Frank Ocean’s Brother Ryan Breaux Dies In Fiery Car Crash:
Frank Ocean and his family are apparently in mourning. It’s been reported that his younger brother, Ryan Breaux, passed away following a fiery car crash in the Southern California town of Thousand Oaks on early Sunday morning, July 2.
Frank Ocean’s 18-year-old brother Ryan Breaux and a second young man were both killed early Sunday when a car they were riding in crashed into a tree and went up in flames in Southern California.
18-year-old Ryan and his friend Zeek were driving in Thousands Oaks when they were involved in a car crash.
The accident took place just after 1:30 A.M. near Westlake Boulevard and Skelton Canyon Circle, when the car appeared to leave the roadway and collide with a tree in the center median. It’s stated that the force of the wreck was so great that the car was ripped in half and engulfed in flames when authorities came upon it.
The Grammy-winning singer’s younger sibling, Ryan Breaux, and the teen’s former classmate Ezekiel “Zeek” Bishop, 20, were cruising in a Tesla that veered off Westlake Boulevard in Thousand Oaks, some 64km northwest of Los Angeles.
Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene to discover the car fully engulfed in flames, the department said.
The two occupants were pronounced dead at the scene. It wasn’t immediately clear who was behind the wheel or what caused the fiery crash.

KTLA was shooting at the scene hours after the accident. A white Porsche is seen on the road with a man sitting on the curb. Many believe the person sitting at the scene looks like Frank Ocean.
The victims Ryan Breaux, 18, and his friend Zeek, 20, — both members of the Oaks Christian High School Class of 2019 — had been driving south near Skelton Canyon when their car left the road and smashed into a tree in the center median.
Police are investigating the cause of the accident, but say speed may have been a factor.
“The speed limit is north of 45 mph,” Deputy Wendell Campbell told KTLA. “It’s a nice big stretch of road, so sometimes people do pick up speed.”
The sheriff’s department said it was waiting for the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office to notify next of kin before officially releasing the identity of the occupants.
Neither Katonya nor Ocean have yet to publicly comment on Ryan Breaux’s death.
Ryan Breaux would’ve turned 19 on September 1, 2020. His mother, Katonya Breaux, wrote a birthday message to her youngest son last year on Instagram. She said, “Happy 18th Ryan! I spent hours going through photos because I know how specific you are and didn’t want you to ask me to take any down. Look at you! Brave, beautiful and kind, loving and genuine, this is the first step to adulthood kiddo, you’ve got this! We love you so much! Live your blessed life Ry!”
Ryan Breaux’s last Instagram post was him posing in a car captioned, “windy city.” Many of his close friends have been leaving emotional messages after hearing the news.
Ryan’s last tweet read, “only doing entanglements in 2020.” One fan wrote, “my heart goes out to the breaux family. be respectful yall, recall theres a face behind who u direct ur words toward i hope u find peace on ur journey back up to where u were meant to return, may u rest in power and luminance, for thats how we will choose to remember u, always”
Ryan Breaux previously appeared on his older brother’s records, with a recorded chat between the two of them and some friends appearing at the end of Futura Free on Ocean’s 2016 album, Blonde. The group talks about their first memories, amazing things they’ve witnessed, superpowers they wished they had, and talents they’re proud of.
Friends have been leaving messages of condolences on Ryan Breaux’s last social media posts as well as posting remembrances on their own accounts.
