I’m truly saddened to report that Mia Amber Davis, Plus Size Model, Actress, TV Producer and Creative Editor-at-Large for Plus Model Magazine has passed. No statement has yet to be released as to when, where, and why but there has been an out pour of emotions for this loss across the internet today. If you do not know Mia Amber’s name, I’m sure you know her face from the numerous ads from Ashley Stewart, being the face of Jill Scott’s Butterfly Bra, many TV appearances or from the movie Road Trip. Mia was a pioneer for African-American Plus Size Models and will never be forgotten by the Curvy Community. From the entire staff at Curvy Magazine, we send our sincerest condolences to the Davis Family. Another angel has gotten their wings. Fans are encouraged to visit her official fan page.
Update, Wednesday May 11, 2:20pm:TMZ spoke with Mia Amber’s husband Michael Yard, who says that his wife had knee surgery the previous day, and though she had come home fine, was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday.
TMZ spoke with Mia’s husband — Michael Yard — who told us the actress went under the knife Monday to correct an ongoing issue with her knee stemming from an old college basketball injury.
Yard — who was in NY at the time — tells us he spoke with Mia Tuesday morning and she sounded normal and in good spirits.
However, hours later — Mike says he got a phone call from Mia’s cousin informing him that she was taking Mia to the hospital because Mia had been suffering from a bout of dizziness. Soon after, Mike says the unthinkable happened — he got another phone call informing him his wife had passed away.
