Chris Pearson, a reality actor who appeared in Season 1 of MTV’s Ex on the Beach, was stabbed to death on early Sunday morning.
A representative from the Los Angeles Police Department confirms a 25-year-old male named Christopher Westley Pearson was discovered at the 22100 block of Erwin Street at 2:09 a.m. who “became involved in a verbal argument with the suspect (no description given). During the argument, the suspect produced a weapon and stabbed the victim. The victim was transported by LAFD to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. The suspect fled to an unknown location.”
A GoFundMe account opened earlier today describes Pearson’s death as being from “a tragic encounter.”
The show’s official Twitter account lamented Pearson’s death on Monday.
“We are deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Chris Pearson. Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”
