“I don’t know where I was at in my mental state,” he said, “but between the depression, anxiety, the COVID effects, the medication, the alcohol, I did something that I never thought I would ever do.”
Nic thanked Savannah and Todd for their support. His ex shared the video on her Instagram, writing, “Mental health is real… this is our truth. I’m so proud of you Nic. Thanking God everyday that he’s allowed us to keep you.”
In recent months, as Savannah navigated life as the new guardian of her brother Grayson, 17, and niece Chloe, 10, following the start of Todd and Julie’s federal prison sentences for tax fraud in January, Nic concentrated on his career as a real estate broker in Nashville and spent time with his own loved ones.
Three days before his death, he shared a photo of himself on a night out with a group of friends in the city. Weeks before his passing, he shared pics from a visit to his family.
“Getting to go home this past weekend and seeing my family was something that I need more than I knew,” he wrote on Instagram. “Time in this life goes by quicker and quicker each day.”
