Stephen Gately dies in Majorca

 

Stephen Gately, member of the recently reformed Irish boyband Boyzone, died this weekend while holidaying in Majorca.

The 33-year-old singer and actor was found dead on Saturday afternoon in his home in the holiday destination. Police investigating the sudden death of the Irish star have said there are “no signs of suspicious circumstances.”

It has been claimed in The Sun that he spent up to 8 hours on a drinking binge while spending time away from the UK with his partner, Andrew Cowles. So far, it has been reported that he slept on the sofa in their home in Port d’Andratx after the couple met a 25-year-old Bulgarian man, who allegedly came back with them. When Cowles got up the following afternoon, he found his partner dead. The rumours so far are that he choked on his own vomit in his sleep.

His band mates and close friends, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Mikey Graham and Keith Duffy, flew out to Majorca as soon as they heard the sad news on Sunday. Boyzone manager Louis Walsh failed to appear on Sunday night’s X Factor, and he was said to be "very shocked and exceptionally upset".

  9. It makes me sad that because of your personal life, people are looking for something bad to say about you and the circumstances of your death. When are the public going to allow you to RIP? Be with the Angels.

  10. you know what I hate? People like Amy Winehouse – massive drug abuser. Kerry Katona – the same but in front of kids. Stephen Gately – upstanding citizen of this horrible country of ours, hard workin role model that have never let us all down. And they die. Very sad.

  11. Following on from Mike, you know what I hate? The fact that only 18 people have so far commented on what is a very sad story and yet 215 comments on Cheryl Cole miming on X Factor! My thoughts are with his family, friends and the Boyz.
