LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Logo TV channel says that a contestant who competed on "RuPaul's Drag Race" as Sahara Davenport has died. Antoine Ashley was 27.

A channel spokesman says the cause of Ashley's death Monday was not immediately released. His manager, David Charpentier, says a statement is being planned by his family.

Logo said in a statement Tuesday that Ashley was "an amazing artist and entertainer who'll be deeply missed."

He was a contestant on "RuPaul's Drag Race" in 2010. The classically trained dancer also released a dance single, "Go Off," this year.

RuPaul tweeted that Antoine Ashley's death has left him shocked and heartbroken.
