Drena De Niro, Leo’s mother, came to Instagram on July 3 to allege that her son died from “fentanyl-laced pills” after a fan questioned the circumstances surrounding her son’s death.

“Someone sold him fentanyl-laced pills that they knew were laced yet still sold them to him,” the grieving mother penned in the comments. “For all these people still f****** around selling and buying this s***, my son is gone forever.”

Authorities have yet to confirm an official cause of death for Leo as of this publishing.

On July 2, the 51-year-old daughter of the Meet the Parents actor acknowledged her son’s death on Instagram with a sorrowful post.

“My beautiful sweet angel. I have loved you beyond words or description from the moment I felt you in my belly. You have been my joy my heart and all that was ever pure and real in my life. I wish I was with you right now. I wish I was with you,” she wrote in the caption of a photo of her late son.

“I don’t know how to live without you but I’ll try to go on and spread the love and light that you so made me feel in getting to be your mama. You were so deeply loved and appreciated and I wish that love alone could have saved you.”
