The 24-year-old, who is extremely skinny, is speculated to have anorexia; although she herself has never confirmed it.
All her fans and followers, in general, have expressed their concerns regarding Eugenia’s health over years now. But, Eugenia seemed unbothered by her health condition as of lately.
Is Eugenia Cooney Dead?
Anorexia, otherwise called Anorexia Nervosa, is described as an eating disorder; in which people have an extreme fear of gaining weight. Thus, they are likely to starve themselves to the extent; that their body gets dangerously thin.
Eugenia’s last picture that she posted on her Instagram screams of how badly she needs help.

Hey guys! I’ve been offline for a while and I’m super sorry if I worried anyone!! I’ve just been taking a much needed break from the negativity and having some positive time offline. 🙂 I will be back to posting more soon!! ALSO I POSTED A KAIRI COSPLAY VIDEO!!

If she is anorexic, which most of us believe she is, Eugenia is at an undeniable risk of dying. As per the statistics, Anorexia nervosa is claimed to have the highest death rate of any psychiatric illness. In between 5-20% of people who get diagnosed with this disorder are prone to die.
Chronic malnutrition from anorexia can lead to brain damage and general organ failure which eventually causes death; but, not all people die!
Recovering from anorexia is completely possible, however, the recovery process takes longer. Differing from people to people it might take a year or less in minimum to more than 7 years in the extreme.
So, considering that, if Eugenia is undergoing treatment as she stated in her tweet; she will take time to heal. Therefore, we believe Eugenia is alive and not dead!
Update: Eugenia Cooney is Alive
On 31st May 2019, the status of Eugenia being alive got confirmed by her hair stylist Edward Tricomi. Edward posted a picture of Eugenia where she appeared to have gotten a new hair cut,
Judging by the looks of the picture, Eugenia seems to be recovering well. In comparison to Cooney’s last post on her Instagram, she seams to have gained weight.
More importantly, she appears to be happy and that is all that matters! Hopefully, Cooney will be back posting videos, shortly!
