Bert Belasco, known for his role in the BET series Let’s Stay Together, has died. He was 38.

As reported by Fox News, Belasco’s father, Bert Sr., told TMZ that his son was found dead on Sunday in a hotel room in Virginia after staff went to check on him. He was in the middle of quarantining for two weeks leading up to a new movie, according to his dad.

His girlfriend reportedly called the hotel when she had not heard from Belasco.

Bert Sr. thinks his son died of an aneurysm but is waiting on an autopsy to officially announce its findings.

According to the local news outlet, ABC 8 News, the Henrico Police Department responded to a hotel for a medical emergency on Sunday.

“No day is promised,” Brown added. “NO DAY.”

She tweeted, “Heartbroken at the passing of Bert -- a talented, kind young man who I had the pleasuring [sic] of working with numerous times on #LetsStayTogether.Squeeze your loved ones tight!
