TikTok star burned alive by ex-husband during livestream as fans hear chilling screams
A TikTok star has died after her enraged ex-husband allegedly set her on fire during a livestream.
The 30-year-old victim, known as Black Girl Rahm on TikTok and identified as Ram in foreign reports, was attacked on September 14 in the mountainous prefecture of Aba in western China.
Her ex-partner allegedly broke into her home and carried out the brutal attack in front of family members.
Ram was left with burns that covered 90% of her body and fell into a coma, MailOnline reports.
She fought for her life in intensive care for two weeks, and was tragically pronounced dead on September 30.
Police arrested the attacker, identified only as Tang, on suspicion of intentional homicide.
Some reports suggested he launched the attack after she began divorce proceedings due to domestic violence.
The couple have two young sons.
Ram was a popular vlogger who rose to fame on Douyin, the Chinese equivalent of TikTok.
She had more than 782,000 followers and shared her last video on September 14.
Ram performed a song and shared her best wishes with her fans.
Later on, her live broadcast cut to black before fans heard screams, Beijing Youth Daily reports.
Following the tragedy, Zhuoma asked for funds to cover Ram’s healthcare – with approximately one million yuan (£114,038) raised for the family.
Around 60% of the funds were spent on her treatment, and the rest will be donated back to the fundraising platform
