The actress said she's "profoundly saddened" by the death of his ex-boyfriend, whose dead body was found by a neighbor in the living room of his Hollywood apartment Tuesday, July 1.

Lee Grivas, the former boyfriend of actress Christina Applegate, was found dead in the living room of his Hollywood apartment Tuesday, July 1. His body was discovered by a neighbor and he was pronounced dead at 5:25 P.M.

An investigation is under way to find the cause of Grivas' death. And while the autopsy has not been completed, authorities said that Grivas had a history of drug abuse and that an officer found a syringe at the scene. "Grivas did have a history of drug abuse, and our investigator found a syringe at the scene," Lt. Fred Corral of the L.A. Department of Coroner said in a statement. Though so, authorities are "not making any preliminary conclusions until a toxicology report is completed."

Speaking about Grivas' sudden death, Applegate told E! News on Thursday, July 3, "I am profoundly saddened. Lee was an incredible human being who was an extremely important and beautiful part of my life. He is missed beyond words. He touched so many and I feel much sadness for his mother, brother and all of his family and friends."

Applegate and Grivas, who's a photographer, dated on and off for years after the pair met through a dancer in her Broadway show "Sweet Charity" around 2006, a year after her actor husband Jonathan Schaech filed for divorce. They briefly split later that year before rekindling their romance over the last few months.
