Toni Braxton's niece, Lauren Braxton, has died. She was 24 years old.

Lauren's father -- Toni's younger brother, Michael Conrad Braxton Jr. -- tells TMZ that her death was related to a heart condition. The outlet reports that according to law enforcement, Lauren was unresponsive when they responded to a 911 call on Monday afternoon. She was then pronounced dead by paramedics.

Aside from Toni, Lauren is also survived by her aunts Traci, Towanda, Trina and Tamar. Trina shared a picture of Lauren on Instagram on Tuesday, calling her an angel.

"God sent me another angel!" Trina wrote. "Rest in Heaven Lauren 'LoLo' Braxton. ❤️."

A rep for the Braxton family tells ET, "We ask that you please respect the Braxton family's privacy in this time of sadness and loss."

ET spoke to Trina earlier this month, and she talked about finding love again after the sudden death of her ex-husband. Watch the video below for more:
