The actor’s manager, Alex Gittelson, confirmed the tragic news on Twitter on Friday, writing, “Devastated beyond words at the tragic loss of my dear friend and client, Cody Longo.”
“My heart breaks for his beautiful family,” Gittelson added. “You will be missed, brother.”
According to TMZ, Longo’s lifeless body was discovered in bed at a residence in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday.
The outlet claims his wife, professional dancer/choreographer Stephanie Longo, was at work at a local dance studio that day when she could not get ahold of her husband.
She reportedly called the police after feeling uneasy about not hearing from Longo and asked the officers to go check on him.
Per TMZ, cops responded to the home and knocked, but no one answered, so they kicked the door down.
That’s when they reportedly found him dead in a bedroom.
A family member told the outlet that Cody — who also appeared in “Bring It On: Fight to The Finish,” “Nashville” and “Hollywood Heights” — struggled with alcohol abuse for years.
He reportedly went to rehab in the summer of 2022, and Stephanie told TMZ he had been working hard on himself to fight for their three children: a daughter, 7, and two sons, 5 and 1.
