Authorities fear WWE legend Chyna’s death may have been a result of a prescription overdose. The 45-year-old wrestling legend had a prior history of addiction issues. She famously battled those addictions on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew back in 2008. Sh was also seen drinking heavily on The Surreal Life.
“I am very sad for Joanie and her loved ones, but I am also terribly angry because I suspect addiction may have taken another life,” Dr Drew says.”
Chyna was found unresponsive in her Redondo Beach apartment by a close friend who hadn’t heard from her in a few days.
“Evidently either a friend or someone close to her hadn’t talked to her since Sunday and they went over there and went in and found her deceased or unresponsive,” Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter says. “Paramedics were called and she was pronounced at the scene.”
The exact time of death has yet to be determined. Investigators believe she might have died sometime on Monday, as Chyna’s social media account shows activity as recently as Monday morning.
