When Anthony Riley was found dead in Philadelphia the other day, many of his fans on Facebook assumed that he’d died of a drug overdose. The Voice star’s problems with substance abuse had come to light following his sudden exit from the show, and, while he subsequently spent time in rehab, relapse certainly seemed like a possibility for the talented, but troubled musician. Despite these rumors, a new report has confirmed that Anthony committed suicide.
From the moment he stepped in front of the four judges on The Voice, it was obvious that Sawyer Fredericks would inevitably be this season’s winner. However, plenty of other standout artists also took the stage during season eight, including the remarkably talented Anthony Riley. Sadly, Anthony’s career was cut short far too soon, as he was recently found dead in Philadelphia.

Okay, NBC, we get it — Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are no longer an item. For some reason, Nick’s relationship status keeps popping up on America’s Got Talent, which is evidently the perfect place to pick up chicks.

There, he will finally be able to enjoy some much-needed peace and quiet.
