Balelo was found dead in his car on Monday after he apparently killed himself via carbon monoxide poisoning, TMZ reported.

The 40-year-old reality TV star's vehicle had reportedly been parked with the motor running in the garage at his auction house in Simi Valley, CA.

According to TMZ sources, Balelo's suicide occurred only two days after he had been arrested for alleged possession of a controlled substance on Saturday.

Once released from jail, he reportedly sought out his fiancee for help because he was feeling the desire to hurt himself. 

On Sunday, the couple allegedly talked for several hours and then Balelo napped for four hours afterward, waking up in a seemingly better mental state. Balelo's fiancee reportedly left him in his office Sunday night and then his body was found by one of his employees the following morning.

An autopsy is reportedly being conducted today.
