Let’s Stay Together star Bert Belasco has passed away at the age of 38.
The actor’s father Bert Belasco Sr. confirmed to TMZ that his son’s body was found Nov. 8 inside a hotel room located in Richmond, Virginia.
According to family, Bert was preparing for a new movie role where he had to quarantine at a hotel before coming to set.
