Actor Nelsan Ellis, who portrayed Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s “True Blood,” died from heart complications on Saturday, and now his family wants everyone to know why.
Ellis’ manager Emily Gerson Saines shared with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that his death came as a result of his attempt to quit alcohol.
I am so sorry to hear this news. They are saying he went to rehab many times and it failed him. Of course it did. True Blood has a stepper as one of its stars, a writer and I beleive one of the creators is a stepper. So can you imagine how they must have circled him and pushed him to their Failing rehabs like Betty Ford or Hazelton or where Mad Mens Star went.
My condolences to the family . SAD — so sad – must stop AA in Hollywood pushing AA horshit from 1935 .
