Charlie Sheen’s ex-assistant—who was believed by some to have also been the star’s best friend—has died.

TMZ reports that Rick Calamaro was found dead yesterday in his Los Angeles home, and that police discovered “numerous pain medications and an open bottle of alcohol.”

However, the official cause of his death hasn’t yet been confirmed.

It’s been said that the former club promoter supplied Sheen with drugs over their decade-long friendship, and was thought by many to have been responsible for the “Anger Management” actor’s darkest days in 2011.

Calamaro was even along on the infamous trip where Sheen trashed his Plaza Hotel room.
