Former ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star Rah Ali Loses Child After Preterm Labor

Rah Ali, best known for her time on Love & Hip Hop, reportedly went into preterm labor last weekend at only four months pregnant, losing the baby shortly after giving birth.

TMZ reports Ali’s water broke Sunday (5/26) and she was immediately taken to the hospital. Unfortunately, doctors couldn’t save the baby girl, who died just minutes after being born. The medical emergency came as a shock to the family, as Ali had been given a clean bill of health by her prenatal physicians.

Nicki Minaj has offered her support, checking in on the good friend she claimed came to her defense during her altercation with Cardi B. Minaj also showed Ali love on 2017 single, “No Frauds.”
