It sounds like MTV may be jumping in to help Shain Gandee’s family pay for the “Buckwild” star’s funeral expenses.

A family source told E! News that MTV, which carries the show, has decided to pick up funeral expenses for the late star. Gandee, along with his uncle David Gandee and Donald Myers, were found dead Monday morning as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.

With fans of the show donating money to cover the funeral costs, Gandee’s family will now use the funds to help pay for the funerals of David and Donald, as well as the costs of the personnel that were used to search for the men.

The story says that funeral plans should be finalized tomorrow.
