Reality-TV star Joey Kovar's family was reportedly in shock after the "Real World" and "Celebrity Rehab" personality was found dead Friday morning at a friend's house in the Chicago area.
"Everyone is in shock right now. He seemed fine, he was happier and he was doing better," David Kovar, Joey's brother, told the Chicago Tribune.
David Kovar also said the family was not suspecting drug use, despite a TMZ report that said they were, combined with the 29-year-old's previous struggles with addiction.
"Everything was going very well," David Kovar told the Tribune. "The very, very last thing that our family is suspecting is drugs." No foul play was suspected either, police said.
