"Real World" star Joey Kovar died after taking what could turn out to be a lethal mixture of Viagra, cocaine and alcohol ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... Thursday night, just before midnight, Joey went to a woman's house in Chicago Ridge, Illinois, told her he'd been doing cocaine ... and asked her to drive him to a location where he could score more coke. The woman, Stacey Achterhof, rebuffed his request, and asked him to stay at her place.

We're told Joey, who was also fueled up on alcohol, took "some Viagra" and messed around with Stacey ... but they did not have sex. At some point Stacey fell asleep, and when she awakened early Friday morning she found Joey bleeding from the nose and ears.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... his eyes were also "blackened" -- something that frequently occurs when someone ODs. Law enforcement sources tell us they suspect Joey had an aneurysm.

0817_joey_kovar_death_ROOM_tmzStacey was interviewed extensively by cops on Friday. We're told she says she saw Joey take Adderall and Xanax in recent weeks -- and multiple sources close to Joey tell us although they were prescribed, he often took more than called for by doctors.

There's no indication, at this point, Stacey will be charged with a crime.

As for Joey, toxicology results will take weeks, but our law enforcement sources say they believe the results will show a fatal combo of Viagra and cocaine and alcohol.

Whatever combination of narcotics/alcohol may or may not have led to his death....the reality of this situation is that Joey is gone and he is not coming back. His loved ones are grieving. The only positive that could possibly come from his passing, would be for others struggling with addiction to have a wake- up call and seek help. Rest in peace Joey.

I don't understand why a guy his age would be taking viagra.He was young and still in his prime. I guess it was all the drugs. Poor guy, drug addiction is a sad and lonely ride. May the demons finally rest this troubled soul. RIP Joey!
As for Stacey, she looks like she's been through the wringer herself. I'm sure she was right there with him getting high. and i'm sure no one was sleeping. maybe she waited to come down a bit before calling cops. no one sleeps when all strung out on coke. shame on her for selling the story.

Death by Viagra. That's just kind of embarrassing. Sad, but embarrassing. Viagra is dangerous enough in and of itself. Mixing it with cocaine and booze is just asking to die. However, seeing the picture of this alleged female certainly explains the Viagra.

She looks like a crack head. I wonder how long it took her to "clean" her house before she had the cops and press over. And selling the story and the pics after her "friends" death? Gee, sounds like she cared a lot. With friends like that, who needs enemys.


RIP Joey, you always seemed like a cool guy.
