Hey M Girls,

M is saddened to hear that Avalanna Routh, aka "Mrs. Bieber" who Justin Bieber spent a lot of time visiting and talking with,, has sadly passed away. A message was posted on her Twitter that read: "Our darling Avalanna went to Heaven this morning. Oh Avalanna, the brightest star - you took our hearts with you, our greatest Love."

Justin hasn't tweeted anything yet, but over the past few months, he had become close with 6-year old Avalanna, who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and called herself Justin's biggest fan. In fact, just three months ago, Justin met up with Avalanna and spent time with her on The TODAY show. See the sweet clip below:

UPDATE: Justin tweeted about the news: "just got the worst news ever. one of the greatest spirits i have ever known is gone. please pray for her family and for her. RIP Avalanna. i love you. Please show respect to her and her family. say a prayer for her and for them. i miss her."
