Ryan Channing: Ian Thorpe’s ex’s family collides with a horrible rumor about Bali’s death

A family member of Ian Thorpe’s ex-boyfriend Ryan Channing denounced a vile rumor about the 32-year-old’s sudden death in Bali.

A family member of Ian Thorpe’s ex-boyfriend Ryan Channing came across vile rumors that the 32-year-old had HIV when he died suddenly in Bali.

The successful model, lawyer and businessman from Perth died suddenly in Bali after “battling health problems” for some time.

His family says his death was not the result of the Covid infection that hospitalized him in Sydney eight weeks ago.

His skin care products company, The Blaq Group, confirmed Thursday that Mr. Channing had been battling health problems for a few months before his death, but the nature of these problems is unknown.

Speculators took to Channing’s Instagram page overnight Wednesday to make unsubstantiated claims that he had HIV.

Abbey Channing, a young relative of the creator of the skin care brand, has responded to the cruel trolls.

One person wrote: “You will notice that Ryan went to the hospital with Covid.

“Classic reaction of a healthy and otherwise young male who is immunocompromised due to HIV.”

Ms. Channing replied, “Please don’t make assumptions about someone’s death.”

In addition to being an unfounded claim, it also assumes that someone with HIV may die from contracting the virus.

the Australian Federation of AIDS Organizations states that living with HIV today is very different from what it meant for a person’s continued health and life expectancy when the outbreak began.

“Today, an HIV-positive person who is on effective treatment can live as long and healthy a life as a person who does not have HIV,” he says.

“A person with HIV is described as ‘HIV positive’, which means they receive a ‘positive’ result from a blood test for HIV infection. This doesn’t mean they have AIDS.

“AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) occurs due to severe damage to a person’s immune system as a result of HIV. Unless a person starts treatment, they will be vulnerable to infections and diseases that their immune system would normally fight. “

Another person wrote on social media: “Only 32 years old and always the picture of health.

“Suicide is a terrible thing, mental health funding needs to be improved.”

Ms. Channing wrote again, “Please don’t make assumptions about someone’s death.”

On Thursday, Channing’s skincare company, The Blaq Group, released an exciting tribute, remembering the 32-year-old for his “fun-loving spirit.”

“It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that The Blaq Group founder Ryan Channing has passed away at the age of 32.

“Ryan had been struggling with health problems for the past few months and died in hospital after falling ill suddenly on Sunday 9 May while on vacation in Bali.

“His inspiration has led to the creation of highly regarded skincare brands, Flight Mode and Generation Skin, as well as the flagship brand Blaq, which strives to strengthen equality through its distinctive messages of acceptance and inclusiveness.”

Death from shock was announced on Instagram Wednesday by his younger brother Jake.

“As the news headlines prompted my whole family to post about this unfortunate moment in our life, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that my brother Ryan recently passed away on Sunday May 8 at age 32,” Jake wrote.

“As we seek answers and try to come to terms with the heartbreaking loss of my beautiful older brother, we ask for your prayers, support and privacy, he will be forever loved, never forgotten and forever young.

“To my older brother, I love you, see you soon one day, we will miss you more than you know.”

Their sister Charis wrote: “Saying goodbye to you on Sunday was the hardest thing my family and I have ever had to do. 32 years young, you left too soon.

“As we seek answers and try to come to terms with the heartbreaking loss of my brother, we ask for your prayers, support and privacy.

“I know you will look down on us and we love you very much.”

It is understood that Channing was taken to BIMC Hospital in Bali on May 8th.

Channing was Thorpe’s first official partner after he came out gay in an interview with Michael Parkinson after years of speculation.

Channing and Thorpe began dating in 2015 before separating in June 2019.

The couple spoke during the marriage equality plebiscite and explored options for having their first child with the help of a surrogate in the United States.

A few months before separating, Thorpe confirmed their plans to expand her family after she was spotted at a reproductive clinic in Los Angeles in January 2019.

“We’ve been talking about it and doing it for a while, but we’re still at the beginning,” Thorpe told the Daily Mail at the time.

“Yes, we decided to visit the Los Angeles clinic, it’s all part of the plan at this stage.”

Channing said the US has presented an easier path to parenthood because Australia’s laws governing surrogacy for same-sex couples are stricter.

Channing’s skincare company owns the Blaq, Flight Mode, and Generation Skin brands.

Last July he revealed that he was shooting a pilot for a new reality show on Netflix in Los Angeles.

He said the show, called The Skintrepreneurs, will follow the journey of The Blaq Group, which is Australia’s largest exporter of leather products.
