Ryan Breaux, the younger brother of singer Frank Ocean died on Sunday morning, August 1, in a fiery car crash alongside his classmate, Zeek Bishop.
Deputies responded to a call of smoke around Westlake Village, near Skelton Canyon Circle around 1:30am. When security operatives arrived, the vehicle had been fully engulfed in flames and two occupants were pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigation is still underway, however it was revealed that the car was travelling south on Westlake Boulevard when it supposedly left “the roadway and collided with a tree in the center median.” The force of the accident ripped the car in half and it was found engulfed in flames by the Ventura County sheriff’s deputies.
Amerian-Irish actor Pierce Brosnan’s son Paris Brosnan who confirmed the incident, shared photos and screenshots of old messages between himself and 19-year-old Breaux with the caption;
“To my brother, who was talented beyond belief, possessed a heart of gold, had an energy that was infectious, a smile & laugh that lifted everyone’s spirit, and was a loyal and authentic friend to anyone he knew. You were just getting started and ready to show the world who you were. You were a leader and you had a whole army of loyal soldiers behind you,” the post began. “Thank you for being there for me when I needed you most, thank you for all the wild nights, thank you for your music and all the late night studio sessions with Fray, thank you for blessing us ALL with your presence on this earth. I will carry you in my heart always. Until I see you again brother. Ryan Breaux forever & Zeek Bishop forever.”
Though Frank Ocean and his family have not confirmed news of his brother’s death, however friends of Breaux have taken to social media to send their love and condolences, leaving heartfelt messages on his last Instagram post uploaded last week.
