WHAT HE DIED FROM

Trousdale died in a hospital in Burbank, California after suffering from complications from COVID-19. A woman named Jane Gagle reported how the star had died after struggling with an “acute strep infection that shut down his body.”

Gagle works at the Pacific Ballet Dance Theatre, where Trousdale also worked. She also revealed: “Chris was in a coma, on life support when he passed.” In 1999, the singer joined Dream Street which included Jesse McCartney and others.

Even though the band members were all underage, they had all acted on the New York City and Broadway scenes. The self-titled album went gold with songs like “It Happens Every Time” and “I Say Yeah.”

They got to tour with big artists like Britney Spears and Aaron Carter. In 2002, the band fell apart after facing a lawsuit from their parents.
