It saddens me to announce today that Ex- Disney star Lee Thompson Young known for his role in The Famous Jett Jackson was found dead today in what is believed to be an apparent suicide. The actor was 29 years old.
Young currently appears in the TNT show “Rizzoli & Isles” — and we’re told when he didn’t show up to work this morning, staffers called the landlord of Young’s L.A. home to check up on the actor.
When I was a kid, The Famous Jett Jackson was one of my favorite childhood shows. It breaks my heart to hear about these suicides in the news recently and knowing the pain and the hurt that these young actors are going through. RIP Lee Thompson Young.
