EXPIRED: 09/16/09 – Filip Nikolic, 35. Look what happens when you’re (formerly) young, good looking and French. This ex-member of French boy-band 2Be3 quit the band to go solo. I guess that can be stressful. And that can cause sleeplessness.
After the band’s breakup in 2001, Nikolic found success performing in several screen and stage productions, including a recurring role as a police lieutenant on the TV series Brigade Navarro, and appeared in the French version of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2006.
According to the first reports the cause of the death, an heart attack due to a combination of pills he used to get to sleep, but insiders say he was an on again / off again heroin user.
Ironically his first hit single was called ‘Partir un jour’ (Gone One Day) and was about living his life knowing that you can be gone tomorrow and never return.
