Drake Bell was upset after he found out Josh Peck had a wedding and didn’t invite him. But, those feelings were only minimal compared to the heartbreak he endured when news broke that his ex-girlfriend and YouTube personality Stevie Ryan had passed away. The Drake and Josh star dated Stevie for a year from 2005 to 2006.
Stevie was found in her apartment in Los Angeles, California and it has since been determined that her death was a suicide. Having a large online presence, Stevie recently did a podcast all about depression. Not only that but she also questioned whether or not the death of her grandfather would send her spiraling into a deeper depression of her own.
She posted a photo of her grandfather with the message, “The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams. I’ll miss you everyday, forever. I love you my Pa.”
Drake and Stevie were super close while they were dating but we’re not exactly sure what kind of relationship they had at the point of her death. However, clearly, he was very distraught by the whole thing.
The Nickelodeon star posted a photo of he and Stevie from back in the day and said, “No no no!!!! I can NOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!!! Please wake me from this nightmare @StevieRyan I loved you and will forever miss you!”
He also retweeted a video of celebrity gossip writer Perez Hilton doing a video with Stevie as her YouTube personality, Little Loca, back in 2007.
