Paramedics reportedly pronounced Charlie dead at the scene. His cause of death is currently unknown.
Charlie’s mum said the last thing they spoke about was how happy the former was to have his two sons.
He shares his two children with ex-wife Sabrina, who he married over a decade ago.
The pair were one of three couples featured on the reality show True Life: I’m Getting Married.
He said at the time: “[Sabrina] had her freak-outs, too, it’s just that my freak-out trumped everything else.”
“In defence of myself, I really did what any Staten Islander would have done in that situation.”
Following the news of his death this evening, many fans flocked to social media to pay tribute.
Podcast host Kate Casey wrote: “So heartbroken to read Charlie Balducci from MTV: True Life passed away.
