COUNTRY music star Jason Aldean is mourning the loss of his long-time friend.
On August 25, 2021, Aldean announced the loss of his friend Ryan Fleming on social media along with several photos of the two together.
Who was Ryan ‘Rhino’ Fleming?
Ryan “Rhino” Fleming was known as Aldean’s security guard and friend.
Prior to his music success, Aldean and Flemming grew up together in Georgia.
Before joining his childhood friend, Flemming worked as a bouncer and was also a member of the local sheriff.
“He came out and traveled the world with us, and for years, if [you] saw me, Rhino wasn’t too far away,” Aldean said in a social media post.
How did Ryan Fleming die?
Aldean was the first to announce Fleming’s passing.
“Man this is a hard post to write. We lost one of our boys today. Ryan Fleming aka @rhinolin3,” Aldean wrote.
“…He was the person who pulled me offstage during the Route 91 shooting and put his life in danger to take care of me and my crew. He was a good man and an even better friend. We will all miss you brother and thank you for having my back all these years. We love ya Rhino! RIP.”
While his death has been confirmed, his cause of death has not been released.
