In an unfortunate twist of events, TMZ has confirmed with FNC sources that Eric Bolling’s son was found dead Friday afternoon just hours after Bolling was let go from FOX News Channel. 19 year old, Eric Chase Bolling, Jr. apparantly died of suicide via drug overdose.
According to TMZ, Bolling, Jr. had a hard time dealing with the latest revelations regarding his father. He was extremely embarrassed by the stories and was “emotionally upset.”
Eric Bolling had a successful stint on FOX News Channel and is best known for co-hosting “The Five.” He along with other FOX News Channel hosts, including former host Bill O’Reilly and current host Sean Hannity, have recently come under fire for what many believe are a result of organized false attacks from the left.
This latest revelation will make matters even tougher for Bolling, who has vowed to clear his name regarding lewd text messages sent to co-workers. FOX News Channel issued the following statement:
“We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Eric Bolling’s son. Eric Chase was a wonderful young man and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bolling family.”
