Days of Our Lives: Tyler Christopher’s Family Scamming Fans After His Death
Tyler Christopher died in his San Diego apartment on October 31 of cardiac arrest. The actor was best known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital and as Stefano DiMera on Days of Our Lives.
There was a lot of speculation that Tyler might not have been in a good time in his life right before his death, as he was unemployed and might have been struggling with substance abuse and addiction once again.
Tyler was arrested back in May for reportedly being intoxicated in public and sleeping on the floor of an airport.
However, Tyler’s good friend in San Diego and sponsor took to his Instagram account to assure his fans that he was a responsible adult that took care of all his needs while he was still alive.
She also said that he had life insurance, attended numerous charity events and was a mental health advocate. The Instagram post also reads:
The narrative that Tyler left this world without proper planning is completely false and disrespectful. Any attempts to fundraise on his behalf either for funeral expenses or his children would be against his wishes and are not authorized by his estate. Tyler deserved to pass with dignity.
