A police source told CBC it was a suicide. However, his family and friends believe his death to have been an accidental fall. Before this accident, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor but later he underwent the surgery with minimal complications.

Rick was featured in Gaga’s Born This Way video in 2011. That’s how they professionally relate. After his death, Gaga expressed her condolences on Twitter, saying the loss was “beyond devastating”.

In her tweet, she wrote, “We have to work harder to change the culture, bring mental health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it.”

Further, in two new tweets, she apologised his family saying, “Out of respect for Rick’s family, Rick & his legacy I apologize if I spoke too soon as there was no witnesses or evidence to support any conclusion for the cause of his death. I in no way meant to draw an unjust conclusion My deepest condolences to his entire family and friends.”
