US website TMZ have reported that reality TV star Chris Pearson passed away in hospital
Ex on the Beach star Chris Pearson has reportedly died after being stabbed in Los Angeles.
US website TMZ claims the 25-year-old died over the weekend.
According to several of his friends and law enforcement, TMZ were told Chris got into an altercation early on Sunday morning around 2am in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley, and the other person ended up stabbing him.
He was transported to a hospital, but died around 3:30am from his injuries.
Chris’ friends have started a GoFundMe for his family back in Colorado, which is where he’s from, and the page describes the circumstances of his death as a “tragic encounter.”
Their statement on the GoFundMe page reads: “Unfortunately, Chris passed away early Sunday morning unexpectedly after a tragic encounter.
“Chris was the one person that loved with his whole heart. He had so much love and energy to give to every single person he crossed paths with. He wouldn’t leave the room until he made sure every single person was happy.
“Chris was the most determined person there could ever be. He had a dream, set a goal & didn’t stop until he achieved that goal. It didn’t matter what or who he lost on the way, he made sure he had his eye on one thing and one thing only.
“His smile lit up an entire room. The only other thing that Chris loved more than his music was his family and friends.”
It continued: “All Chris wanted was to make it far in life to help his family and make them proud.
Chris was taken from us way way too soon. Nobody was ready for this, there was so much more he had set to accomplish.
“We ask that you please donate or share this to help His mother and the family out with funeral expenses. No donation is too small, every cent counts. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
