America’s Next Top Model’ contestant Jael Strauss has died aged 34.

Sadly the reality star died just two months after announcing she’d been diagnosed with cancer.

Sources close to the model — who competed on season 8 of the reality show — told TMZ she died in a hospice on Tuesday around 11 AM.

The model went public with her cancer diagnosis in October but stopped treatment around Halloween.

She wrote after her diagnosis: “I was gonna write some long thing but some of you guys deserve to know, On October 2nd I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer.”

“It has aggressively spread throughout my body and is incurable. With treatment it may prolong my life longer than the ‘few months’ doctors said I could make it. I don’t want to die. I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013.”
