After Years of Addiction, Former “Bachelorette” Suitor Passes at 31
Austin Resident and former “Bachelorette” Suiter, Michael Nance, has reportedly passed on. Sources say that a specific cause of death has yet to be named, but shortly after his time on the infamous dating show, he revealed had struggled with an addiction to prescription pills, but said that he had been two years’ sober at the time of filming.
A young man of just 31 years-old, Michael was pronounced dead on Monday at an Austin, Texas-area hospital after he was found unresponsive at an undisclosed location about 2 p.m. When asked about his struggles over years of addiction:
“I was addicted to prescription pain medicine. It all starts out fun and then somewhere along the road, it just turned into something else. It’s a vicious cycle and it ate away at me for a long time. I’m almost two years sober, now, and it’s not that easy — you have to completely change your way of living.”
Investigators are performing an autopsy to determine what caused Matthew’s death; results are expected in coming weeks. Sadly, many people with similar backgrounds to Matthew end up falling victim to opioids.
