New details have surfaced about the tragic death of Toya Wright’s ex-boyfriend, former NFL player James Hardy.

Hardy, 31, was found dead in the Maumee River in Indiana on Wednesday, days after his mother reported him missing on May 30. According to the Fort Wayne Police Department, Hardy’s body was lodged in a dam in the river, although the exact cause of his death has yet to be determined. Authority sources say Hardy’s body appears to have been in the water for several days.

Following news of his death, Wright posted a message on her Instagram account expressing her condolences to his family.

Toya and Hardy dated for a few months back in 2009, when their blind date was filmed for her reality show Toya & Tiny. During the date, the pair bonded about their life experiences, family and overcoming hardships.

Hardy played in the NFL from 2008-2011 but was sidelined by injuries. Post NFL, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting /modeling career, but things seemed to have taken a turn in 2014 when he was arrested after attacking police officers who responded to a disturbing the peace call at his home. He was later ordered to undergo treatment at a mental health facility.

Friends close to him are now wondering if mental health issues may have played a part in his death.

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is amazing. I would not be the person I am today with out her.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
