Ryan Knight of MTV’s The Real World died at the age of 29. He was found by friends on Thanksgiving day, according to TMZ, “after a night of partying.” Knight’s death follows the death of fellow MTV reality star Diem Brown who died at the age of 32 after a long battle against ovarian cancer.
Although Knight was reportedly in good spirits the day before his death — friends say he was happy in a new relationship — Knight’s last tweet, just hours before his death, seems like a cryptic message. “You used to mean a lot,” he tweeted. And two days before that he tweeted: “Have the type of life, that when you die no one will dare say, ‘he left us for a better place.”
