Brownstone Singer Charmayne "Maxee" Maxwell Dead From Fall


(AllHipHop News) Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell, a member of the 1990’s R&B group Brownstone, passed away on Friday night, according to TMZ.

The site reports Maxwell’s husband Carsten Soulshock came home and discovered the singer unconscious and bleeding. Paramedics were called to the home, and Maxwell was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital. Unfortunately, she died from loss of blood on the way to the facility.

Authorities believe the fatal gash on Maxwell’s neck was the result of a broken wine glass. It is believed she fell and cut herself on the shattered glass. Police do not suspect foul play.

There are conflicting reports regarding Maxwell’s death. BET is reporting she died in Denmark. There were also sites posting rumors Maxwell was suicidal before the incident. According to The Grio, her brother Brandon refuted the suicide claims on Twitter.

Brownstone is perhaps best well known for their 1995 Grammy nominated single “If You Love Me.” Other R&B chart hits include “Grapevyne” and “I Can’t Tell You Why.” The group’s debut album From the Bottom Up was certified platinum.
