EJNYC aired on E! for one season in 2016 and starred Magic Johnson's son, EJ Johnson, who celebrated McHenry's birthday with a loving social media post last week.

Lyric McHenry, a reality TV producer and daughter of movie director Doug McHenry, was found dead in the Bronx Tuesday morning.

A small Ziploc bag of cocaine was allegedly found on Lyric's person, according to the New York Daily News.

McHenry was found on a sidewalk at 5 a.m. above the Major Deegan Expressway at Undercliff Avenue and Boscobel Place in Highbridge in the Bronx area of New York, according to the New York Daily News. "Police are investigating, the matter is ongoing".

Lyric was believed to be 20 weeks pregnant at the time of death.

NYPD PIO Officer Detective Brown shares with HollywoodLife.com that "The name of victim has not been released because family has not been notified and it was irresponsible for news outlets to put out the name".

She had no visible signs of trauma, and was unconscious and unresponsive, according to police. In addition, the reality star posted video of herself snapping selfies in the bathroom and mingling with friends who wished her a happy birthday.

Lyric's mother Jennifer had posted a sweet birthday message for her daughter last week on Instagram, writing, "Happy 26 years my handsome princess Lyric Leigh".

"Why does she look so bomb?" I love you more than any words or gifts can express! Your constant love, respect and companionship gives me the confidence to live my truth every single day and I am so blessed that even as baby divas we recognized the greatness in each other.

Her sister Maya McHenry joined in on the celebrations.

McHenry was constantly posting photos of herself living what seemed to be a fabulous life and often posed with her pal, EJ Johnson.
