However, it seems that Jamie did not die from an overdose as it was initially thought — rather he passed from a flesh eating disease caused by drug use.
The disease, necrotizing fasciitis, is a bacterial skin infection that can be caused by using dirty needles with IV drug abuse. The coroner reports that the disease can spread quickly and often becomes life threatening.
The 37-year-old was close friends with both Lamar and Khloe Kardashian.
On Tuesday the starlet took to Instagram to share a touching message with her fans:
Life doesn’t get easier but I promise you that life will make you stronger. ├░┼╕ΓÇÖΓÇ╣A photo posted by Khlo├â┬⌐ (@khloekardashian) on Jun 14, 2015 at 11:34pm PDT
Our thoughts are with Jamie’s friends and family during this trying time.
