“Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. Angus was open about his battle with mental health and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence,” the statement continued.
In an update posted shortly after the initial news broke, TMZ said that Cloud may have died of an overdose at his parents home in Oakland. Oakland police and the local fire department responded to a 911 call from the property, allegedly made by Cloud’s mother.
Cloud apparently did not have a pulse. He was pronounced dead at the scene, TMZ reported.
The family asked that the world remember Cloud “for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss.”
