MENTAL HEALTH BATTLE
Before he died, Huey appeared to be struggling with mental health issues and tweeted “f**k life” before deactivating his account.
A month before his death, he also posted a short format gag video called “When you bipolar,” which documents him living with the condition.
Some fans have speculated whether Huey was in fact suffering from depression,
“That goes to show you you NEVER know what’s going on in someone’s mind,” tweeted one.
Huey had also opened up about his time growing up in Stockton, California for the ShotBy Manzo YouTube channel.
He spoke about an a tough upbringing in a house with four sisters and a brother where there was “no food, no nothing.”

‘KEPT ME GOING’
When asked what his mother did about it, Huey said: “She was getting beaten up too.”
To avoid going home, Huey said he would spend most of his time outside with friends.
School also “kept me going”, Huey said.
“[Going to school] was me getting my morning breakfast. You know what I’m saying? Like the pizza with the cheese sticks and the milk bread … like that’s what kept me going.”
