Reality TV star Mike Atari has died aged 28.

He was made famous through his appearances in docu-soap Jerseylicious, which aired from 2010-2013. He also worked as a personal trainer. 

Police told TMZ he was found at his home in Westbury, Long Island, New York.

The cause of death is currently unknown and pending toxicology tests. Foul play is reportedly not suspected.     

Atari’s love life was a major theme of Jerseylicious, which was centred around the lives of the employees of the Gatsby Salon.

One of the main characters was Olivia Blois Sharpe, who Atari dated.

She expressed her grief at the news on Instagram.

“My heart has never hurt this hard,” she wrote.

“I wouldn't trade those three years we spent together for the world. You showed me never ending love and loyalty. 

“You accepted me as my crazy goofy self and loved it. You looked at me the way no one ever has. You had the most wonderful heart. 

“I wish I made more of an attempt to get together to catch up when you asked. I'll always love you.”
