Hale, who appeared alongside Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake on the popular Disney show, went into cardiac arrest that left her in a coma.
“It is with the heaviest of broken hearts that we share the sad news of the passing of our beloved sister, Tiffini Talia Hale,” Mickey Mouse Club co-stars, Deedee Magno and Chasen Hampton, wrote.
