Eddie Money Cause of Death Revealed

Eddie Money passed away from complications after undergoing a heart valve procedure, according to an autopsy.

Money underwent a minor procedure this summer, and shortly after developed complications from pneumonia, reports People Magazine. Money was undergoing chemotherapy, but that was postponed due to illness. His cancer was reportedly under control for three months, and his esophageal cancer diagnosis was not the cause of death.

Money received the diagnosis in 2018 while filming his reality show, Real Money, for AXSTV.

“I thought I was just going in to get a checkup and [the doctor] told me that I got cancer,” Money said in a clip.

“The Money family regrets to announce that Eddie passed away peacefully early this morning,” his family said in a statement. “It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving husband and father. We cannot imagine our world without him. We are grateful that he will live on forever through his music.”

Money passed away Friday (Sept. 13) at the age of 70.
