Tiffini Hale, a former cast member of The All New Mickey Mouse Club and the pop group, The Party, has died. She was 46 years old.
The actress and singer passed away on Dec. 25, Christmas Day, according to her former co-stars and bandmates from the Disney Channel pop group The Party. “It is with the heaviest of broken hearts that we share the sad news of the passing of our beloved sister, Tiffini Talia Hale,” bandmates and All New Mickey Mouse Club members Deedee Magno Hall and Chasen Hampton posted on their Instagram pages on Thursday, Dec. 30.
They added, “Early this month, she suffered a cardiac arrest that resulted in her being left in a coma. After many prayers and with her family by her side, our dearest Tiff took her last breath Christmas morning. She is now resting peacefully. Tiffini’s family has kindly asked that their privacy be respected as they take this time to grieve. Tiffini’s mother Nancy and sister Tanya send their love to all, as well as many thanks for such kind support through the years.”
“On behalf of Tiffini’s family, and her Party and MMC brothers and sisters, we want to thank all of you for the love and well wishes you have expressed for our dear Tiffini,” the post continued. “Her beauty, talent, style and fun loving spirit will forever live in our hearts and memories. Forever Yours, Deedee, Chasen, Jeune, Damon and the entire Mickey Mouse Club family.”
