Sharing a post on Facebook, Nev said: “Some people are just too fragile and beautiful for this world. So sad to hear about the passing of Ashley Sawyer today.

Her and Mike were both such amazing people who struggled through so much. Their lives were short but filled with courage and love. I like to think they are together now where nothing can hurt them. Sending love to them and their families.”

Max shared his own condolences on Instagram with a photo of himself with Ashley:

MTV confirmed the sad news in a statement earlier in the day, announcing: “MTV is deeply saddened to learn that Ashley Sawyer has passed away. Our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.”

Ashley most recently appeared on a ‘Catfish’ catch-up episode last year where she revealed that she had been living in a sober facility after struggling with drug addiction.

We send our condolences to their families at this painful time.
