Jason Davis, the oil heir who voiced Mikey Blumberg on Disney’s Recess, has died at age 35. While his cause of death has not yet been confirmed, a source told RadarOnline.com the troubled billionaire suffered a drug overdose.
Jason — nicknamed “Gummi Bear” — was reportedly found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home this weekend. For years prior to his death, he struggled with addiction and even appeared on the fourth season of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2010 to deal with his addiction to heroin, OxyContin and Xanax. On the reunion show, Jason admitted he relapsed twice, but was finally sober. Still, he was arrested in January 2011 for drug possession and was later charged with felony possession and being under the influence of narcotics.
“The video was taken on Tuesday night after a vein in his foot exploded and he was trying to wrap it up in a bandage,” an insider said. “His foot is black and blue and it’s disgusting. There was blood everywhere and Jason’s so out of it and lazy that the blood stains are still all over his room and on the sheets. He hasn’t cleaned any of it up.”
In July 2018, Radar reported Jason hit rock bottom. At the time, he was photographed hanging out at a seedy Los Angeles motel with red marks on his arms and sores and bruises all over his body. He wore the same shorts, flip flops and sweatshirt for five days straight, according to an eyewitness, and was even kicked out of the motel with a group of people after allegedly leaving their room littered with hypodermic needles.
