Twilight actor Gregory Tyree Boyce, who played Tyler Crowley in the original film in 2008, has been found dead at the age of 30.
According to the BBC, Gregory 30 and his girlfriend Natalie Adepoju, 27, were found dead at home in Las Vegas. The police tell the BBC that they are awaiting toxicology reports and that it was not a criminal incident.
Boyce’s mom, Lisa Wayne, confirmed the news with a message on Facebook about her son.
“I’m sick without you. I’m torn, I’m lost. I’m in pain. I’d text you or call you when I was broken or worried about something, and you’d tell me, Ma, I got you, we’ll get thru this together. Boy. Why did you leave me. We lived in the same complex and you were my dinner. You’d cook, I’d come eat and chill and walk back home. During quarantine, we started walking in the evenings. Me, you, Natalie, Alaya and Kaniya found a beautiful trail to walk on, we loved it out there. I wanted to lose weight so bad, but you just kept cooking and I cannot resist your food. Since you’ve left me baby, I’ve lost 7 lbs. Lol.”
His mom shared that Gregory was in the “process of starting a wing business, West Wings.”
“He was on to something great and that was his passion. Greg had a tasting party for his wings, and they were all delicious to me. Him and Natalie were working as a team and she was his assistant and Louis D. Ledbetter was his co-chef. It was all in the making. He wanted me to be a part of the business aspect and had a great connection with Adrian McDaniel to be his business/financial manager. We were supposed to meet on Tuesday with my dad to discuss some plans for our near future to launch us into a great future, but that never happened.”
She concluded with, “Never another hug, kiss or to hear those words, I love you again. I’m broken. I love you Greggy, my Hunny.”
Boyce is survived by his mother and 10-year-old daughter.
A GoFundMe Page has been set up for Natalie. The page reads:
“We are writing this letter to let you know that our loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin, and friend Natalie Adepoju suddenly passed away on May 13, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV.
