Fans of MTV's The Real World are mourning the loss of Hollywood season alum Joey Kovar, who was found dead Friday in Chicago, according to TMZ. He was 29.
Discovered by a female friend at a home near Chicago, the former reality star is said to have had blood coming out of his ears and nose. Authorities dispatched to the home following a 911 call pronounced him dead on the scene.
According to TMZ, family members believe drugs played a role in the death of Kovar, who famously sought help for cocaine and ecstasy addiction during a 2010 stint on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.
He also entered treatment midway through his stint on MTV's The Real World: Hollywood in 2008, where he came clean about his addition for the first time after his roommates staged an intervention.
