Michael Galeota, who starred in ‘The Jersey’ on the Disney Channel, recently passed away. He was 31 years old.

Sources revealed that the actor went to the hospital last week after complaining of abdominal pains and left the hospital against the doctors’ advice, reports TMZ.com.

The insiders added that Galeota went radio silent over the weekend and one of his friends went to his home to check on him. The actor didn’t answer, so the friend climbed through a window and found his body lying in the living room.

It is being said that the Disney star had a history of hypertension and high cholesterol. He also battled diverticulitis which is inflammation of the digestive tract.

So far, it is being said that he died due to natural causes. An autopsy is pending. (ANI)
