I spent my childhood watching goddess Patty. I am so sad to hear the news.
TMZ reported, “Jackass” star “Goddess” portrayed by Patty Perez has died due to complications from type 1 diabetes. She passed away at the age of 57.
Perez’s daughter, Priscilla, took to social media to thank fans for the outpouring of love she and her family have received. It was so beautiful.
Patty was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at birth and struggled with the disease and her weight for years. She was featured in “Jackass 2” and “Jackass 2.5” where she portrayed herself in a “magic trick.” This would be where she would jump on co-star, Weeman, and make him “disappear.”
Perez is survived by her children, grandchildren, and mother. Her family has set up a GoFundMe to help cover funeral and other expenses.
