Sara Lee was married to former WWE wrestler Westin Blake. They are parents to three children.
No cause of her death has been revealed.
Lee’s final Instagram post mentioned her recovery from a sinus infection.
“Celebrating finally being healthy enough to go to the gym 2 days in a row. First ever sinus infection kicked my butt,” she wrote earlier this week.
WWE wrestler Bull James launched a GoFundMe to raise money for Weston and Lee’s children. The campaign had tripled its $20,000 goal, raising nearly $76,000.
“We’re all shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Tough Enough winner Sara Lee. As her loving husband, Cory, picks up the pieces and continues to raise their 3 children, the last thing anyone in that position wants to be worried about is money and paying for a funeral and everything else that comes along with it,” James wrote. “The wrestling community has always been one to come together in the wake of tragedy and this is no different. Every penny raised from this will go directly to Cory and the kids. Thank you all in advance. RIP Sara, you were one of the good ones.”
