Troop's Reggie Warren dead at 52 – R&B icon dies in San Bernardino after being recently hospitalized with health issues

REGGIE Warren, one of the original members of TROOP, has died at age 52.

Warren, who formed the R&B group in the 80s alongside four childhood friends, passed away on Sunday at his California home.

A rep for TROOP confirmed to TMZ that Warren had been dealing with health issues for some time, and passed away at his San Bernardino County home, surrounded by family.

Warren's family reportedly does not want to discuss the details of his death at this time.

The rep said that after being hospitalized in January, he was released on Saturday so he could spend his last moments with family.

TROOP released their debut album in 1988, which included the hit song Mamacita.

Their second album, Attitude, was more well-known, and featured hits like All I Do is Think of You and Spread My Wings.

Warren's bandmate Steve Russell took to Instagram to mourn the loss of his longtime friend.

"Job well done my brother I will see you on the other side," he wrote alongside a photo of Warren.

TROOP is an acronym for Total Respect of Other People.

The group released five albums in the 80s and 90s before going on hiatus in 1998.

They got back together for a sixth album in 2004, and went on tour again.
