Ryan Breaux, the 18-year-old brother of musician Frank Ocean, died in a car accident on Sunday morning (2 August) in Westlake Village, California.
The two occupants, Ryan Breaux and his friend Ezekial "Zeek" Bishop, were pronounced dead at the scene after the car hit a tree.
Although the coroner’s office is yet to officially confirm the identity of the crash victims, many of Breaux's friends have been paying tribute to the 18-year-old on social media, including Paris Brosnan, the son of former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan.
To my brother, who was talented beyond belief, possessed a heart of gold, had an energy that was infectious, a smile & laugh that lifted everyone’s spirit, and was a loyal and authentic friend to anyone he knew. You were just getting started and ready to show the world who you were. You were a leader and you had a whole army of loyal soldiers behind you. Thank you for being there for me when I needed you most, thank you for all the wild nights, thank you for your music and all the late night studio sessions with Fray, thank you for blessing us ALL with your presence on this earth. I will carry you in my heart always. Until I see you again brother. Ryan Breaux forever & Zeek Bishop forever.
Breaux made an appearance on Ocean's Blonde track "Futura Free".
