He was a rising star and had lots of potential at just 29 years of age. Lee Thompson Young is dead and the cause of his death seems to be suicide

This is so tragic and the Hollywood and a large number of Lee Thompson Young fans are mourning the sudden death of the actor who was a successful actor and was loved by his fans across the North America and beyond. He was just 29.

When the report of his death first appeared, there was a sort of disbelief and we like others thought that this was just a prank that we see so often in the days of social networking and search engine. We have seen how the rumors of many actors and singers have gone viral without any basis and so we hoped against hope that this may also be a rumor that finally turns out to be false. But apparently our hopes of the news being a mere rumor ended when his agent and publicist confirmed that not just the reports of the actor’s death was a reality, the more painful part was the fact that he took his own life apparently by committing suicide.

Though thus far more details are awaited, but his fans are aghast over the news of Lee Thompson Young’s death as he was still at the pinnacle of his career and had a large number of fans throughout the US and beyond.

Young’s publicist and manager Jonathan Baruch while confirming the 29 year old actor’s death said, “It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning…Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed. We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family and friends at this difficult time.” Young who began his acting career very early got his big break when he starred in the Disney Channel show “The Famous Jett Jackson.” He was part of the ongoing TNT’s police drama “Rizzoli & Isles.”
