Most people would remember Christina Applegate, 36, as the girl that played the ditzy blonde, Kelly Bundy, on TV’s Married With Children and also on TV’s Samantha Who?  Her on again/off again boyfriend, Lee Grivas, 26, was found dead in his apartment on July 1, 2008. The Los Angeles coroner’s office said a syringe was found at the scene. Gravis was a skateboarder and a photographer. A neighbor had found Grivas’s body Tuesday evening in his living room in his Hollywood apartment.

Grivas apparently has a history of drug abuse, which caused problems in his relationship with Applegate. Associated Content is reporting that The Los Angeles coroner’s department has ruled the cause of his untimely death as a drug overdose.

Christina and Lee first got together after she and Jonathan Schaech got a divorce in 2006. They met through a performer in her Sweet Charity Broadway Show and they have dated off and on for a few years.

Christina has been reported to have paid her respects to Grivas and has expressed her condolences to his family over their loss. “I am profoundly saddened,” Applegate said speaking of the death of Grivas. “Lee was an incredible human being who was an extremely important and beautiful part of my life.” She said he is missed beyond words.
