Sam Sarpong, host of MTV’s Yo Momma, dies at 40.

Pasadena law enforcement and fire officials responded to calls of a man on a bridge, and family members called to the scene provided “background regarding his emotional state,” police told People. “Tragically, after approximately seven hours of communication, the male jumped from the bridge,” the police statement reads. “The family appreciates the thoughts prayers and other expressions of sympathy, and request their privacy be respected at this extremely difficult time,” reads a statement from Sarpong’s rep. The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner completed postmortem testing Wednesday, and a determination of a cause of death has been deferred pending more investigation, a spokesperson tells EW. He acted and modeled, including a six-year stint as the face of Tommy Hilfiger, before taking up Yo Momma co-host duties alongside Wilmer Valderrama in 2006.

Sarpong appeared in two episodes of Bones last season and is set to appear in an episode of FX’s American Crime Story next year. “Sam was a friend and a longtime client,” his agent J.D.
