Soap Opera Star Kristoff St

Soap Opera Star Kristoff St

Kristoff St. John, an actor best known for his longtime role on the popular soap opera The Young and the Restless, has died at 52. Safety crews responded to the home, but he was pronounced dead.

The publication goes on to reports that there was no sign of foul play, but claims that one source told them alcohol may have played a role in his death.

The soul-crippling, untimely death of soap opera superstar Kristoff St. John has me reflecting on how the Daytime Emmy-winner helped disrupt the often-negative portrayal of Black men in soaps.

St. John regularly spoke about the profoundness of that loss, and how his life was forever changed.

Twice divorced, St. John became engaged to Russian model Kseniya Mikhaleva in September. She got to geek out and ask every question she had and she and I both properly fan-girled over the gift of this lovely man. Kristoff made that moment happen.

Kristoff St. John's cause of death has been deferred by the Los Angeles County Coroner until an "additional investigation" is completed.

Among the first to pay their respects to the star was "Community" actress Yvette Nicole Brown, who said the news had "truly broken [her] heart".

A history of tragedy: St. John and his ex-wife, boxer Mia St. John, lost their son, Julian, to suicide in 2014. In 2017, Entertainment Weekly reported that St. John himself entered treatment after a "mental health scare". "It begins on the day your child passes, and ends the day the parent joins them". "Kristoff was a loving kind generous sweet hilarious gifted human".

Those reports were slammed by Mia St. John.

The Young and the Restless premiered in 1973 on CBS and is now in its 46th season.

St. John received numerous awards, including nine Daytime Emmys, over the 25 years he worked on The Young and the Restless.
