  • Resova spoke with German news outlet DE24 News about the tragic events that took place. She said in an interview that her friend appeared exhausted during their recent flight. “She said she had two coffees and that her circulatory system couldn’t take it. But she also hadn’t eaten for two days,” said the influencer.
  • Upon arriving at the luxury island, both women went to bed.“When I woke up shortly after midnight, I noticed that she was no longer breathing,” Resova told the news outlet. 
  • Maria is among a few social media moguls that have tragically passed recently over health complications. Earlier this month, influencer and model Joselyn Cano,  known as the “Mexican Kim Kardashian,” died following a botched medical procedure, according to multiple reports.
Resova honors her friend in a caption, writing, “Your message that we should never forget: It is important that you stand by yourself and say yes, I need help.” Resova continues, “Accepting help is a sign of strength… Together for mental health.”
