Christina Applegate’s boyfriend Lee Grivas was found dead in his Hollywood apartment on July 1st by a neighbor. Applegate and Grivas had dated on and off for several years. They had been together this time since April.
“Applegate and Grivas, a 26-year-old skateboarder and photographer, had a rocky on-again, off-again relationship due to his continual battle with drugs and alcohol,” according to the Enquirer. “But the couple had decided to give it one last shot this past April when Grivas made another attempt at getting clean.”
Apparently, Grivas had a history of drug problems dating back to his teens. Applegate broke up with him a number of times because of his struggles with getting clean.
Applegate is extremely saddened and had this to say to US Magazine.
“I am profoundly saddened,” Applegate said in a statement to Usmagazine.com. “Lee was an incredible human being who was an extremely important and beautiful part of my life.
Christina rose to fame as the buxom, blonde teen on ‘Married With Children.’ Her career has caught a second wind last year as the star of ‘Samantha Who.’
This is another sad blow to Christina. She has had a successful but rough life of up and downs. Our prayers are thoughts are with her during this hard time.
