It is reported that his girlfriend asked hotel staff to check on him. 

While details are still scarce, TMZ does note that there was blood on the bedsheets. 

The family is currently awaiting autopsy results, but his father believes his son suffered a fatal aneurysm. 

Belasco played Charles Whitmore on Let's Stay Together from 2011 to 2014.

The series lasted four seasons with Belasco's Charles playing the contractor and fiance of character Stacey Lawrence, played by Nadine Ellis.

The actor also appeared in a Super Bowl commercial in 2010 alongside Betty White.

“I am gutted by this news,” wrote actress Yvette Nicole Brown on Twitter upon hearing the sad news.

“Bert was my friend! We had JUST talked last week. He was happy and excited about his new project and all the good that was to come. No day is promised. NO DAY.”
