Former Disney Channel Star Mourns the Sudden Death of Her Best Friend

By  | 

Losing someone you love is always incredibly tough, but when you suddenly lose your best friend, it rips your heart to pieces in a way that’s hard to comprehend. Tiffany Thornton, former star of Disney’s Sonny With A Chance, is unfortunately going through the immense pain that comes with death, as one of her best friends, Brittany Blanton, has tragically passed away.

Demi Lovato’s bestie took to Instagram to remember her bridesmaid (Demi was also in the wedding) and “very best” friend with the following note:



“I keep thinking this can’t be real. One of my very best friends is gone and the place she holds in my heart will never be filled. Brittany was one of the coolest people I’ve ever known, filled with the loudest and most contagious laughter, a huge heart, a beautiful smile and an unbelievable faith in others that not a lot of people have. It was such a blessing having her stand by me in my wedding and I was honored to stand by her in hers. From way too much eye shadow, bangs, boyfriends we THOUGHT were our soul mates, trips to Destin and Cancun, late nights at the Blanton casa with way too much queso, to growing older, nights of reminiscing, phone calls to help eachother keep our chins up in the tough times, and laughing at how cool we thought we were back in the day….and still eating way too much queso….you will forever be missed. Reserve me a spot next to you in Heaven BB, I know I’ll see you there again one day. Love you”



There aren’t many details surrounding Brittany’s death, but her obituary says she died Wednesday, December 2nd. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tiffany and all of Brittany’s friends and family at this incredibly difficult time.
