It’s a sad day for the many artists who have worked with famed music agent Jeremy Geffen, as they say goodbye to the man who helped build their careers. Jeremy, who worked with the likes of Britney Spears, D12 and P Diddy has died, according to the Blast. While the reason behind the music exec’s death is still under investigation, he was pronounced dead at 5:41 am of a suspected overdose, according to the site.
The heartbreaking news came early on the morning of August 23.

I can’t even begin to explain how hurt I am while writing this post. To sit here and try to explain how devastated I am would be useless. The things you helped me achieve in my life as well as in this business will never be forgotten. Rest in peace my manager and forever my good friend Jeremy Geffen. #jeremygeffen #bestmangerever #goodfriend #neverforgotten #gonebutneverforgotten #lifeistooshort #restinpower
