Jackass star Patty Perez dead at 57: The actress passed away after suffering from kidney failure due to Type 1 diabetes
Patty Perez who starred in two Jackass movies has passed away at the age of 57.
The actress, who was also known as Goddess Patty, had been suffering from complications with her kidneys after battling diabetes for years.
Her daughter Priscilla confirmed the death and told the site Patty had been 'treated for complications related to her type 1 diabetes.'
'We want to express our immense gratitude for the love and kindness everyone has shown to our mom,' said the daughter.
'Being able to entertain and bring light and happiness to people was the highlight of her life. She was so proud of the work she did in the film industry.'
There is a Go Fund Me page set up for Perez wit the hope of collecting $6,000 for her funeral expenses, as well as other things.
It was added she had been battling her type 1 diabetes since birth.
And the daughter also shared that her passing was no way related to COVID, which has now seen more deaths than the 1918 Spanish flu.
Patty was also battling her weight which contributed to her poor health.
In 2006 she was in the film Jackass 2 and also the follow up, Jackass 2.5.
She played herself opposite costar Jason Acuna, who also went by the nickname Wee Man.
In one Jackass skit, she laid on top of Acuna; her body was large enough to hide him completely.
Jackass' top star Johnny Knoxville seems to get a laugh out of this asking where 'Wee man' went.
She also appeared on one episode of My Big Fat Fetish about men who were attracted to larger women. The show also explored how challenging it was for her to do simple things because of her weight.
Patty is survived by her four children, her mother and her grandchildren, Priscilla shared.
