Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 28 (ANI): Katy Perry has penned a heartfelt tribute for close friend and veteran music executive Angelica Cob-Baehler, who lost a battle to cancer on November 21.
Calling her "one of my biggest champions and realest friends," the 'Roar' singer posted a series of pictures with Cob-Baehler on Instagram.
"Six days ago, one of my biggest champions and realest friends, Angelica Cob-Baehler moved on from this place. She was one of the strongest women I have ever known - fighting her cancer like friggin' Rocky, enduring chemo, immunotherapy, a tracheotomy, feeding tubes for months on end, and experimental cancer treatment trials," Perry began.
"I watched her go through many stages for over a year, but a few things remained constant: her sarcastic/wicked sense of humor, her positive outlook, and the incredible love she had for her family."

The 'Chained to the Rhythm' singer also mentioned how Cob-Baehler "stole" her files from one record label to bring them to another.
"We had a lot of wins together for over 10 years, and I am incredibly grateful she was a born fighter/no s***-taker because she practically willed me into existence as a young artist when she 'stole my files' from limbo at Columbia Records and brought them to life at Capitol Records," Perry wrote.
"She may be gone from this place, but she will never be forgotten," Perry concluded. "Rest in power, my angel, and don't worry, we got Chapman and the girls."
According to Billboard, Cob-Baehler was instrumental in discovering and developing acts - most notably Perry - whom she met in the mid-2000s. Over her 25-year career, she worked with artists including Stone Temple Pilots, John Mayer, Death Grips, System of a Down and 30 Seconds to Mars. (ANI)
