BREAKING: YouTuber Kevin Samuels’ Mother CONFIRMS He Passed Away, Says She Found Out Via Social Media


Rumors about the death of controversial YouTuberKevin Samuels had social media in a frenzy yesterday and well into the night. Today, his mother confirms he did, in fact, pass away. She says she found out about his death via social media. Tragic. More inside…


Since yesterday, there has been speculation that controversial YouTuber Kevin Samuelspassed away. There were several unconfirmed rumors, based on an alleged transcript from an alleged 9-1-1 call, that he died from a heart attack. While his official cause of death is unknown at this time, Kevin’s mother has confirmed he did, indeed, pass away.  Industry insiders and a close frined of Kevin, Anton Daniels, also confirmed the news.



According to NBC News, his mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, confirmed the divorced dating advisor died, but she declined to release details about what happened. Sadly, she revealed she learned of her son's death via social media.

”That was a terrible thing for social media to put that out. I didn't even know. I hadn't even been notified," she said in a phone call with NBC News on Friday. "All I'm doing is requesting that people pray for us."

The Atlanta Police Department revealed officers responded to an apartment Thursday morning "regarding a person injured." By the time police arrived, first responders were performing CPR on an unresponsive man later identified as Samuels.

According to the police report, Kevin was entertaining a woman named Ortencia Alcantara (who identified herself as a nurse) whom he met that night. She spent the night at his apartment. Thursday morning, Kevin began complaining about chest pain before falling on top of her, so she called 911.



He was reportedly taken to Piedmont Hospital. When contacted, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said it could not confirm or deny any information. His cause of death still has not been revealed.

A Twitter user shared Kevin revealed he battled Stage 3 Hodgkin Lymphoma in college, which reportedly raises your risk of dying from a heart attack in later years:


A close friend of Kevin’s also confirmed the news of his death:



With over 1 million Instagram followers and 1.4 million YouTube subscribers, his controversial attacks on Black women often spark outrage. The self-proclaimed “professional image consultant” gained popularity at the expense of black women as he often times would humiliate and insult black women when they joined his live sessions.

Not only that, he often times talked down on men like Future - men who procreate and spread their seed with several different women. While he condemns that behavior, in the same breath he blames black women for choosing to have children with men like that. He was highly criticized for the blame and energy never being equal, though.

What’s interesting is that Kevin (who considered himself a high value man) was with a nurse. He very recently preached to his followers that high value men should stay away from women of certain professions, including nurses, and should never marry one.

Some of his controversial views would rile folks up on social media, sparking heated discussions between men and woman. After learning that Kevin may have died, some people rejoiced, while others condemned them for being happy about his death.

















Our condolences go out to the family.
