Aleksey is dead at age 29. Apparently, committed a drug overdose suicide at his Rego Park apartment last weekend and was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital later that morning, cause of death not yet officially released.

I am truly shocked, to be honest. Six years ago I was among the many of us who found his embellishments story amusing, when it hit the news, but I really thought he was genuinely gifted in many ways and would go places. I envied his boldness. He was a good tennis player and his private tennis students appreciated him. I cannot believe the negative internet fame ultimately crushed his spirit.
