Disney star Michael Galeota was found dead in his apartment on Sunday.
The 31-year-old had been complaining about stomach pains earlier in the week and even admitted himself to the hospital, but went home against doctors advice, revealed TMZ.
The New York native was best known for his series The Jersey on the Disney Channel.
His body was discovered by a friend who went to his apartment in Glendale, California on Sunday to check on him.
When he failed to answer the door, his pal climbed through a window and found his body lying in the living room.
Sources told TMZ Michael had a history of hypertension and high cholesterol. He also battled diverticulitis — inflammation of the digestive track.
So far it’s being treated as a death from “natural causes.” An autopsy is pending.
