Worth Green, the brother of Southern Charm star Taylor Ann Green, passed away on June 8, 2023, at the age of 36. His death shocked and saddened his family, friends, and fans, who remembered him as a vibrant, outgoing, and loving person. But what was the cause of Worth Green’s death? How did he die so young and unexpectedly?
The Family’s Statement
The Green family has not revealed the cause of Worth Green’s death to the public. They have requested privacy and respect during this difficult time. According to his obituary, Worth Green “woke up in the arms of Jesus on Thursday, June 8, 2023”. He is survived by his parents Richard C. Green and Leslie Dark Green, as well as his two sisters, Catie and Taylor.
Worth Green was the eldest of the three Green siblings. He graduated from East Carolina University in 2009 and worked as a senior project manager for Weatherguard Roofing & Restoration in Charlotte. He had a passion for traveling, golfing, and teaching. He lived abroad in South Korea for a year to teach English and played golf in Ireland with his father. He also had a girlfriend, Caroline Evans, whom he loved dearly and planned to have a future with.
The Fans’ Speculations
Since the family has not disclosed the cause of Worth Green’s death, many fans have speculated about what could have happened to him. Some have suggested that he may have committed suicide, while others have dismissed this theory as unfounded and disrespectful. Some have also wondered if he may have died of natural causes or a chronic illness, but there is no evidence to support this either.
One of the most common theories on Reddit is that he may have died of Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that can affect various organs and systems in the body. This theory is based on the fact that Olivia Flowers, another Southern Charm star’s sibling, died of Lyme disease earlier this year. However, this theory is also unsubstantiated and may be a case of confusion or coincidence.

Regardless of the cause of Worth Green’s death, his friends and loved ones have paid tribute to him on social media and in person. His sister Catie King shared a heartfelt post on Instagram, calling him “the best big brother I could have ever asked for” . His sister Taylor Ann Green also posted a picture of him on her Instagram story, writing “I love you so much” .
Many Southern Charm stars also expressed their condolences and support to the Green family. Shep Rose, Taylor Ann Green’s boyfriend, commented on Catie King’s post, saying “Absolutely one of a kind. A pleasure to know and to laugh with” . Craig Conover wrote “I’m so sorry Catie. Sending love to you and your family” . Leva Bonaparte said “I’m so sorry sweet girl. Sending you so much love” .
The family held a visitation followed by a celebration of life on June 17, 2023, at Nebo Crossing Church in Marion, North Carolina.
