28-year-old reality TV star, Mike Aktari, who is known for his role in 'Jerseylicious' has died on Monday in his hometown of Westbury on Long Island, with police sources confirming the death to TMZ.
According to Dailymail, no foul play is suspected to the personal trainer's death, however the cause of death has yet to be confirmed, pending the results of toxicology tests.
On the reality show, Jerseylicious, which ran on the now defunct Style Network from 2010 to 2103, Mike was seen as the boyfriend of major character, Olivia Blois.
Make-up artist, Olivia worked at a salon with another of Mike's exes, and tension between the two women was a major plotline.
After learning of Mike's death, Olivia shared a collage of the two friends on instagram, along with a heartfelt tribute.
'My heart has never hurt this hard,' she wrote of her ex. 'I wouldn't trade those three years we spent together for the world. You showed me never ending love and loyalty.
'You accepted me as my crazy goofy self and loved it. You looked at me the way no one ever has. You had the most wonderful heart. I wish I made more of an attempt to get together to catch up when you asked. I'll always love you Milad.'
In a second post, showing the pair on the show, she added: 'One of my favorite photos of Mike and !.'
And Olivia reflected: 'Our time here is so valuable and limited. If there is someone who has a part of your heart, no matter what has transpired in the past, no matter what the situation might be... LET THEM KNOW how much they mean to you. Milad takes a piece of my heart with him.'
