Alexis Eddy, a former contestant on the MTV reality show “Are You The One?”, has died at age 23.

A family member tells TMZ that Eddy visited her mother’s house on Wednesday at 11 p.m. and “seemed to be fine.” She was found Thursday morning by a fellow family member, and was believed to still be sober.

She Was Open About Her Struggles With Substance Abuse

A pinned Tweet on Eddy’s Twitter page shows a picture of the reality TV star and her father, and reads, “Guuuuuys look at this pic of me n my daddio finally sober together ??? pic on the right was two years ago… what a difference.” She hashtagged the photo: #RecoveryRocks.

In October, Eddy posted another pic in front of a Community Recovery Center and captioned it, “Recovery at its finest ;) Gr8ful 2 b clean & sober.”

In December, a fan asked Eddy on Twitter if she was sober, and she responded, “I’m clean; drink on occasion.”


She Became Engaged in October

In October 2019, People published an article about Eddy that revealed she was engaged. The outlet reports that Eddy uploaded an Instagram photo with then-fiancé Nate Lee and captioned it, “Went to play in the woods…Walked out engaged.”

The photo has since been removed from Eddy’s Instagram, but still appears on Lee’s Instagram. His slideshow photos post is captioned, “Asked my best friend to spend the rest of her life with me today… She said ‘yee’ #blessed.”

In early January, someone commented on a recent photo of Eddy, “Yesss beautiful brown eyes are back and no more lame fiance I love that for you.” At the time of her passing, Eddy was not following Lee on Instagram. TMZ adds that it “appears the engagement was recently ended.”
On New Year’s Eve, a Twitter also post suggested she was single for the celebration. She wrote, “I’m bringing a mirror with me out tonight so I can kiss myself when the ball drops #2020 got love for ME and ME ONLY.”

Hundreds of fans have fled to Eddy’s Instagram to mourn her loss.
