MTV Alum Andy Milonakis Reveals Father's Death
MTV alum Andy Milonakis has revealed the sad news that his father recently died. In a post on Twitter, the 47-year-old comedian/actor shared a somber post in honor of his late dad, George. No cause of death has been shared at this time.
After informing his fans and followers of the tragic news, Milonakis went on to heavily criticize "the hospitals in Greece" who he says "only care about money." Milonakis then added, "To all the people struggling with loss or sick family members, my thoughts are with you. Life is brutal." Many have since replied to the post with messages of support and sympathy, with one friend tweeting back, "Ah man deepest condolences. He was so cool to hang with drinking Johnny Walker black on the boat to Kythira. Funny guy, had good OG energy. Saw a bit of you in him. So sad, he will be missed. Hearts to the family."
Amen brother, just lost my pops. It’s a brutal process. Heart goes out to you and the fam 💛— FaZe Banks (@Banks) March 23, 2023
"Very sorry for your loss Andy. Sending my condolences. Unfortunately I had similar issues with the best hospitals here too, even with insurance, so the whole system is unfortunately broken," another person offered, with one more user writing, "Andy... damn man this hurts to hear. Super sorry things went so roughly over there. I'll always remember Papa Milo from my trip last year and was so honored to meet such a character and amazing human."
Sadly, Storage Wars star Rene Nezhoda responded to Milokakis' tweet to share that he too recently lost his father. "Sorry for you loss my friend I lost my dad last night also may they both rest in peace," Nezhoda wrote alongside a memorial photo of his father, Hunter. "Sorry man. We're in the same s—ty boat," Milonakis replied.
