It is with great sadness that I report that ex-Disney star Lee Thompson Young has committed suicide. Thompson is most famous for his starring role on the popular Disney series, The Famous Jett Jackson. According to TMZ
Sources tell us Young’s body was discovered with a gunshot wound that appears to be self-inflicted.
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.
We’re told … when the landlord opened the door, he discovered Young’s body.
Condolences go out to his family and friends.
