Clark James Gable III, the Cheaters host and the only grandson of late Academy Award-winning actor Clark Gable, has died. He was 30.

The television personality passed away on February 22 at a Dallas Hospital. According to the TMZ report, his fiancée found him unresponsive in his bed.

As for the cause of death, according to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office, Gable III died of an accidental fentanyl overdose.

A spokesperson for the Dallas County Southwestern Institute of Forensic Science said that he died from "the combined effects of fentanyl, oxycodone and alprazolam."

His grandfather, Clark Gable, who was best known for starring in Gone With the Wind, won an Oscar Award for the best actor for the 1934 film, It Happened One Night. He passed away in 1960 in Los Angeles.
