Julee Cruise, a singer best known for her work on David Lynch’s iconic series' Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks, has died at age of 65.

Cruise’s husband Edward Grinnan confirmed the legend’s death in a heartfelt tribute on Facebook.

“She left this realm on her own terms,” the vocalist’s bereaved soulmate wrote. “No regrets. She is at peace … I played her B-52’s song ‘Roam’ during her transition. Now she will roam forever. Rest in peace, my love,” he wrote.

According to Variety, the cause of death is unknown. However, in 2018, the singer announced on social media that she had been battling systemic lupus for quite some time.

She penned, “I can hardly walk. And now it’s difficult to stand. My spine is crumbling and pinching on nerves.”
