Revealing the cause of Tara’s death to be natural causes, Santa tweeted: "Today the Coroner's report states that Tara died of natural causes - a perforated ulcer. She did not have a brain tumour.
"Tara's good friends and family know that she was in high spirits in her last days. She had plans, trips and had written a moving new song."
