Singer Charmayne Maxwell, who shot to fame as part of R&B group Brownstone in the 1990s, has tragically died following a freak accident.

The 46 year-old, who was reportedly alone with her son after picking him up from a football game, fell at her LA home, cutting her neck on broken glass.

TMZ report that Maxwell was discovered by her husband, producer Carsten Soulshock, who called the emergency services - but sadly it was too late. Charmayne had lost too much blood, and died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.

Police confirmed there was no suspicious circumstances.

Charmayne's brother Brandon Maxwell wrote on Twitter about the tragic news: "R.I.P my beautiful sister Charmayne "Maxee" Maxwell. I can't even believe I'm typing this right now."

He added: "Bad things happened to the most innocent people. My sister died in the most terrible way and I'm in so much pain right now.

"I can't stop shaking."

The singer's bandmate Teisha Brown also tweeted her condolences:

"I just need to be by you 1 more time on stage MAX! #BROWNSTONE #FOREVER R.I.H. I miss you already!! My heart is so heavy. I LOVE YOU SISTER...Goodnight MAXEE! I'm gonna take some Nyquil to try and get a full nights rest. I'm trying to be strong, but this isn't easy My Love! My eyes are severely heart is so crazy heavy and I'm trying to hit your high notes on "IF YOU LOVE ME!" #BROWNSTONE #FOREVER I will be listening for your voice...NIGHT."
