Princess Beatrice’s Ex-Boyfriend Found Dead in Miami Hotel Room

International news
Princess Beatrice’s former boyfriend turned up dead in a Miami hotel earlier this year from a suspected drug overdose, Florida cops confirmed to The Daily Beast on Wednesday.

Cops said they were called to a downtown hotel room on Feb. 7 at the citizenM Miami Worldcenter, where the 41-year-old Paolo Liuzzo was discovered and pronounced dead at 3:34 p.m.

An official cause of death is yet to be released, but Miami cops said his death is being “investigated as an overdose death.” Cops did not say whether foul play was suspected or not.

Insiders told The Sun that Liuzzo, who began dating Beatrice in 2005 when she was 17 and he was 24, had long struggled with drugs and had plunged into a “vicious cycle” of gambling-related debt.

Beatrice, now 35, has not publicly addressed her former beau’s death. She’s since married the multi-millionaire property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, with whom she has a daughter, Sienna.
