In 2017, Verne was hospitalized for alcoholism and left many of his fans concerned. After being released from the hospital, he shared a statement with PEOPLE, “I've been hearing from some concerned fans, so I'd like to address a very personal situation. As you know, I've battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day.”

Alcoholism is often overlooked as a legitimate disease, however, it is deadly and can have lasting effects on its victims. When Verne’s death was released in April, fans were sure that it was alcohol that had destroyed his life. However, they were wrong.
