'Moesha' star Yvette Wilson dies at 48
Yvette Wilson, who played Andell Wilkerson on 1990s hit "Moesha" and its spinoff "The Parkers," has died at 48, NewsOne is reporting.
Wilson's "Moesha" co-star Shar Jackson tweeted on Friday, "I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home."
NewsOne reported a month ago that Wilson had stage four cervical cancer and kidney failure, and was struggling to pay her medical bills.
Friend Jeffrey Pittle held an online fundraiser that brought in more than $13,000 for Wilson.
Wilson, a Los Angeles native, began her career in stand-up comedy.
She also appeared in "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood," "Friday," "House Party 3" and other films and TV series.
