Nick Cordero Passes Away At 41 After Long Battle With The Coronavirus

Nick Cordero has reportedly died from complications of the coronavirus

Nick Cordero has reportedly passed away after months spent battling the coronavirus at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. He was 41 years old.

The Broadway star valiantly lasted more than 90 days fighting the COVID-19 virus, virtually all of them having been spent in the intensive care unit. He had previously been in a coma for part of the fight, and doctors were at one point forced to amputate one of his legs, as well. Now, at the very least, thank goodness the pain of the last few months is no more, though that may be of little condolence to his loved ones suffering his passing now.

Cordero was a longtime Broadway actor, having starred in shows such as A Bronx Tale and Bullets Over Broadway, among others in New York’s iconic theater scene. His wife, fitness trainer Amanda Kloots, had waged a very vocal campaign on Instagram to keep Nick’s fight for his life front and center over the last few months, as well. Described by all as “a beloved, great guy,” the actor had an extraordinary show of support as he battled the coronavirus.

Tommy Mottola, the record executive and one of the producers of A Bronx Tale, was one of the first ones to confirm the death, which apparently occurred at around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday morning in Los Angeles. Mottola later deleted his tweet about Cordero’s passing.

Kloots herself then confirmed her husband’s death with a sad, heartbreaking Instagram post, as well:


News of the popular actor’s death was first reported by Showbiz 411. He is survived by Amanda and the couple’s 1-year-old son, Elvis. Our thoughts are with them right now as they must cope with this unimaginably scary, difficult, and terrible event. Ugh…

So, so sad.

Rest in Peace, Nick.
