It was recently revealed that Alexi had passed away due to “alcohol-induced degeneration of the liver and pancreas connective tissue.” The release of the cause of death, by Alexi's ex-wife and former Sinergy bandmate, Kimberly Goss, led to public condemnation from Alexi's sister and the mother of his child, leading to any ugly public battle of words.
