Kevin Short, the famous Jesus Christ “lookalike” who posed with thousands of tourists on Hollywood Boulevard has died, reports say.
Short, aged 57, passed away in Los Angeles from pulmonary issues just days before Christmas.
His friend Brian Hamilton confirmed his death on Facebook, informing his fans that Short unfortunately passed before the holidays after a “brief illness”.
Widely regarded as one of the most popular and recognisable characters to walk the streets of the city, Short had been entertaining tourists for eight years before his death.
He was so famous that he was featured in a Lana Del Rey music video and Aerosmith wrote “Street Jesus” about him, reports claim.
Here are some photos of the late ‘Jesus’:
