It sadly appears that Ryan Knight of Real World New Orleans (2010) has passed away at the age of 28. His friends and cast mates have confirmed the news on Twitter and MTV has confirmed it.
His cause of death has yet to be confirmed, however TMZ is reporting that this happened after a night of heavy partying with friends. He allegedly took some type of pill and choked on his vomit. During his season in New Orleans, Knight admitted to having addiction problems. While he seemed to have them under control while filming, it was a continued battle in his life.
In his obituary, his family extended the heartwarming gesture of asking for donations to Medgift in lieu of flowers. This is a cause that was not only important to Knight, but founded by his castmate Diem who also recently passed away.
This marks another sad day in the Real World/ Road Rule universe. Please keep his friends and family in mind.
