According to ABC News 7, two people were killed in a single-vehicle collision in Thousand Oaks, California at around 1:30 a.m. local time.

One of Ocean’s early songs ‘Orion’ was written in dedication to his younger brother Ryan. Breaux also features on ‘Futura Free’, the final song from Ocean’s critically acclaimed 2016 album, ‘blonde’.

Ocean and his family are yet to comment publicly on Breaux’s passing.
