MTV host and Tommy Hilfiger model Sam Sarpong has tragically taken his own life aged just 40.

The British-born star, who co-hosted MTV’s Yo Momma show alongside Wilmer Valderrama, leaped to his death from a bridge.

County of Los Angeles Medical Examiner confirmed the star had passed away yesterday in an apparent suicide attempt, according to US Weekly.

The America-British later branched out into acting where he secured roles in television shows such as Veronica Mars and Bones.

Friends described Sam as being ‘the life of the party’, someone who loved life and would face every day with ‘a smile on his face.’

Sarpong moved to Los Angeles when he was 11 where he became a promising high school basketball star.
When his ambitions of playing professional fizzled out, he turned to acting and modelling where he became the face of Tommy Hilfiger for six years.

He also launched his own clothing line Future Stars, influenced by both British and Californian styles which reflect his dual citizen upbringing.
