Friends offered their condolences to Robert Rico, De Mazieres’ boyfriend, online. “May she rest in peace 🙏. Keeping you in my prayers,” one wrote on his Instagram page
Another wrote, “I hope your ok Robert.. I ran into her at Macy's not long ago and we talked about you.. She loved you a lot- she was really happy!! Hang in there!!”
De Mazieres also was apparently the owner of the iamthefoodie.com website, which gave no information about her in the “About Me” section and primarily featured shots of food dishes.
