Neighbor Reveals Details On Tragic Death Of Joseph Gordon Levitt's Brother

| Filed under: DrugsSad Sad


The brother of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dan, passed away suddenly on Monday and many believe it was due to drugs. He had been staying with his girlfriend in an apartment in Hollywood and their neighbor believes that he may have been getting into trouble.

The neighbor said:

"They ( Dan and his friends) had been partying, and we were woken up with the girl screaming. She came running out to the front garden of their apartment and some people went out to help her.

The paramedics were called, but he was found dead surrounded by needles and syringes. He had been living here on and off for the past few years, and he and his friends were not very popular to tell you the truth.

One time they set a car on fire infront of the building, and there was always groups of people coming and going from that apartment. I'm sorry that he died, but I'm honestly not that surprised either.

A source from the police department believe the death was drug related and the case has been closed. An autopsy was completed, but results are pending due to toxicology results."

So sad.

    That's what happens when they give you a LIFE-LIMITING CRIMINAL RECORD & Force you to convert to the 12-Step Religious Cult….your life is over!

    That sucks, but at least he lived a good life. He had an awesome job and obviously had some awesome times. His soul has been released into the infinite and for that his friends and family should be happy. People need to stop having a negative view of death. It's only the begining.

    wow. i didn't even know about this. i'm so sorry for joseph and his family's loss. it seems as though he was really close to his brother so this must be truly awful for him. regardless of his brother's lifestyle, nobody deserves this to happen to them or their family. i hope the gordon-levitts get all the support they need in this horrible time. joseph seems like a strong man with a good balanced head on his shoulders, so i hope this doesn't set him back for too long. he has a very bright future ahead of him.

    HAHAH THIS IS AWESOME! I love when drugs users get owned to death. It is weakness being purged from the gene pool. Screw that loser.

    Re: DickDickerson1234 – you're a deeply disrespectful human being and i hope your children or anyone else in your family never lose their life in this way, because you”re clearly a weak person who makes themselves feel strong by belittling others. you think you have the answers, but i guarantee you wouldn't know the first thing to do if this happened to your family. absolutely pathetic, but just another indication of the selfish, judgemental nature of this generation.

    Re: amandaloveperez – Why is it tacky to speak so bluntly of a 36 year old addict? I rather think it's tacky that he was an addict and had this teenage-like irresponsible lifestyle at 36 years old!! That's what I think is tacky. But, that's just me.

    Re: amycakes86 – So you don't think it's deeply disrespectful what Dan did to his own body? You don't think it's deeply disrespectful what Dan did to his family by being what he was? You don't think it's deeply disrespectful how Dan supported the drug trade by using drugs? Dan lived his life in a very selfish way. Don't you realize that? You obviously don't have the answers either sweetie.

    It's not so fantastic when neighbors with an axe to grind and a desire for 15 minutes of fame get to talk to credible sources like radar.com. it's even less so when sites like this perpetuate the unsubstantiated rumors by publishing them under the guise of sympathy. if you really had any for dan or his family you'd wait until the facts were out or the family made a statement.

    Did you know Dan? Do you know his family? Do you know how credible this neighbor is?

    Re: ImOldGreg – you just get points for an awesome username

    if he was not JGL's brother no one on here would have sympathy for him

  14. 14

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl – i don't think anyone who knew him cared his brother was famous. his friends loved him because he was awesome. even having only known him for a short time, the awesomeness and positivity he emanated was really astounding.

  15. 15

    this is so sad! from what I've known about Dan, he lived a great and creative life, helping many people. How would the neighbor know if he was surrounded by needles?? i call bullshit… and seriously the people assuming he was an addict because some neighbor looking for their 15 mins said he died surrounded by needles are morons. remember Karma is a bitch you shouldn't talk so bad about people you don't know anything about… get a life

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirlRe: My black circumcised baby! – since you're throwing around questions of what is disrespectful…don't you think it's pretty dis…respectful to assume so much about someone you never knew beyond this one small blurb on such a irreputable gossip website? None of us have the answers not to what happened to this man, not to why he may or may not have been using. And if he was, well, drugs are a way of escaping to most people that do use. Usually to escape some kind of pain you or I or anybody else would never wish to feel. It helps nothing by deriding him for something he possibly struggled deeply with.

    You know people talk so much shit about people who use drugs, and yeah it's a bad decision but it really does take over your life. It is hard to quit and stay sober. Alot of you wouldn't know that first hand.

    Re: My black circumcised baby! – first of all, don't call me sweetie. it's unbecoming. secondly, its absolutely none of your business whatsoever how he died. whether he was an addict or a clean living, teetotal buddhist it matters not. the crux of the matter is that a family have lost a son/brother and friend and its not our business to judge what kind of person he may or may not have been due to hearsay. the least we can do is show our support and respect. his family didn't make his decision to take drugs, so who are you to disrespect them for it? you are an absolute cretin.

  19. 19

    prayers goinng out to his family. regardless of his faults and flaws, he was way too young, and i'm sure he will be missed

    Another death! R.I.P. =[
