We are now learning the untimely passing of “Euphoria” star Angus Cloud was caused by an accidental overdose.
The 25-year-old actor passed away suddenly on July 31, 2023, at his home in Oakland, California.
Angus, who starred as Fezco on the hit HBO series from Sam Levinson, died of acute intoxication following an accidental overdose, according to the Alameda County Coroner.
At the time of his death, the actor had fentanyl, cocaine, methaphetamine, and benzodiazepines (a depressant drug used to treat seizures, insomnia, and anxiety disorders) in his system.
Angus Cloud’s death came a short time after he lost his father – leaving fans wondering about his exact cause of death.
His mother, Lisa Cloud, took to Facebook to make it clear that her son’s death wasn’t “intentional.”
Friends, I want you all to know I appreciate your love for my family at this shattered time. I also want you to know that although my son was in deep grief about his father’s untimely death from mesothelioma, his last day was a joyful one.
He was reorganizing his room and placing items around the house with intent to stay a while in the home he loved. He spoke of his intent to help provide for his sisters at college, and also help his mom emotionally and financially.
He did not intend to end his life. When we hugged goodnight we said how much we loved each other and he said he would see me in the morning.
I don’t know if or what he may have put in his body after that. I only know that he put his head on the desk where he was working on art projects, fell asleep, and didn’t wake up.
We may find out that he overdosed accidentally and tragically, but it’s abundantly clear that he did not intend to check out of this world. His struggles were real.
He gave and received so much love and support to and from his tribe. His work in euphoria became a lightning rod for his generation and opened up a conversation about compassion, loyalty, acceptance and love.
His head injury 10 years ago miraculously didn’t result in death as it almost always does. He was given 10 bonus years and filled them with creativity and love.
Social media posts have suggested his death was intentional. I want you to know that is not the case.
To honor his memory, please make random acts of kindness part of your daily life.
Bless your hearts.
My sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to Angus Cloud’s mother, family members, friends, and fans.
May he rest in peace.
