She never stopped recording and touring until her untimely death in 1987.

All of her releases are now officially released under the Universal label, originally they were almost all done for the Barclay and Orlando labels.

She died on May 3rd 1987 in Paris as a result of a barbiturates overdose, leaving a suicide note that reads (translated): "Life has become unbearable... Forgive me.".

She is buried in the Cimetière de Montmartre and a life-size statue of the singer stands alongside her tomb.
