Vegan influencer Zhanna Samsonova’s chilling final Instagram post just days before she ‘starved to death’ | The Sun
VEGAN influencer Zhanna Samsonova shared a haunting final post saying "life is meaningless" just days before she died.
The 39-year-old is feared to have starved to death after attempting to live on a fruit only diet.
She previously explained how she had only been eating and drinking just fruits, sunflower seed sprouts, smoothies, and juices for four years.
The Russian national – known as Zhanna D'Art to her social media followers – died on July 21 in Malaysia while on a tour of south-eastern Asia.
But just days earlier, she shared a chilling message on her Instagram story saying: "Life is meaningless but worth living provided you recognise it's meaningless."
She shared the note over a selfie with her mouth open.

Friends say her raw vegan diet had become worryingly restrictive in recent months.
One pal said: "A few months ago, in Sri Lanka, she already looked exhausted.
"I lived one floor above her and every day I feared finding her lifeless body in the morning. I convinced her to seek treatment, but she didn't make it."
Her mother Vera Samsonova said she had caught a "cholera-like infection" just hours before she was due to fly home.

Zhanna's official cause of death has not been released yet, however.
The influencer was an active promoter of a raw food vegan and previously said: "I eat simple food, although I have a lot of experience as a raw food chef. I love creating my own recipes and inspiring people to eat healthier.
"For the last four years, my diet has been only fruits, sunflower seed sprouts, fruit smoothies and juices.
" I only got to this level after five years on a completely raw vegan diet.
"I see my body and mind transform every day. I love my new me, and never move on to the habits that I used to use."
She also claimed to look younger than her friends thanks to her diet.
Zhanna said: "I feel very sad when I see most of my peers.
"Because of junk food, they look much older than their age."
Zhanna's family is waiting for a medical report and a death certificate to show her official cause of death.
