"Devastating to hear of Mike Starr succumbing to his illness," VH1's Celebrity Rehab and Sober House star Dr. Drew Pinsky wrote on Twitter in reference to Starr's longtime battle with drug addiction. "So very sad. Our prayers are with his family."

"My stomach is in my throat. We love U, Mike. #RIPMikey," D'Amato wrote on Twitter.

"Mike Starr was my homey. He had a larger than life heart. My last visit w/him was a funny & sweet one. I'll always rmbr that. <3 #RIPMike," D'Amato added in a subsequent tweet.
