The "General Hospital" star passed away on Tuesday in San Diego following a suspected “cardiac event."

According to sources close to the Desperate Housewives actress, Longoria was “deeply concerned” about her ex-husband after he was arrested in May for public intoxication.

Christopher was arrested on May 26 at the Hollywood Burbank Airport after he fell asleep on the ground due to an alleged high alcohol consumption.

Police at the time said that the former soap star was “unable to care for himself.”

After his arrest, Longoria’s close friend said that the actress could hardly recognize her ex-husband. The pair were married from 2002 to 2004.

“She would give Tyler any help he needs,” a source close to Longoria said in July. "Including paying for a trip to rehab."
