Jeff Conaway, the troubled actor of “Taxi” and “Grease” fame whose addiction problems were well chronicled for years by reality TV and the media, has died, reports the Los Angeles Times. He was 60.

He was taken off life support Thursday (May 26) and died Friday in Encino, nine days after being put into a medically induced coma.

Conaway’s manager Phil Brock said the actor was found unconscious May 11 after an apparent overdose of painkillers. Reports said he might have been in that state for 10 hours before being found. Brock said the actor was suffering from pneumonia and already was sick at the time of the overdose.
