His cause of death is yet to be determined pending toxicology, though no foul play is suspected, according to reports.

Aktari appeared on the Style Network show from seasons two to four, shown as Blois's boyfriend, though they were not together at the time of his death.

She worked in a salon with one of his exes, and the tension between the two women was a big plotline on the show.

Since the sad news broke, Blois has paid tribute to Aktari, writing on an Instagram collage of the pair: "My heart has never hurt this hard.

"I wouldn't trade those three years we spent together for the world. You showed me never ending love and loyalty. You accepted me as my crazy goofy self and loved it.

"You looked at me the way no one ever has. You had the most wonderful heart. I wish I made more of an attempt to get together to catch up when you asked. I'll always love you Milad."

In another post, she added: "Our time here is so valuable and limited. If there is someone who has a part of your heart, no matter what has transpired in the past, no matter what the situation might be..LET THEM KNOW how much they mean to you. Milad takes a piece of my heart with him."
