Love After Lockup cast who have died

Love After Lockup cast who have died Asonta Tracie Alla Scott

Earlier this month we shared the tragic news that Love During Lockup star Asonta Gholston had died after being involved in a car crash on September 1.

Asonta’s passing was not the first for the Love After Lockup franchise, and despite the fact that he was just 33, Asonta is not the youngest cast member who has passed away.

Love After Lockup cast who have died


Given the concept of the Love After Lockup and Love During Lockup shows, it would make sense that the incarcerated cast members might have a higher mortality rate — especially those serving time due to drug addiction issues.

That was the case for Love After Lockup Season 1 inmate Alla Subbotina. Alla was serving a five-year prison sentence for selling heroin when she and her boyfriend, James Cristia, filmed for the first season of the show.

Alla’s addiction issues were talked about at length on the show, and viewers will recall her relapsing after her release.

Alla Subbotina passed away on August 7, 2021. She was just 31 years old.

Alla’s mother, Yelena, revealed the tragic news on Facebook and strongly implied that Alla’s passing was drug-related:

Sadly, addiction won today. My beloved daughter, Alla passed away earlier today. I’m beyond sadden by this and hoping she is in a better place. Addiction is an ugly disease and my daughter had been battling addiction for many years. Rest In Peace my forever daughter. We love you Allochka and always will remember you Forever.

Alla’s on screen love interest James posted about Alla’s passing a few days later. “I’m still processing this, I can’t believe you’re gone, this can’t actually be real,” James wrote. “I made so many mistakes, not appreciating you enough is the biggest one that I have ever made.”


Just like Alla, Love After Lockup Season 2 inmate Tracie Wagaman had serious drug addiction issues. Viewers will recall that she stole her fiancé Clint Brady’s rental car and disappeared within a couple days of her release.

Tracie’s addiction issues continued to play out on screen (and off screen) as she and Clint returned for Life After Lockup.

Tracie Wagaman died on July 1, 2021. She was found in her Las Vegas hotel room just one week after giving birth to her second child, a baby girl. Tracie was 41 years old.

The Las Vegas Coroner’s Office later determined Tracie’s official cause of death was methamphetamine toxicity.


Love After Lockup Season 2 star Scott Davey is the only cast member included in this list who wasn’t the inmate in his/her on-screen relationship. (Scott dated convicted felon Elizabeth “Lizzie” Kommes, who had a very extensive history of alcohol abuse.)

Despite not being an inmate on Love After Lockup, Scott did have addiction issues. He talked openly about those issues, and his time in federal prison for breaking into ATM machines, in a 2019 interview with the Fancounters podcast.

Scott Davey died on November 12, 2021 at the age of 54. It is unknown what Scott’s cause of death was.


Asonta was featured on the third season of Love During Lockup along with his rapper bae, Raneka Hayes. the couple will be returning for Love After Lockup Season 8, premiering later tonight.

Asonta died on September 1, 2023 after being involved in a car crash in his hometown of Toccoa, Georgia.

According to multiple reports, Asonta was traveling at a high rate of speed in a no passing zone when he crossed over the double lines on a curve and crashed into a pickup truck with four people inside.

The four people in the other vehicle (ranging in ages from 15 to 24) were all hospitalized and released with non-life-threatening injuries. Asonta was pronounced dead on the scene. He was just 33 years old.

Asonta’s funeral was on Sunday, September 10 in Toccoa. Raneka was in attendance, as was Asonta’s girlfriend Alexis, who is currently five-months pregnant with Asonta’s son.
