Kovar’s family and close friends are blaming drugs for his death. He was struggling with drug addiction for quite some time and there was probably an overdose. A female friend found Joey’s body early this morning at a friend’s house – his ears and nose were bleeding. She called 911 straight away and the authorities pronounced him dead at arrival.
The authorities have said that no foul play is being suspected in the Kovar death case. Even though the death occurred in unknown and mysterious circumstances, there is no chance of criminal activity.
While on Celeb Rehab Joey Kovar was struggling with cocaine and ecstasy pill addiction. He also appeared on the reality TV show ‘Real World: Hollywood’, where he entered rehab during the season for battling alcohol and substance abuse.

Kovar remained sober and was trying his luck in acting these days, his family reported to the media. The reality star was a body builder and personal trainer before his venture into the media.
Conflicting with the rest of the family’s statement, his brother David Kovar said that drugs are the last to cause Kovar’s death. According to him his brother had been sober and clean for too long, and he was working on an acting project currently. The family had spoken to Joey last on Thursday.
