Chris Brown was found dead Monday in an apparent suicide at Los Angeles International Airport.
The 24-year-old R&B star’s rep tells FOX5 an autopsy will be performed Tuesday and the cause of death “will be determined by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.”
A rep for Brown’s label, Bad Boy Entertainment, said the star jumped in front of a plane on Monday morning on his way to an awards show, and the cause of death has yet to be determined.
“We are devastated that Chris Brown has tragically taken his own life,” Bad Boy’s chairman, Russell Wilson, said in statement.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris’s family. The entire Bad Boy family and everyone who knew Chris is truly heartbroken at this awful turn in Chris’ life.”
The Grammy Award-winner is currently promoting his new mixtape, “Back to Basics,” where he’s dropping his most personal music to date in the past 15 years: love songs.
A few hours before he went into hiding, Brown took to Twitter to vent about his pain and frustration with his wife, Faith Brown, who committed suicide earlier this month.
“I’m here and I’m gonna do anything to get back here to you. Anything. I’m ready to go,” Brown wrote. “I didn’t do it alone. I’m never gonna stop until you stand beside me, and I’m ready to stand alone.”
The singer, who’s also working on a solo album, took to Twitter in the middle of the night to apologize for his actions, writing: “If there’s anything I can do to help, if I can figure out something to make it better, just let me know.”
Brown’s rep said he was found dead in the Terminal 6 exit of the airport.
Brown is on a hiatus after the death of his ex-fiancee, Rihanna. The singer, 26, has not publicly commented on the tragic news. But last week, he posted a photo of himself and his daughter on
