Former child star Cameron Boyce has died. His family confirmed the Disney star died in his sleep on Saturday after suffering a seizure. He was 20.

A spokesperson for the family said his seizure was the result of an "ongoing medical condition" for which he was being treated. The spokesperson did not disclose the medical condition.

"It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron... The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him," the family's statement read.

"We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother," it added.

Cameron was best known for his roles as the freckle-faced kid in Disney Channel's Descendants and the Grown Ups movies with Adam Sandler.

He shot to fame in the Disney Channel TV show Jessie, starring as Luke Ross, alongside Debby Ryan (who played Jessie Prescott).

Cameron was best known for his role in the Disney Channel TV movie franchise Descendants - in which he played Carlos, the son of Cruella De Vil.

The third Descendants movie, directed by Kenny Ortega, is due to be released in August.

A spokesman for the Disney Channel offered their condolences to Cameron's family, and paid tribute to the "incredibly talented performer".

"From a young age, Cameron Boyce dreamed of sharing his extraordinary artistic talents with the world... He was an incredibly talented performer, a remarkably caring and thoughtful person and, above all else, he was a loving and dedicated son, brother, grandson and friend. He will be dearly missed."

Fans of the young star poured out their grief in millions of posts on social media sites. His last post on Instagram, dated July 5, shows a B&W portrait taken from iD magazine's Superstar Issue, Winter 2018. That post garnered over 3 million views and nearly 800,000 comments in 24 hours.

  • T Willis

    OT: Keke is pregnant wit her 9th child ??

  • Miss Thang



    OT: Can we get a medical minute of Apryl Jones' "fat p*$sy" rant from Instagram today, cause I need to know if she's on crack or not... for real.


    Correction: TENTH. lmao

  • Miss Thang

    She and Michael got back together?

  • Kanyade

    whet? her womb is skrong and firtle. bless, if true.


    Also, all these Disney stars are signed away into Satanism by their parents. They have an obligation until the kid is old enough to do it on their own. Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus... they all went through it. And no, the kids can't say no. I don't believe he died in a seizure. I think it was time to make that choice, and his parents realized he was better off dead than being forced to do the stuff his other child stars were. Call me whatever you want. I'm awake.


    Satanism? Lol oh god black folks..??

  • @yeuphonic

    Black folks? Lol oh god idiots that don’t know this is a long created conspiracy by anti occultists.

  • KarmaBackAround

    ????Wheeew is teeewww early for that..let that child rest

  • Dowoop

    Maybe you should go back to sleep and get some rest then.

  • free

    i was gonna tell my child but i think D3 comes out soon so i'm sure he filmed for that. i just decided to not say anything.

  • Sha

    No, she remarried.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    So it wasn’t due to a heroin overdose? Or complications from an ongoing battle with drugs? Everytime I hear of sudden death, it’s the first thing that comes to mind.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    The ignorance!

  • AphroKween

    Really??? SMH.............

  • Phillybruh

    It's nothing wrong with going to see someone and talk it out.

  • chaisun

    Satanism is alive and kicking though. ?????

  • Pamela

    Have you taken your meds today? The paranoia is off the charts.

  • AphroKween

    This is some ones child, sometimes its best to keep your thoughts to yourself. Do you have any children? Yeah its a blog but damn some of you so called adults have ZERO empathy and sympathy.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Let’s use proper terms here. Devil worshippers are those that believe in the existence of an actual Satan and worship him-they are the flip side of christians. Satanism is practiced by the members of The Church of Satan which was formed by Atheists who do not believe in an actual satan or god. Satan is used as a term to to mean “free will”.

  • AphroKween

    Some of us with younger kids that watch Disney know of him, his always looked that way.

  • SpillyNillie young...RIP

  • Roderick2011


  • Kimocha
  • smartchickfl

    He's also half black...that part surprised me.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I'm awake.
    Maybe you still need a nap tho.

  • Phillybruh

    My son told me that this morning. I guess Paris and nem could be

  • Ghetto Real Name

    If too young, then I agree. So sad man. Our two are a teen and a tween so they were going to see it anyways on these internets sadly. I think the Disney channel had up a "In memory of Cameron Boyce, RIP" slot in between shows yesterday too.

  • Dowoop


  • wonderwoman

    Just so sad, and so young. RIP young man. Praying for his family.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Its true. she confirmed at Essence Festival over the weekend. A Baby Bump and all

  • Phillybruh

    That's how my son found out then he darted up the steps to tell his brother Cameron died, then they started making calls. From 4-11 Disney was all they watched.

  • smartchickfl

    Let Paris tell it...?

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    14 year old in middle school had epilepsy and died in his sleep from a seizure. It happens.

  • xxxgracious

    I'll never forget she was on TV saying she is a black woman. I fell out my seat lol.

  • Miss Thang

    Damn I’m late. Some girls live fast af.

  • T Willis

    She remarried last year lol


    Just like Christianity and Buddhism

  • R in NYC



    Ya'll can stay mad. I said what I said.

  • The Vet

    He had epilepsy. He suffered from seizures.

  • kennedy220

    sooooooo it isn't possible that he can't just get sick, or have a health problem from basic health science? die by accident? etc.

