Angus Cloud’s mom made heart-wrenching 911 call for son's ‘possible overdose’ before Euphoria star's tragic death at 25 | The Sun

DETAILS surrounding Angus Cloud's unexpected death have continued pouring in, including his mother's call to 911.

The HBO star died at home in Oakland, California, just one week after he buried his father in Ireland.

On Monday, TMZ broke the news that the Euphoria actor had died at 25, but details were initially sparse.

The outlet has since learned from Oakland Police that Cloud's mother called 911 at around 11.30am on Monday morning, reporting a "possible overdose."

She said on the phone that Cloud did not have a pulse.

Emergency first responders pronounced the actor dead on the scene.

A source close to Cloud told TMZ that the young star had been dealing with suicidal thoughts upon returning home to California from Ireland for his father's funeral.

He was reportedly staying at his family's home while he attempted to overcome the grief he was dealing with.

The U.S. Sun can reveal that Cloud was last seen in public at a debut album launch party for MacArthur Maze, a Bay Area-based rap group, over the weekend.

Social media photos and videos show the star smiling at the camera while wearing glasses and a cap over a bandana.

He was surrounded by friends at the event.

In one video in particular, Cloud got up close and personal with the camera as he said something that couldn't be heard over rap music.


Cloud's surviving family released a statement to TMZ regarding his death.

In it, they said: "It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways.

"Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. Angus was open about his battle with mental health and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence."

The statement concluded: "We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss."

His family did not share any specifics about his death, but did allude to personal struggles he was facing after his father died.

Cloud did not speak much about his father's death on social media.

On July 14 he shared a photo of his late dad wearing a red tracksuit while sticking out a pinky.

He simply captioned the post: "Miss u breh."

It's unclear how his father died.

An obituary from a rugby club he was associated with reveals only that he died "after a short illness."

Cloud was best known for playing Fezco on the Emmy-winning teen drama Euphoria.

He starred alongside Zendaya and Maude Apatow.

Cloud was a main character on the show for two seasons.

In addition to appearing on that show, he landed roles in films like North Hollywood, which came out in 2021, and The Line, released in 2023. 

He was recently cast in a new horror movie from Scream 6 directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet.

Cloud was set to star opposite Melissa Berrera in that movie.

In addition to his film credits, Cloud appeared in several music videos.

Euphoria creator Sam Levinson released a statement to Deadline on Cloud's death.

"There was no one quite like Angus. He was too special, too talented and way too young to leave us so soon," he said.

"He also struggled, like many of us, with addiction and depression. I hope he knew how many hearts he touched. I loved him. I always will. Rest in Peace and God Bless his family."


Cloud previously opened up to Variety about surviving a near-death experience, revealing the cause of the large scar on his head which was visible on Euphoria.

He shared in the interview that he fell into a construction pit while walking at night when he was 15. 

He recalled: "I woke up 12 hours later at the bottom.

"I was trapped."

He eventually climbed out of the pit and took a bus to his mom's house.

Cloud told Variety: "It was hella hard to climb out.

"because my skull was broken, but my skin wasn't, so all the bleeding was internal, pressing up against my brain."

He said he wanted to just go home and get some rest but his mom wouldn't let him – ultimately saving his life.

"I would have died," he said. "She gave me some water, and I started throwing up hella mouthfuls of crimson red blood. S**t was crazy. So them my mama took me to the children's hospital, and they saved my life. That's what the scar's from. They cut my head open, they put some screws and a plate over where I broke my skill and – s**t, sealed me back up, and that was that."


In April 2023, Cloud's former manager accused him of struggling with addiction, as reported by Page Six at the time.

Diomi Cordero shared a lengthy Twitter thread in which he outlined his supposed working relationship with Cloud, which he claimed began when the pair met in a rehab clinic.

Cordero said in his tweets that he was working the "graveyard shift" as a "mental health technician" while chasing his dream of becoming an independent talent manager.

Just two weeks into his tenure there, he met Cloud – reportedly a patient at the time.

The pair are said to have grown close and began working together in April 2021, according to Cordero's account.

He claimed in his tweets that Cloud's affairs were far from in order and he hired him a publicist and new "acting and fashion agents."

They helped him "acquire health insurance" and more.

Cordero tweeted: "This intervention allowed Angus to regain control of his personal and professional life."

He also alleged that it wasn't just Cloud's professional life that was a mess when he came on, but his private life too.

He claimed the actor's personal affairs were in a "state of disarray."

Cordero alleged that Cloud was doing well for a time, despite being surrounded by friends who he claimed jeopardized the actor's apparent sobriety.

In a tweet, he wrote: "Their reckless behavior and lack of regard for Angus' recovery served as a significant obstacle to his progress, ultimately contributing to his relapse."
