Drake Bell mourns the death of ex-girlfriend Stevie Ryan: “My heart is crushed”

Former Drake and Josh actor Drake Bell has publically addressed his grief for his ex-girlfriend Stevie Ryan, who is believed to have committed suicide on July 1.

“No no no!!!! I can NOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!!! Please wake me from this nightmare @StevieRyan I loved you and will forever miss you!” the 31-year-old actor, who dated Stevie between 2005 and 2006, wrote on his Twitter page.

“This is too much. My heart is crushed. @StevieRyan I love you and miss you…” he later added.

The 33-year-old actress and YouTube star reportedly committed suicide just days after the death of her grandfather.

She spoke candidly about her grandfather’s passing in last week’s episode of Mentally Ch(ill) – the podcast that iTunes states is about depression – which she co-hosts.

“I’m just worried that this is going to send me into a deeper depression,” she said in the podcast, referencing her grandfather’s death.

“The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams,” she also wrote on Twitter.

“I’ll miss you everyday, forever. I love you my Pa.”

Our thoughts go out to all her family and friends during this difficult time.
