The star passed away at the age of 31 on Friday (05Jun15) at a hospital in Atlantic City, New Jersey after suffering a heart attack.

Initial reports suggested the tragedy was linked to complications she experienced following a liposuction procedure six weeks before her death, but a rep for the actress has now spoken out to clear up the speculation.

Agarwal's manager Uma Shankar tells NJ.com that the actress was battling obesity and pulmonary illness, and insists the cosmetic surgery was not linked to her death.
