Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell, most known for her work with the R&B group Brownstone, died in Denmark Saturday after what is believed described as an “accident,” though according to unnamed sources, family members are looking into whether she committed suicide.
However, her brother, Brandon Maxwell, is vehemently denying rumors that his sister hinted at suicide on Twitter before her death.
Maxwell, who was born in Guyana, was a member of the R&B group Brownstone in the 1990s.
The group Brownstone at one point was signed to Michael Jackson’s MJJ label and one of their biggest hits was 1995’s “If You Love Me” which garnered the group a Billboard Music Award and a Grammy nomination.
The group also included Nicci Gilbert and Mimi Dobby at the height of its success.
Her brother, Brandon, has taken to social media to mourn his sister’s death.
Brandon Maxwell also denied rumors that his sister’s death was a suicide, saying in a tweet “People are so dumb.This is actually BS…” he tweeted, with a link to a blog post alleging Maxwell posted a suicide note.
He also wrote, “Bad things happen to the most innocent people.
My sister died in the most terrible way and I’m in so much pain right now.”
