Dascha Polanco is mourning the passing of her boyfriend, producer Xtassy, who died suddenly on Friday (February 4).
The “Orange Is the New Black” star took to social media writing:
I’m broken, I’m distraught.
Have no words at this moment, thank you to all that have reached out. But, I would appreciate for those wanting to know about his death to wait until I’m ready to speak about my boyfriend, before falsifying the cause of his death.
Please respect my, our and @Xtassys family grieving process. It’s been hard on us all especially his kids.
I will share updates on his memorial soon.
Love to you all.

Xtassy, whose real name is Juan Abre, was a Dominican music producer and one half of the production duo A&X (Alcover and Xtassy).
Alcover confirmed the heartbreaking news of his passing when he took to Instagram writing:
Shattered is not even the slightest expression of what I feel right now.
Thinking that we don’t have you with us, I can’t assimilate it to write it down.
My little brother I love you, we became men, fathers, dreamers, professionals together, you inspired me every day we shared.
You are a legend and legends never die! I carry you with me forever.
God give us strength to understand your will.
There is a mother without her son, children without her father, brothers without consolation, help us we have lost a great human being.

Xtassy was 37.
My sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and all who knew and loved him.
May he Rest In Peace.
