Fans, fellow industry artists, friends and other celebrities have taken to social media to express their heartfelt and gut-wrenching feelings about the unexpected tragedy.

    Freddy E you were the special kind who touched so many people. Artists are usually very sensitive and become artists because they feel things on a deeper level than most…that’s the quality that makes them able to relate to so many people on so many levels. Freddy E’s beautiful spirit was pure and no one should judge him but understand pain and mental illness is real. I love you Freddy E and you will be in my heart forever…God has you now my love in his care and comfort…aaaaannnnnd one.
