The circumstances surrounding Jon Hill’s death remain an ongoing mystery.
The famed drummer was pronounced dead on a sidewalk, a rep for the Los Angeles County Dept. of Medical Examiner-Coroner told Page Six via email.
His cause of death has been deferred pending further testing. The autopsy results will take “months,” the rep said.
Jon’s body has been released to the family, according to his case record.
A Youtube star who rose to fame sharing makeup tutorials on the platform, Jaclyn Hill announced last week that her ex-husband died on Aug. 10, 2022. He was 33 years old.
Days later, Jaclyn penned an emotional tribute to Jon for being the “most kind & compassionate person” she’d ever met.
“You looked people in the eyes & you truly listened & cared about what they had to say,” she wrote on social media. “You had so much talent you didn’t even know what to do with it. You turned your pain into art & touched so many people with your honesty in your music.”
The Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics founder, 32, and Jon married in 2009, but in 2018 they announced they would be separating because they didn’t fit together as husband and wife.
Jon later opened up about his struggle with drug addiction, confessing to Billboard in 2019 that it was the cause of their divorce.
“During our third year of marriage, it got to a point where I was having seizures because I was on so much stuff,” he told the outlet at the time. “I started breaking out in hives. So it became noticeable that something was wrong.”
Jon revealed that eventually he got sober but Jaclyn “decided she didn’t want to be” with him anymore.
