June Sarpong’s model brother Sam jumps to his death from a bridge.

The 40-year-old lived in Pasadena, California, and died after falling from a bridge on Thursday. The case is being investigated as a possible suicide, Los Angeles County coroner’s office said, but added that the official cause of death will not be known until the results of toxicology results come through. Police in Pasadena spent seven hours attempting to talk the 40-year-old star down from the ledge of the bridge, and his death is being treated as an attempted suicide.

The British born actor and television personality moved to the US and forged a succesful career as catwalk model, working for Tommy Hilfiger, Gucci and Versace and became Louis Vuitton’s first black male model. “The family appreciates the thoughts prayers and other expressions of sympathy, and request their privacy be respected at this extremely difficult time.” Paying tribute to Mr Sarpong on Instagram, his Yo Momma co-star Wilder Valderrama said: “I am so sad and so confused. Sam did it all, believed in dreaming bigger than anyone around him… We made memories together that will last us forever, thank you for sharing your talent with me and the world… Find your peace my brother! “And to everyone in a dark place… PLEASE, please talk to someone… Anyone… Trust me that we WILL listen.

My prayers and heart are with family and friends that were blessed to know his beautiful soul.” Earlier this year Sam posted a picture of himself with June, a panellist on ITV’s Loose Women who recently appeared as part of the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, which he captioned: “with my #Supastar sis June”.
