Bobby was multitalented. He served as a producer on a ton of films and television shows, including America’s Next Top Model and Sons of Hollywood. He was also a staff writer on the TV series, Trollz, which aired for a full season in 2006.

Sadly, Bobby died in the place he was born. He came into the world on September 2, 1984 in Los Angeles, CA, the exact city in which coroners confirmed his death, according to Us Weekly.

For now, information on Bobby’s death is somewhat scarce, however, a source revealed to Us that Lamar is currently “beside himself” in light of Bobby’s death, as the two were both close at the time of his death.

The timing of Bobby’s death is likely making the issue all the more upsetting for Lamar. In fact, Jamie’s death was so recent that, eerily, Bobby’s last Instagram was a photo tribute to Jamie. “#RIP To my big brother Jamie who always brought light into any room he walked into and laughter as well at all times J you will always be missed. Family for life. #BandOfBrothers #tbt,” Bobby wrote as the caption alongside the photo.

Following the death of Jamie, Lamar’s ex-wife Khloe Kardashianexpressed her sadness on social media, and was said to have reached out to Lamar. We will keep you posted, as this very sad story is still develping.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Bobby’s loved ones.
