According to “TMZ,” actor Bert Belasco sadly passed away over the weekend at the age of 38. He died inside a hotel room where he was self-quarantining against the novel coronavirus disease.


This week, “TMZ” learned how Hollywood lost a young star, Bert Belasco, 38, in Richmond, Virginia. Some people might recognize the late actor from BET’s show, “Let’s Stay Together.”

The publication shared that the actor’s death was revealed by his father; Bert Belasco Sr. The late star’s father shared how his body was discovered on Sunday, November 8, 2020.

The actor’s parent said Belasco was found in a hotel room. The star was in the area for a project for a new film that he had a role in but before he could go on set he was asked to self-quarantine against COVID-19 at the hotel.

When his girlfriend couldn’t get a hold of him on the phone, she asked the hotel staff to check on him. That’s when they discovered the Woodland Hills resident with blood on the sheets in his room.


It isn’t yet clear what the cause of his death is and his family is waiting for autopsy results. However, Belasco’s father shared that he believed his son actually suffered a fatal aneurysm.

The late star had managed to have twenty-three acting credits under his belt throughout his short career. He’s appeared in numerous television shows as well but he’s probably most well-known for his role on “Let’s Stay Together.”


The late star starred as Charles Whitmore on the series for 52 episodes of the show, which was shot in Atlanta, starting in 2011 until 2014. He featured on the show alongside actress Nadine Ellis who is a former Pussycat Doll.

Ellis played Dr. Stacey Lawrence on the series and Belasco starred as her fiancé. Some others might recognize the late star from the series’s “Pitch” and “I'm Dying Up Here."


Belasco also had roles in other shows like "Superstore," "American Princess," "The Soul Man," and "The Mick." He also featured on "The Big Show Show," "No Names," “Justified,” “Key and Peele,” and many more others.

The late actor’s death was confirmed on Monday, November 9, 2020, by the Henrico County Police. Detectives are currently working with medical examiners to determine his cause of death.


However, the police shared that the circumstances of the case don’t look suspicious. Belasco has since received some touching tributes on social media from co-star Jackée Harry and his friend Yvette Nicole Brown.

The late actor has joined other stars like the “Monty Python” legend Terry Jones and the spiritual medium Derek Acorah who all died this year. The year has also taken WWE legendary wrestler Rocky Johnson.
