Nigerian Natalie Adepoju found dead in U.S. with ‘Twilight’ actor boyfriend Gregory Tyree Boyce

Nigerian Natalie Adepoju has been found dead in the United States with ‘Twilight’ actor boyfriend Gregory Tyree Boyce, and American newspapers reported the story as if she did not matter.

Adepoju and Boyce were found dead in the couple’s Las Vegas condo on May 13, E! reported on Monday. He was 30 years old while her age was not specified.

Gregory Tyree Boyce is an actor known for playing Tyler Crowley in the first “Twilight” film.

The report said Boyce and Adepoju were discovered by his cousin last Wednesday, after the cousin saw Boyce’s car still at the condo even though he was due to travel to Los Angeles. Their causes of death are still pending.

“Boyce’s fame came from a small role in the 2008 vampire romance film, in which his character has a crush on Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and almost hits her with his van, leading to her rescue by Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). Boyce is survived by a 10-year-old daughter, Alaya,” reported New York Daily News.

In reporting the story, American newspapers barely mentioned her, focusing entirely on the actor and not on the other human being described as his girlfriend.

A report in E! said: “The source says that prior to his death Gregory was “really focused and handling a lot of business.” And though he had moved to Las Vegas to help his mother, the insider reveals Gregory “would commute to LA for acting jobs and to see his daughter.”

“A second source adds, “Greg was definitely a person who loved life and [was] super positive… super animated, really witty, he was the life of the party. I will definitely miss him. He was one of my funniest friends in LA and made my experience there really memorable.”

“Gregory is most commonly known for his role as Tyler Crowley in the famous Twilight films.”
