Mike Sacha, Kid Rock’s personal assistant, was found dead on the musician’s Nashville property on Monday.
According to The Tennessean, Sacha, 30, died in an ATV crash on the estate after a cookout Sunday night.
Around midnight, Sacha reportedly gave guests a ride from the cookout to the driveway so they could catch an Uber. The accident occurred on his way back to the house.
TMZ reports that Sacha was found facedown in an embankment, having suffered severe head injuries.
Kid Rock confirmed the news on his website, saying, "I am beyond devastated to report that my personal assistant Mike Sacha passed away today in an ATV accident here in Nashville. He was a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with.”
Rock continued, "I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I can not imagine how they must feel. Myself, the band, our family, friends and co-workers are devastated over this loss. We were supposed to be back in Michigan today, but I am going to stay here with Mike until I can bring him home to his family.”
He concluded, "We've already been contacted by the press asking if it was me who was in the accident, so I want to stop any rumors before they spread. I’m asking everyone to please respect our and his families' privacy in this difficult time. RIP Mike. We will never forget you, my friend.”
