Two weeks after Diem Brown’s death, another MTV star has passed away. Ryan Knight, who appeared on The Real World and The Challenge, was found dead Nov. 27 at the age of 29.
A friend revealed to TMZ that the reality star choked on his own vomit after a night of partying. Ryan openly struggled with substance abuse, admitting that he was addicted to painkillers and documented his recovery on the MTV series.
Jemmye Caroll, who shared an off-again/on-again relationship with Ryan throughout their appearances on The Challenge, shared her heartbreaking reaction on Twitter.
Words will never be enough to justify the connection we shared and the pain I will forever feel. RIP @Knight_MTV pic.twitter.com/EUzeoLEwdr— Jemmye Carroll (@JustJem24) November 27, 2014
