According to TMZ, Knight was partying with friends Wednesday night in good spirits and ended up at a friend’s house. He was reportedly found dead by a friend the next morning. No cause of death has been announced yet.
The news comes barely two weeks after fellow MTV reality star Diem Brown died at the age of 32 after losing a battle against ovarian cancer. Brown and Knight appeared on “The Challenge” together, and Knight posted a heartfelt tribute to her on Twitter the day before her funeral.
A funeral for an Angel tomorrow. She'll fly the highest and shine the brightest. And without a doubt she'll be dancing over us. Love Ya DB
