According to her mother, the 23-year-old was at a friend's house in Coatesville, Pennsylvania when she overdosed.

The death of 23-year-old Valerie Fairman is still under investigation, CBS Philly reported.

She has battled some legal troubles in the years since TV fame including a 2015 prostitution arrest in DE and an arrest just last week on driving with a suspended license, resisting arrest and providing false identification charges, according to court records.

She also reportedly had problems with substance abuse and legal issues, including a 2015 prostitution arrest.

Fairman's mother, Janice, told E! that she now has custody of her 7-year-old daughter Naveah.

Valerie Fairman, a former star of MTV's "16 and Pregnant", died on Wednesday, the Chester County Coroner's office confirmed to the Huffington Post.

"We are saddened by the news of Valerie Fairman's passing". She was ordered to inpatient drug or alcohol treatment earlier this year after a parole violation, court records show.

Just a week before her death, Valerie Fairman ran into some more trouble with the law. "She's surrounded by support and friends". Valerie was released on bail and was set to go before a judge for her preliminary hearing on January 5. "My heart goes out to her daughter and family". Always wanted to be near me.

David Pryce, Valerie's ex-boyfriend, mourned her death on Facebook, hinting that it was probably drug-related. "People who must do this have to be very careful".
