Report: Frank Ocean’s Younger Brother, Ryan Breaux, Tragically Dies In Car Accident
Ryan Breaux, the younger brother of R&B singer Frank Ocean, has reportedly passed away.
According to multiple reports, Ryan and a friend were in a fiery single-car crash near Thousand Oaks, CA, and were later pronounced dead at the scene by the Ventura Valley Fire Department.
The single-vehicle collision happened just after 1:30 a.m. near Westlake Boulevard and Skelton Canyon Circle. The initial investigation revealed the vehicle was traveling south on Westlake Boulevard when the car appeared to leave the roadway and collide with a tree in the center median.
According to reports “The force of the crash caused the car to rip in half and was found by Ventura County sheriff’s deputies engulfed in flames.”
While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, many have been reaching out to offer their condolences on Ryan's social media pages including comments under one of his most recent Instagram posts, ironically a photo of Ryan in his car.
Someone with the IG username 58robbie commented, “S**t crazy bro, rest easy” with a prayer hands emoji. Username mallorymerk also wrote, “I can’t breathe, I love you so much.” “You will forever be missed ryan. Until next time,” suedebrooks added. “Rest easy my bro, love you,” followed someone with the name alexmidler.
Although his brother is one of the most mysterious megastars in the world, Breaux rarely posted about his brother, instead opting for normal teenager tweets about things like Lil Uzi Vert and hypebeast clothing.
He was famously rendered speechless when he realized his 11-year-old voice appeared at the end of 'Futura Free', the final song on his brother's most recent album (Blonde) back in 2016.
Frank Ocean also wrote the song 'Orion' about his younger brother.
Neither Frank Ocean nor his family has released any official statement at the time of this post, but we will update this story when more information is available.
Our condolences go out to Breaux's family, and the loved ones of all who have been affected by this sudden tragedy.
