American actress Stevie Ryan has been confirmed dead of a suspected suicide. She was just 33 years old.
The LA coroner’s office website confirmed the Victorville-born star, famed for her viral videos, dies over the weekend.
The Daily Mail is reporting that she left a heartbreaking note remarking about the recent death of her grandfather shortly before her death.
She posted a note on Twitter about the sudden death of her grandfather saying: “The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams.”

Stevie found fame and a huge following for her spot on and always funny parodies of celebrities including Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
Although, she did get a huge backlash for taking on such Hollywood lumineries from their legions of fans and leaned on her grandpa to deal with the haters.
In an earlier interview where she discussed the backlash she received for taking down the sacred cows of Hollywood a few notches saying,
“No matter who you are… You can be the most talented person in the world and you put anything on the Internet and all you’re going to get is hateful responses.”
Ryan continued shining some insight into the backlash she received and why she may have taken this drastic action:
“I didn’t know that at the time. I don’t think anyone knew that yet. I was like, “Oh hell no they didn’t! These b***hes do not know what they just asked for. So then I created Little Loca thinking, “I’m going to hand YouTube its ass right now.” I created Little Loca and thought I’d just do it and freak people out.”
She must have found solace in beating back the haters with her grandfather and that loss, the loss of someone she could trust to talk to, must have hit her harder than anyone realized.
