Justin Bieber has paid tribute to a young fan on Twitter, after the six-year old lost her battle with cancer on Wednesday (26th September).
Avalanna Routh - who was called Mrs Bieber by her family and friends - passed away after suffering from a rare form of the disease, after being diagnosed with AT/RT, or an atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, aged just 9 months.
In a statement, her family posted on Twitter: "Our darling Avalanna went to Heaven this morning. Oh Avalanna, the brightest star - you took our hearts with you, our greatest love."
The Boyfriend singer was clearly moved by her death, later tweeting: "Just got the worst news ever. One of the greatest spirits I have ever known is gone. Please pray for her family and for her. RIP Avalanna. I love you."
Biebs then posted a picture of himself with Avalanna, accompanying the snap with the heartfelt message: "Please show respect to her and her family. Say a prayer for her and for them. I miss her."
The 18-year heartthrob previously met Routh in New York earlier this year after her family created the "Get Avalanna to Meet Justin Bieber" Facebook petition.
They also appeared on the Today Show together in June, with Justin tweeting afterwards: "One of the best things I have ever done. She was AWESOME! Feeling really inspired now #MrsBieber."
