‘Zombie Boy’ Rick Genest Has Committed Suicide At The Age Of 32



Rick Genest shot to viral fame a few years ago after he starred in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way video and everyone was fascinated by his bizarre facial tattoos that kinda made him look like a zombie or a skull or something.

He hasn’t exactly been super famous in the past couple of years but I imagine he was just sticking to modelling and acting, but the sad news has arrived today that he has committed suicide at the relatively young age of 32. He was discovered by police in his Montreal apartment in Plateau-Mont-Royal Apparently he struggled with mental health issues for the majority of his life.

Lady Gaga tweeted the following:

Very sad. Let’s hope that his death isn’t in vain and does help to get this message across to other people suffering. RIP Zombie Boy.
