Bodybuilder Rich Piana has died after being put on life support.
A few days ago, we announced that controversial body builder Rich Piana was taken to the hospital after collapsing and hitting his head.
Shortly after being taken to the hospital, authorities found 20 bottles of steroids in his home.
After being taken to the emergency room, he was placed in a medically induced coma.
Earlier today, Pina’s wife Sara Pina confirmed his death on Facebook saying, “I’m in tears writing this that @1dayumay has just passed away. I can barely believe this… I am so saddened & heartbroken that he didn’t make it.”
Her long post was a memory of what they shared in their marriage. She also thanked him for their union.
“I just want to say THANK YOU Rich for teaching me so much about life, whether it was the easy or the hard way,” she added.
“We had our ups and downs but we sure had an awesome time in each other’s presence along with us fighting through some dark times together. You truly touched many people’s heart and helped so many!!! It inspired me in many ways to see the huge impact you had on people all over the world.”
Piana was open about his 27-year history of admitted steroid use. However, he always said he did not recommend it to his followers.
While there are more details to come, we will continue to keep you updated.
We send out love and thoughts to his family during this hard time.
