Nate Estimada's death has been ruled a suicide, TMZ reports. The Men of the Strip star died at the age of 24 earlier this week.
"The cast and management of Men of the Strip thank you for your heartfelt condolences and expressions of love and support," a rep for the show said in a statement to TMZ. Circumstances surrounding his death have yet to be released.
Estimada was a part of the dancer-stripper revue Men of the Strip in Las Vegas, which was created by 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons. Earlier this month, he and the rest of his co-workers appeared in a two-hour reality movie event on the E! network.
On Friday, Timmons wrote a heartfelt message to his late friend via Instagram. "R.I.P. @midknightcowboy Nate you are incredible. The job of putting something together like @menofthestrip is a tough one. Juggling personalities, and making sure everyone is happy. You are one of the easiest people to work with that I've ever encountered," the former boy bander wrote.
"You never complained, looked incredible like an Adonis, inspired, lead, and were a consummate professional. People like you drive me to keep pressing forward. #inspired Thanks for helping me realize a dream," Timmons continued. "Yeah, you're the Midnite Cowboy #fingerbang, but you're also my friend, whom I love as Nate Estimada. Enjoy the party up there. We'll all be there right with you one day, and rest assured, they're gonna be in for one hell of a performance."
