. Her husband performed CPR at their California home until an ambulance arrived, but Freeman died at the hospital. She had beaten cervical cancer and was also battling lupus.

Jennifer Hudson was also a judge on season 13 and expressed her condolences on Instagram.
