It’s thought the last time Sarah was pictured out in public at an event was in March 2018.

She hasn’t used her Twitter account since July 2019.

I hope you’re having a good time up there. RIP.

On it, she informed fans she was “taking a #timeout”.

“Are you still alive?”

Three weeks ago, one fan commented on Sarah’s last Instagram post. They asked: “Are you still alive?”

Another said: “I miss you.”

They also posted: “Sorry to hear about your death.”

The same person added: “I hope you’re having a good time up there. RIP.”

The cruel comments came as her ex-boyfriend Chad Johnson spoke about her “disappearance” in an Instagram live chat.

The pair met in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2017 and embarked on a short long-distance relationship.

“I don’t know where she is”

In a now-deleted Instagram live, Chad was asked by one of his followers if he still spoke to Sarah.

He said: “No, no one talks to Sarah Harding.”

Chad added: “I don’t know where she went. She went off the grid.”

However, the Mirror reports that a friend of Sarah has confirmed the star is alive and well.

It reported a pal had revealed: “She’s fine.”

Sarah shot to fame alongside bandmates Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002.

Their band, Girls Aloud, split in 2009.

Sarah then went on to pursue a career as an actress and DJ.

ED! has contacted Sarah’s reps for a comment on this cruel story.
