Although reports of Ethan having died came to light on Saturday, Sept. 5, the exact timing of his death wasn’t immediately known — nor were details of the circumstances leading up to his death.
Ethan’s best friend, Ava Louise, took to Twitter to share that the beauty influencer had been struggling with addiction.
“My best friend in the entire world, my twin flame…..the only person there for me when I had no one,” Ava tweeted on Saturday. “I love you Ethan, I am at a loss for words. I wish I knew how bad it was. I know what you’d want me to say to the Internet rn but I’m to heartbroken to say it. Rip.”
