Pearl committed suicide, reports said. The matter is being investigated by Oshiwara police, but they have refused to comment on the issue.
As per the reports, Pearl allegedly jumped from the terrace of her Lokhandwala apartment on Thursday night around 12.30 a.m. and was declared brought dead by the Kokilaben Hospital.
There have been news reports claiming that the actress was struggling to get a break in Bollywood for some time but with not much luck.
Reports also claimed that she was mentally disturbed, had temper issues and would often break into fights with her mother. These reports have hurt her family members. Hence they have issued the statement claiming all these are “false”. (Agency)
