TikTok star Rory Teasley has reportedly died after being strangled by his boyfriend.
According to WDIV, Oakland County Sheriff’s Office in Pontiac, Michigan were called after midnight on Thursday, Jan. 6 to Teasley’s apartment. When police arrived, 31-year-old Docquen Jovo Watkins, Teasley’s boyfriend of 10 years, said the TikTok star was “sleeping.” Teasley wasn’t breathing and was later pronounced dead at a hospital, WDIV reports.
The two reportedly got into an argument over a video game. According to authorities, Watkins then strangled Teasley to death.
Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said, “We see far too often across the country these days when people resort to violence over trivial and insignificant disagreements. There is never a reason where violence is acceptable over a disagreement. Those who do so will be held accountable.”
Watkins is currently being held at the Oakland County Jail with no bond. A probable cause conference is scheduled for Jan. 18 and a preliminary examination is set for Jan. 25.
Teasley had over 222,000 followers on TikTok. See his final TikTok video below, which pokes fun at approaching 30 years old. Rory Teasley was only 28.
