According to NBC News, his mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, confirmed the divorced dating advisor died, but she declined to release details about what happened. Sadly, she revealed she learned of her son’s death via social media.
”That was a terrible thing for social media to put that out. I didn’t even know. I hadn’t even been notified," she said in a phone call with NBC News on Friday. "All I’m doing is requesting that people pray for us."
The Atlanta Police Department revealed officers responded to an apartment Thursday morning "regarding a person injured." By the time police arrived, first responders were performing CPR on an unresponsive man later identified as Samuels.
According to the police report, Kevin was entertaining a woman named Ortencia Alcantara (who identified herself as a nurse) whom he met that night. She spent the night at his apartment. Thursday morning, Kevin began complaining about chest pain before falling on top of her, so she called 911.

He was reportedly taken to Piedmont Hospital. When contacted, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said it could not confirm or deny any information. His cause of death still has not been revealed.
A Twitter user shared Kevin revealed he battled Stage 3 Hodgkin Lymphoma in college, which reportedly raises your risk of dying from a heart attack in later years:
He said he had battled stage 3 non Hodgkin’s lymphoma in college. They say the radiation treatments from that triples the risks of you dying from a heart attack

With over 1 million Instagram followers and 1.4 million YouTube subscribers, his controversial attacks on Black women often spark outrage. The self-proclaimed “professional image consultant” gained popularity at the expense of black women as he often times would humiliate and insult black women when they joined his live sessions.
Not only that, he often times talked down on men like Future – men who procreate and spread their seed with several different women. While he condemns that behavior, in the same breath he blames black women for choosing to have children with men like that. He was highly criticized for the blame and energy never being equal, though.
What’s interesting is that Kevin (who considered himself a high value man) was with a nurse. He very recently preached to his followers that high value men should stay away from women of certain professions, including nurses, and should never marry one.
Some of his controversial views would rile folks up on social media, sparking heated discussions between men and woman. After learning that Kevin may have died, some people rejoiced, while others condemned them for being happy about his death.
Unconfirmed reports have hit the net stating that YouTuber Kevin Samuels has died — and the delusional toxic black women are rejoicing as if their position in life or bank accounts have increased.

1. Makes money out of holding women accountable, and telling black women the blunt truth
2. Not once incited any violence to anyone
3. Never happened
He’s done more for the black community than all the women he talks to put together

Kevin Samuels has made a career off of shamelessly disgracing Black women for profit.
He emboldened the most toxic individuals to project tired and harmful narratives about Black women.
Dead or alive, what a disgraceful life to live.
That’s all I’ve got for that misogynist.

All I can say about Kevin Samuels is if you spend your time disrespecting people in life, don’t be surprised at people disrespecting you in death. No matter how cruel it may be, the legacy you leave behind will be known by the fruit you bore while you were here.
