Rich Piana Chanel Jansen

Former Mr. California, Rich Piana has died after medics found him unresponsive inside his Florida home earlier this month. He was 46.

Piana suffered a cardiac arrest at home on Monday, Aug. 7, according to published reports.

The popular bodybuilder was transported to a local hospital and placed in a medically induced coma to decrease the swelling on his brain from seizure activity.

Officers who responded to his girlfriend's 911 call found multiple vials of the male hormone Testosterone as well as 20 bottles of anabolic steroid supplements that contain Testosterone and other androgens to build muscle mass quickly.

Police also reportedly found white powder on a table in the home.

It is reported that Piana suffered a cardiac arrest as a result of a drug overdose.

In a video he posted last year, Piana advised his fans to eat more food and avoid steroidal supplements. "Food is where it's at. F-ck the supplements. Don't waste your money. Buy food first," he said.

But he also admitted using steroids to maintain his award winning physique.

"If you have the choice to do steroids or stay natural, stay natural. There's no reason to do steroids, you're only hurting your body and hurting yourself,' Piana said.

'But if you want to become a professional bodybuilder, guess what? You're probably going to have to f***ing do them, you're not going to have a choice. That's the boat I was in.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Every so often, a male family member shows up with a girlfriend saying she is a picky eater. She doesn't eat pork, seafood, beef, hams,yams, potatoes, tomatoes and they be big asf. My daughter be over there saying she eating something F that?

  • Ms.Vanilla

  • Wreckognize Game

  • stav

  • Insane Taco Juice

    He probably makes whoever fry up a 10-pound bag of potatoes at every meal. That's how some of them do.

  • 4RGSpot

    Yes it is.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Steroids kill. 46 is way too young. Hopefully this is a warning to somebody out there.

  • Rayne

    Hell nawl. What's he eating? Fat plants. ???? ????

  • Sid

    I know this is terrible to say but I know his peen was not working. He could no longer produce any testerone to do so. Its so sad he was young. At least he did something he love doing.

  • klwbaby

    I watched a documentary about the evolution of bodybuilders and how it went from having big arms and legs and a tiny waist to looking like a freak. And seeing how much they can push their bodies and be huge and a lot of them readily admitted that they could only obtain that look because of steroids, eating an insane amount of food and constantly exercising.

    I think they lying....we don't know what people are doing behind closed doors...I know people that really live that vegan life....which is mostly PLANT BASED meaning you don't over dose on carbs. (breads, pasta, etc). If you're truly vegan/mostly plant based you should be a normal size for your size and height after a few months or more.

  • Applebootay

    Breads and pastas.....too...veganism is about a mostly plant based diet....there is a wrong way to vegan.

  • Applebootay

  • Kimberly King
