Update: ‘Boyzone’ Singer, Stephen Gately, Found Dead

October 11, 2009

Majorca (ChattahBox) – Stephen Gately, the 33-year-old former singer from the Irish pop band ‘Boyzone’, passed away while vacationing with his partner in Spain.

Gately and his husband, Andrew Cowles, had been vacationing together when the death occurred. While there are no suspicious circumstances, according to police, no cause of death has been released.

The other ‘Boyzone’ members released this official statement on their website:

“We are completely devastated by the loss of our friend and brother, Stephen. We have shared such wonderful times together over the years and were all looking forward to sharing many more. Stephen was a beautiful person in both body and spirit. He lit up our lives and those of the many friends he had all over the world. Our love and sympathy go out to Andrew and Stephen’s family. We love you and will miss you forever, ‘Steo’”

Update: Allegedly, the family has been told the most likely scenario is Stephen had a bit too much to drink, vomited in his sleep and choked. It was a terrible accident.”

    So tragic for his husband and family.

    To those saying it is impossible to die of natural causes at 33, that is nonsense. One of my friends dropped dead from a heart condition he didn’t know he had, he was only 20 and seemed very fit and healthy. At this stage, nobody knows what happened, just seems like he died in his sleep.

    OK if he did not die from drugs or sudden death syndrone it was probly the result of an anal rupture as a result of inserting somthing way to big up there much like the barrymoore thing im sorry if this sounds offensive but it is a realistic explanation

    Fashion literacy comes very naturally to the female species. Anyone who is not that fashion

    literate can be taught and shown around. However the instincts have to there with in that

    person from the very beginning. As they say ‘you have to be born with it’. Those who are

    born with it don’t have to try that hard to understand and quickly make their favourites.

    After all brands like Christian Louboutin make people stop and adore their piece of work. The

    Christian Louboutin Replicas became instantly popular as they started getting the desired

    quality from the reputed stores.
