Patricia stated that “the other causes of death being told are not true,” since there were many theories regarding Billy Miller’s cause of death.
Billy Miller, a star on General Hospital, committed suicide at the age of 43, according to Billy’s mother. Billy passed away in Austin, Texas, on Friday, September 15. Billy’s management shared the statement on X (formerly Twitter) on behalf of Billy’s mother, Patricia Miller.
Patricia admitted that her son committed suicide in a statement to Soap Opera Digest. Billy endured a long, arduous, and courageous battle with bipolar depression for years, according to Patricia. He exerted every effort to keep the illness under control. She continued by saying that Billy “loved his family, his friends, and his fans, but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life.”
As there were numerous theories concerning Billy’s cause of death after the news of his passing appeared, Patricia stated that “the other causes of death being told are not true,” adding, “I wish they were but they just aren’t.”
“We are all desperately trying to deal with our loss because we all loved him so much.”
Patricia expressed her appreciation for the support she had received from her son’s fans in the following words: “I want to personally thank the many fans & personal friends for the overwhelming amount of love, prayers, and condolences sent to me and my family on the devastating death of my beautiful son BJ – Billy Miller.”
“We all adored him dearly and are struggling mightily to come to terms with our loss. I have nothing else to say,” she said, adding, “Thank you for your love and support.
Billy passed away just two days before turning 44. His mother Patricia and sister Megan are still alive.
According to Billy’s representatives, he was experiencing “manic depression” at the time of his death, according to TMZ. Billy co-owned the restaurant and pub The Belmont in Los Angeles, California, and a spokesman there earlier confirmed his passing.
