Breaking the tragic news on her Instagram account, Sarah Piana wrote a touching tribute to her former husband:

“I’m in tears writing this that @1dayumay has just passed away. I can hardly believe this… I am so saddened & heartbroken that he didn’t make it.”

I’m in tears writing this that @1dayumay has just passed away. I can barely believe this… I am so saddened & heartbroken that he didn’t make it. I just want to say THANK YOU Rich for teaching me so much about life, whether it was the easy or the hard way. We had our ups and downs but we sure had an awesome time in each other’s presence along with us fighting through some dark times together. You truly touched many people’s heart and helped so many!!! It inspired me in many ways to see the huge impact you had on people all over the world. Not many people know that me and him are STILL legally married till this day despite all rumors. I have NOTHING to gain by saying that but want everyone to know the truth. I know that people say stuff on social media but I truly am not the “bad” person people think I am. I actually saved Rich’s life 1 time before, glad I was there for him at that time. Rich, I hope you feel better now in heaven and that you’re up there healthy, smiling & telling everyone “how it is, being REAL & doing your thing”. Rest In Peace my dear husband. #GoneButNeverForgotten #RichPiana #RIP 😢 🙏🏼❤️. P.S. I want to wish my deepest condolence to Chanel @c_no5 and thanking her for being there for him, loving him & showing him support. You’re an angel. We will all miss him so much, may his soul & spirit Rest In Peace Forever🙏🏼. XOXO Sara Piana. . . . #Repost @1dayumay (@get_repost) ・・・ Great weekend together @sara.piana and I had some nice time together since we didn’t film the Bigger By The Day videos over the weekend!!

Piana who was born in Los Angeles in 1971 and made his name as an elite bodybuilder and as a former Mr. California winner was rushed to hospital on the 10th August after falling ill at home reportedly from a ‘steroid overdose’. Various media outlets are reporting that the bodybuilder has been taking steroids for the past 28 years.

The news comes a week after Piana’s girlfriend, Chanel Jansen, posted a photo of the couple holding hands in hospital – and asked for positive messages from Rich’s fans.

The world wide outpouring to send Rich voicemails and messages to have played or read to him is overwhelming!❤ We can’t thank you all enough for your continued support during this time. To those who have been so respectful and come to his defense when others have been disgusting excuses for human beings -THANK YOU! The only update I’m permitted to give at this time is that he is alive, he is ok, and the excellent medical professionals here as well as myself and his close loved ones are doing all we can to get him back to a full recovery. Please continue to remain patient and respectful. This is a very stressful time for Rich and everyone around him so please understand if we’re quiet it’s with good reason. #myoneandonly #richpiana #loveofmylife #whateverittakes #love #strength #prayersforpiana #positive #5percenters #respect #loyalty #positivevibes #positivevibesonly @1dayumay