  • Yup, I said it

    Life is so precious. On a sice note, he reminds me of this girl that went to my school. She was h
    1/2 Mexican and 1/2 Irish. She looked just like that freckles and all. What a combination.

  • KcoolMuziq

    "ongoing medical condition"

    The white version on drug use.. Goodbye

  • CardiB’sAbs

    It’s a sad view to have. Drugs have been taking folks out left and right.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    So so sad! He is so young and handsome! My kids love him! Rest in peace!

  • samuel severino

    I don’t believe he died from a seizure either. Especially now that rumors are he was getting ready to name a famous director that had been molesting him and others for years.

  • leapyearpisces

    I hate to say it, I think it was drugs as well. I think EVERYTHING stated publicly is true.. but I think they are leaving out the fact that the seizure was EXACERBATED by drugs. My stepson (the twins older brother ) has had MAJOR epileptic seizures since he was a toddler, and he still chugging along. Matter of fact, his seizures are so frequent and bad that it was forbidden for him to live alone, but of course the older he got (I think he is 28 now) he wanted to live alone and be independent so the doctors implanted some type of instrument that is in his shoulder blade or side, where when he feels a seizure coming on (which epileptics will tell they can feel them coming) he presses the piece and it sends some type of signal somewhere to alert medical emergency that he is having one and someone comes to make sure he is okay.

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    the young man was epileptic....

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    they was saying it was epilepsy

  • Phillybruh

    Or it could be just what the family said a seizure. Truth is with epilepsy even on medication you just don't know when your going to have one.

  • Renee26

    RIP young man


    My daughter use to watch Jesse everyday. He was one of her favorite characters, and I liked him too! What a very talented nice looking young man, Gone to soon! Rip

  • Harley

    He was mixed. His father is a very black man and his grandmother was a part of the Clinton 13 during the civil rights movement

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    RIP he was a hansome fella. He looks like he can be the singer bilal son

  • The Chosen One

    Amen. Death doesn't discriminate.

  • The Chosen One

    Really, I didn't know that.

  • The Chosen One

    Lmfao. Just by the looks of them, I doubt it. I loved MJ's music, but I don't think he liked vagina.

  • The Chosen One

    I hope you are joking

  • Trace da Ace

    aww damn...I was just watching Grown Ups this weekend.....damn shame..RIP.

  • bb1812

    So sad, way too young. RIP, Cam ??

  • AphroKween

    No one's mad, you come accross as lacking sensitivity and basic human decency. Sometimes its best to keep your thoughts to yourself, especially you've never seen this kid on no ones blog about any negativity. Oh and change your name sweetie!

  • Shira Harding-James

    My kids were saddened by this ?

  • Shira Harding-James

    He wasn’t on drugs.....and he is black dude


    Glad somebody else is awake ?

  • smartchickfl

    Somebody needs to tell those babies the truth.

  • smartchickfl

    I just found out after he died and also that he sang heart aches for his parents.

  • Rayscoty

    You did the autopsy? If not.. Stop REPLYING without facts. Thanks and BYE

  • Indies beauty

    Aww. I use to watch his show with my lil sis. R.I.P.

    Also fun fact: His grandpa is black

  • Lady” Youngblood

    Aww me and my kids are so saddened by this.

  • Indies beauty

    Lol yes. I need the technical term. And I think she was on molly.

  • Chicagowise

    He reminds me of my younger self. I have no idea who he is, but whenever a young person with potential dies, it is always a sad occasion.

  • abby500

    I memba him from Jesse. He was cute

  • Shira Harding-James

    Is that not what you just did
    Commented with opinion, no facts?
    No thank you and goodbye

  • PrettyNetty28

    I still watch Hey Jessie.. even though my son is now 14. RIP?

  • PrettyNetty28

    He surely is. ??

  • PrettyNetty28

    Like 4 real. F**k!

  • dontgetblocked

    Drugs are killing our youth!

  • Rmicu

    Agree. I have a family member who was told straight up by the Neurologist: stop the pills/ drugs and syrup and the seizures will stop.
    He's the same age as this young man. Doctor couldn't tell parents thedrug screen or any medical info because he is adult. He had to agree to have his parents come in the room when he was the Neurologist.
    My family member kept denying drug use until after his 3rd ER visit for a seizure.

    Lil Wayne likely has same " medical condition".
    Mixing syrup and pills causes seizures, especially in otherwise healthy young people. Dehydration is another diagnosis drug users hide behind.

  • KLB

    It wasn't drugs. He was an epileptic and had a seizure in his sleep and died. My Aunt died at 24 years old after having a seizure in her sleep. It's called SUDEP, it's like SIDS, where an otherwise healthy baby dies in their sleep, but in this case it's a seizure in their sleep and they pass away.

  • The Chosen One

    You told me something new today.

  • parisjok

    had no idea he was not white

  • Jayde da Blade

    ?? my babies watch him. My daughter was aware and saddened she is 12.
    Condolences are in order??

  • Chicagowise

    No wonder he reminds me of myself. I knew I saw some black DNA in there.

  • Indies beauty

    That info was new to me but I always wondered, I thought he was just *cultured* lol but cool

  • The Chosen One

    Wow. Death doesn't discriminate.

  • parisjok

    where was the black gene from black dad and black grand mom? thought he was white especially with all those beautiful freakles. weird
