Cooper Noriega, a TikTok star with more than 1.7 million followers on the app, has died aged 19.
He was found dead in Burbank, Calif., in the early hours of Thursday morning, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
The cause of his death has not been announced and the case is still under investigation.
Tributes were paid to the teenager in the comments of his latest TikTok posts.
Noriega had made several videos about his mental health and addiction issues.
Last Sunday, he announced he was creating a group for people to talk about their mental health experiences on the Discord messaging platform.
He said: “I just created a discord server strictly for sanity because I love you guys how much I fight myself. I want you not to be alone and to feel safe.”
