Mychael Knight Has Died

Former "Project Runway" contestant Mychael Knight is dead at 39.

TMZ reports the fashion designer and reality star died Tuesday after recently after recently checking into a Georgia hospital for treatment of intestinal issues. He was surrounded by family and friends.

"We are still processing the untimely death of our son, brother, friend, and uncle. Mychael meant everything to us and we loved him dearly. He was generous and so full of life. This is how we choose to remember his legacy," his family said in a statement to Obvious magazine.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he first auditioned for Bravo's "Project Runway" during its second season in 2005 but didn't make the cut. He made the cast for season 3, though, finishing in fourth place and winning the "Fan Favorite" award. He returned to the show several times over the years, appearing in a 2009 "All-Star Challenge" and an "All Stars" spinoff in 2013.

this could be disease of course, but when i hear intestinal issues i think opioid abuse. if so, what a waste of one more wonderful life.
