Charmayne Maxwell of the '90s R'n'B group Brownstone has died. The singer reportedly suffered a fatal fall in Denmark on Saturday.

According to a Danish media outlet, Maxwell was attending a soccer game when she fell. Her death has been described as an "accident," though according to unnamed sources, family members are looking into whether she committed suicide.

Maxwel's brother Brandon Maxwell, however, denies rumors that his sister hinted at suicide on Twitter before her death. "People are so dumb. This is actually BS..." he tweeted, with a link to a blog post alleging Maxwell posted a suicide note. He also wrote, "Bad things happen to the most innocent people. My sister died in the most terrible way and I'm in so much pain right now."

Friends of the singer, known affectionately as "Maxee," have been reacting to the tragic news on social media. Teisha Brown, Maxwell's fellow Brownstone member, wrote, "I just need to be by you 1 more time on stage MAX!"

The girl group, signed to Michael Jackson's MJJ label, scored its biggest hit with 1995's "If You Love Me." The song earned them a Billboard Music Award and a Grammy nomination. 

She was married to Danish music producer Carsten Soulshock Schack and is survived by a son.

Our condolences go out to Maxwell's family.
