Actress Yvette Wilson, who had been battling cervical cancer, has died at the age of 48, CNN's confirmed.

A friend of Wilson's tells CNN that she passed away on Thursday around 7:00 p.m.

Wilson was perhaps best known for portraying Andell Wilkerson on the '90s sitcom "Moesha," on which she starred alongside singer Brandy in the titular role. She also played Andell on the "Moesha" spin-off "The Parkers," which also starred Oscar winner Mo'Nique and aired from 1999 to 2004.

Wilson's "Moesha" co-star Shar Jackson, who's also appeared on reality shows "Ex Wives Club" and "Celebrity Fit Club," mourned the loss of Wilson on Twitter Thursday.

"Oh God. My heart is soooo unbelievably broken," she posted. "I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but God has chosen to take my sister Yvette home."
