YOUTUBER Kevin Samuels reportedly spent his last night with Nurse Ortencia Alcantara before he tragically died the next day.
The controversial YouTube star and relationship guru died on May 6 after reportedly complaining of chest pains and collapsing on Alcantara. He died the following day.
Samuels, 56, has been married twice and rumors circulated online that he was in a relationship with influencer Brittany Renner after the two were spotted together.
Although he doled out love advice online, very little is known about Samuel’s personal life as he tended not to share family pictures online.
Samuel’s mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, NBC News confirmed his death but declined to release details of what had happened, saying she learned of her son’s death from social media.
“It was a terrible thing for social media to post. I didn’t even know. I wasn’t even notified,” she told NBC in a call on Friday.
“All I do is ask people to pray for us.”
