The entertainment world has lost a rising star.
Tavita karika, which appeared in the first season of New Zealand The bachelor and Island of the heart, died at the age of 31.
The family of the reality TV personality announced the heartbreaking news earlier this week on the online fundraising site Givealittle.
“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of our friend Tavita Anthony Carica,” the statement said. “On April 29, 2021, Tavita took his last breath and with it our hearts. If you had the pleasure of knowing Tavita, you will understand how difficult it is for his family, friends and all who loved him.”
It is unknown at this time what caused the star’s death.
In addition, the former co-stars of Tavita for both The bachelor and Island of the heart turned to social media to express his condolences.
“I can confirm that Tavita really passed last night around midnight,” Mark Johnson,, Bachelor alum, said the New Zealand-based news agency Things. “I can’t tell you if it was before or after, because it was too emotional and before I knew it was four or five hours.”
