Billie Eilish paid an emotional tribute to Angus Cloud during her headlining set at Lollapalooza on Thursday evening.

The 25 year old actor, best known for his role as big-hearted drug dealer Fezco O'Neill on HBO's Euphoria, tragically passed away at his California home last week. And just days after Billie shared a photo tribute to him on her Instagram Story, she dedicated the song Never Felt So Alone to the late actor while on the T-Mobile stage at Grant Park in Chicago.

The hit song she co-sang with Labrinth was featured in the second season of Euphoria. After wrapping the song, the 21 year old singer said, "RIP Angus Cloud everybody," before the crowd erupted into cheers.

Following Angus' passing, his family said: "It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today. As an artist, a friend, a brother and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways." His family also shared that the star was struggling with the loss of his father, who had recently died the week prior.

The star's family added that Angus was open about his struggle with his mental health and said they hoped his tragic passing could be a reminder to other people that they are not alone. Angus' family said: "Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend."

Tributes for the beloved actor have poured in following the devastating news, including tear-jerking messages from his Euphoria co-stars, including a heartfelt note from Zendaya.

In a new post, Zendaya wrote: "I'm so grateful I got the chance to know him in this life, to call him a brother, to see his warm kind eyes and bright smile, or hear his infectious cackle of a laugh (I'm smiling now just thinking of it) I know people use this expression often when talking about folks they love…' they could light up any room they entered' but boy let me tell you, he was the best at it," she continued:

Zendaya added: "I'd like to remember him that way. For all of the boundless light, love and joy he always managed to give us. I'll cherish every moment."

Before working with the likes of Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney on Euphoria, Angus had been working as a waiter at a chicken and waffle restaurant in New York. He was spotted by talent scout Eléonore Hendricks who asked him to come read for the role, an opportunity which he first thought was a scam but led to Hollywood stardom.
