It’s a sad day in Hollywood. According to The Huffington Post, Joey Kovar from The Real World was found dead in Chicago last week. He was 29 years old. TMZ says cocaine overdose was the suspected cause of death.
It was no secret that Kovar struggled with drug abuse. The reality star appeared on Celebrity Rehab 3 where he saught help to deal with his drug addiction. Kovar first talked about his drug problems on The Real World, and left the show early to get help. Although Kovar struggled with addiction to cocaine and ecstasy, The Huffington Post says he made a living as a personal trainer and sought a career in acting.
Poor Kovar, I have a soft spot for anyone dealing with any kind of drug addiction. Even when you are able to stop doing drugs like cocaine and ecstasy, withdrawl can be devastating. What a terrible loss for Kovar’s friends and family. His fellow cast mates tweeted their respects.Tags: joey kovar, MTV, The Real World
