Lady Gaga Mourns Death of ''Born This Way'' Co-Star Rick Genest

Montreal model and artist Rick Genest, also known as Zombie Boy, has died, police sources have told Radio-Canada.

Genest distinguished himself from other models by covering himself with tattoos of the body's inner organs, veins and skeletal structures, earning him his Zombie Boy nickname.

Tattooed model Rick Genest, famous for starring in Lady Gaga's music video for "Born This Way" has reportedly died of suicide at 32.

"We must work to change our approach to mental health was put on the first plan, to have ceased to be a taboo topic, about which we can not speak", she wrote on Twitter.

Genest had his breakthrough role in Laga Gaga's 2011 music video, in which she painted her face similar to his tattoos and the pair wore tuxes.

City has already broken its transfer record, signing Riyad Mahrez last month for 60 million pounds (then $80 million). All three have been linked with moves away, with Real Madrid and Manchester United sniffing around.

Genest was operated on at a young age because of a brain tumour and suffered from mental health issues throughout his life. "We must save each other", she added.

He was also involved with the Home Depot Canada Foundation to bring awareness to youth homelessness.

At the time of his death, he held the Guinness World Record for the most insect tattoos (176) and the most bone tattoos (139). His management company, Dulcedo Management, paid tribute to the artist on Facebook, writing in part that he had been "loved by all those who had the chance to meet him and know him". "We received the bad news early in the day, and team members rushed to support his family and loved ones in this awful and hard time", - wrote in the social network heads of model schools where worked Rick.

"Immediately you knew this was a kind and gentle soul who had some deep concerns about anybody who is on the fringes or being dismissed for how they looked".

"Thank you, ZB, for the wonderful moments in your company and for your handsome smile". He went on to appear in Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is open 24 hours a day at 800-273-8255.
