According to an exclusive report from TMZ, Clark Gable’s grandson has died in Texas at the age of 30.
The report cites family sources who say his fiancee found him unresponsive in bed on Friday morning.
Clark Gable III followed in his famous grandfather’s footsteps by pursuing a career in entertainment. He was reportedly in Dallas for a film shoot at the time of his death.
Notable credits include hosting the television series “Cheaters” during its 13th and 14th seasons.
There was no immediate cause of death reported and sources said that he did not have any known prior medical issues.
Gable was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at an area hospital, according to the report.
He is survived by a daughter, Shore, parents John Clark Gable and Tracy Yarro, and a sister, Kayley.
In addition to his on-camera roles, he has gained media attention for a variety of other reasons.
He was stabbed in the torso by an individual at a party in Los Angeles a decade ago.
Two years later, he pleaded guilty to charges related to pointing a laser light at a Los Angeles Police Department helicopter. Gable was sentenced to 10 days behind bars for that count.
According to Fox News, his sister confirmed her family’s loss in a Facebook post on Friday.
“My brother was found unresponsive this morning by his fiancé and didn’t wake up,” she wrote. “I LOVE YOU CLARKIE I’m so sorry we couldn’t save you my heart is broken and shattered RIP.”
His mother offered a tribute to her son in an Instagram post, which can be seen below. In the 2017 photo, Gable can been seen holding newborn Shore LaRae Gable. “It’s is with an extremely heavy heart we say goodbye to my beautiful son Clark. He passed this morning. I will always be next to you my beautiful son,” she writes in the post.
