Comedian and The Price Is Right host Drew Carey is mourning the untimely death of Amie Harwick, his ex-fiancée.
The 61-year-old comedian paid tribute to Amie via Twitter on Monday.
“I hope you’re lucky enough to have someone in your life that loves as much as she did,” he wrote, and posted a photo of the pair together.

Amie, 38, was a Hollywood-based therapist and author of The New Sex Bible for Women: The Complete Guide to Sexual Self-Awareness and Intimacy.
Drew proposed to Amie in January 2018. However, they ended their engagement later that year.
Around 1:16 am Saturday, police responded to an alarming call about a “woman screaming,” according to a press release from the Los Angeles Police Department. When officers arrived to the Hollywood Hills home, they were met by Amie’s roommate. She told them that Amie’s ex-boyfriend was assaulting her inside the residence.
When officers checked the house, they found Amie unresponsive, lying on the ground beneath a third story balcony. And as stated in the press release, “She suffered significant injuries consistent with a fall.”
Medics transported Amie to a nearby hospital, where she later passed away.
Only hours after the incident, police arrested 41-year-old suspect Gareth Pursehouse, Amie’s former boyfriend. Officials charged him with murder. His bail is $2 million. A scheduled court appearance is not immediately available.
A rep for Drew Carey issued a statement on his behalf that stated,
“Amie and I had a love that people are lucky to have once in a lifetime. She was a positive force in the world, a tireless and unapologetic champion for women, and passionate about her work as a therapist.”
“I am over come with grief,” the statement continues. “I would like to thank you in advance for giving myself and everyone who loved Amie privacy while we try to work through this tragic situation.”
