Valerie Fairman, who appeared on the MTV reality show 16 and Pregnant in 2010, has died of an apparent drug overdose at 23.

According to TMZ, she was staying with a friend who found her unresponsive in the bathroom.

Fairman's years-long struggle with drugs was featured on the show but recently her life took a darker turn. She's faced charges including prostitution and was recently charged with resisting arrest and giving a false ID to police.

Her 7-year-old daughter, Nevaeh, is now with her grandmother.
