The Los Angeles Police Department says former MTV star Chris Pearson has died after being stabbed in the early hours of Sunday morning.
His death was the result of someone losing it on him for being loud and disruptive in his apartment complex in the middle of the night ... sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ.
Our sources say the former "Ex on the Beach" star was down in the pool area with his girlfriend, making a lot of noise around 2 AM Sunday. We're told Chris was yelling ... it's unclear at who, but it pissed off the other residents who were trying to sleep.
In a GoFundMe set up for Pearson’s funeral costs, his friends write in part, “The only other thing that Chris loved more than his music was his family and friends. All Chris wanted was to make it far in life to help his family and make them proud. Chris was taken from us way way too soon.”
