[Ed. – Tragic. Prayers needed.]
The son of Fox News host Eric Bolling – who was fired on Friday after claims of sexual harassment — has died.
Eric Chase, 19, Bolling’s only child with wife Adrienne, died on Friday evening, just hours after his father was parted ways with the cable giant.
Bolling, 54, confirmed the tragic passing of the University of Colorado Boulder student in a tweet on Saturday afternoon, saying that he and his wife were distraught.
‘Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated’ wrote Bolling.
He also later tweeted authorities have told him that there were no signs of self-harm and that an autopsy will take place next week.
The shocking news was first reported in a tweet by journalist Yashar Ali, who also broke the story last month about alleged lewd texts sent by Bolling to female staff members at Fox News.
Bolling insists the allegations are false and has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Ali.
