Ava Louise, who was Ethan’s best friend, wrote on Twitter that the makeup artist was allegedly struggling with addiction recently. It’s not clear exactly how that “drug-induced mania,” as she referenced it, may have manifested itself — or whether it led to Ethan’s death — but Ava Louise shared more about her regrets in not stepping in further in a series of messages posted on Saturday about the entire ordeal (below):

So sad…

More from Ava Louise, too (below) where she claims “2 percs killed my best friend,” an apparent reference to overdosing on the prescription percocet, a painkiller:

So touching…

It’s so tragic to see a 17-year-old pass away — especially from a reported overdose, as has been claimed as the cause of death here. It’s doubly tragic in a situation like Peters’, as he was truly an up-and-coming star in the beauty community online, settling into his career and quickly gaining traction with fans and followers.

He had more than half a million followers at the time of his death this weekend, and his tutorials, makeup videos, and fashion shoots were quickly spreading before the tragedy. Back in March, Peters had gotten candid on his own IG account about the stress and anxiety he felt in creating content and remaining fresh and on the cutting edge for his fans in a remarkably heartfelt, open message to followers:


Now, our hearts are with his family, friends, and loved ones as they mourn his sudden, unexpected passing. Such a sad, tragic situation all around.

Rest In Peace.
