Lee Thompson Young — who played the main character on Disney’s “The Famous Jett Jackson” — has committed suicide, TMZ has learned. He was 29.
Young’s body was discovered inside his North Hollywood home Monday with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to sources. It’s unclear why Young took his own life.
Lee’s publicist said, “It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning … Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed.”
