She also appeared in ads for Canon, Virgin Atlantic, AXE and Lynx, and starred in Channel 5’s The Bachelor.

Her former manager confirmed her tragic death to The Sun.

Devastated fans and music stars also took to social media to pay tribute to the model.

NayNay wrote: “What a light u were, Your outer exterior matched your insides, so beautiful.

“I’m genuinely shocked and saddened you’re gone. Rest in eternal peace Tabby.”

While Vas J Morgan, creative director of a leisurewear company Sosala, said: “My heart is broken.”

A third wrote: “Rest in peace beautiful soul.”

“Heartbroken. A true angel – love you tabs – sending you love and light as you transition x,” said another.

A Instagram user wrote: “This definitely came as a shock. My sincere condolences to your family and friends.”

While another said that Tabby was “one of a kind”.

England footballer Sterling previously had a hotel date with the lingerie model at a posh Manchester hotel in March 2016.

It came just weeks after he set up home with Paige Milian in a $A6.7 million pad in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

Tabby also dated Balotelli for seven months after first meeting the striker in a nightclub in 2011.

The Italian added her as a friend on Facebook and then convinced her to go on a date with him.

“I really fell for Mario – against my better judgment,” she told the Mirror in 2013. “He told me he wanted us to settle down and have a family.

“Then I found out he was having a baby with his ex, there were constant stories about him partying with other women, and all the ‘she’s just a friend’ texts.

“So I ended it in November. Mario couldn’t believe it and thought he could sweet-talk me into going back to him.

“When he realised there was no chance he took it very badly. But that’s because Mario has never been dumped by a woman before. He’s used to getting exactly what he wants.”

Tabby featured in music videos for Snoop Dogg, Dizzee Rascal and B.O.B.

She also had a master’s degree in marketing.
