Throughout their relationship, Quesada often shared sweet snapshots of herself with Noriega. Last October, she commemorated their first anniversary with a series of photos of the couple, writing, “Thank you for being my person, I was so lucky.”
In April, Quesada wrote on her Instagram Story, per Dexerto, that the two were “no longer together” and that it was a “mutual decision.” She added, “We’re just young and sometimes things don’t go your way. I will love him forever and he will always be my best friend.”
Noriega was discovered unresponsive in the parking lot of a Southern California mall, law enforcement sources told TMZ. No foul play is suspected and an autopsy is underway, according to the outlet.
The TikTok star encouraged open discussion about mental health on her platform and shared her struggle with addiction. In his final days, Noriega announced that he had created a Discord server to discuss mental health with fans.
“I just created a Discord server strictly for mental health because of how much I love you guys and how much I fight with myself,” he explained in a recent TikTok. “I want you not to be alone and to feel safe.”
