(WJBK) - Kid Rock is mourning the loss of his personal assistant. The 30-year-old named Michael Sacha was found dead on Kid Rock's property outside Nashville Monday.
Sasha reportedly had given two people a ride on an ATV down a long driveway on the property on Sunday night to a waiting Uber car. According to investigators, it appears he crashed on his way back to the house.
His death has been ruled accidental.
Kid Rock released a statement on his website saying:
"I am beyond devastated to report that my personal assistant Mike Sacha passed away today in an ATV accident here in Nashville. He was a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with. I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I can not imagine how they must feel. Myself, the band, our family, friends and co-workers are devastated over this loss. We were supposed to be back in Michigan today, but I am going to stay here with Mike until I can bring him home to his family. We've already been contacted by the press asking if it was me who was in the accident, so I want to stop any rumors before they spread. I’m asking everyone to please respect our and his families' privacy in this difficult time. RIP Mike. We will never forget you, my friend."
